Choosing internal doors isn’t as straightforward as it seems. There’s so much to consider. Ideally, creating a checklist is a good idea, because it will help you go over some of the things you need to consider before making a purchase. Fitting internal doors should be a simple and straightforward exercise, but only if you’ve covered all your bases first.
What Type of Internal Doors Should You Buy?
An internal door can be made from a variety different materials, including:
Fire Internal Doors
We’ve covered fire doors in another of our posts, but always remember that a fire door should have been fully tested and meet British Standards before you make a purchase. They’ll be labelled either FD60 or FD30 which is the amount of time each door will allow for escape. You can have them in any style or finish so they’ll blend in with the décor of your home.
Perhaps door handles are the last thing on your mind, but the detail can be important. Not only are they functional, they can match the internal décor of your home, whether it’s classic or contemporary. Cleans lines and minimal fuss are best for a more modern home, while a more decorative handle may be better for classic interiors. Here at The Replacement Door Company we have a great range of door handles.
Fitting Your Internal Doors
Make sure your door is the right size for your doorways, this may seem obvious, but you may have to trim the doors before fitting them or else you might expose the inside. You may have to cut off quite a size so make sure you choose a door that has the option of trimming.
Replacing One Internal Door or Several?
Rather than replace all the doors, perhaps in a new house, you may only be replacing one door. If this is the case, then you’re going to want to match it to the rest of the internal doors.
Make sure that when you choose your new internal doors that you’ll be able to customise it accordingly, so it matches. On the other hand you could just replace all the doors throughout the house and go for a completely new look.
