With all of the attention you put into choosing the perfect furnishings, wall coverings, drapes and accessories, it can be easy to overlook one easy and powerful update to your home: your interior doors. But by replacing your outdated interior doors with new ones, you can create dramatic change in any room of your home even if you’re on a budget.
There are many types of interior doors to choose from. Here are the most common:
- Flush doors – These doors are by far the cheapest option and come as either hollow or solid core. You may choose to purchase doors primed for paint or opt instead for veneer finishes which feature unique wood-grained patterns and complex designs.
- Panel doors – Panel doors offer more options in terms of design. Ranging from one to six panels arranged in various patterns, these doors add texture to an otherwise standard design.
- Glass doors – Use glass doors to add a focal point to your room. Be it a pantry, a dining room or an office entry, interior glass doors create the illusion of space and add an unbeatable aesthetic appeal. You can choose from clear, frosted, stained or mirrored glass, just to name a few.
- Closet doors – Closet doors come in two basic styles: sliding and folding. Though sliding doors take up less space, they only allow access to half of the closet at once. Folding doors, on the other hand, grant access to the whole space at once but can be dangerous for little fingers. Consider this when choosing which closet doors to use.
Doors need not be for function alone. Update your interior doors to instantly add style to any room. For more information about different types of interior doors and how they can impact your home, contact Interiors by Melody.
