The type of door needed for your room will depend on a number of factors, including the size of the door needed, the theme of the room and your own personal preference. For example, flush doors are inexpensive and don’t interfere much with the look of the room, but panel doors can add a touch of interest to the space. Bi-fold, French and sliding doors are ideal if you’re converting one room into two but still want to keep the flow of the rooms intact. Another type of door that is coming back into fashion is the ‘pocket’ door, ideal if you have a limitation on space.
The most popular material for interior doors is solid wood, solid-core or hollow-core doors. Wooden doors have the advantage that they can be stained or painted to match the room’s décor, and solid wood in particular is ideal as it is a heavy material, meaning that it will keep out draughts and noise.
