One of the critical aspects in door choice that you should consider before purchasing a door is the type of wood. Oak, Pine and Walnut are a few options you might come across while you are searching for doors. Less common types are also available such as Abachi, hardwoods, Hemlock, light and dark grey Ash. Then of course, if you are painting your doors then primed is the best option.
Oak is a type of wood which is famous for its durability and wear-resistance. Not just elegant in style but also help you increase the value of your house. They are a good insulator from noise hence making them perfect for houses with busy lives going on in different rooms. Oak doors can also protect you from cold as they do a great job in trapping the heat in your home. You can find a great variety of Oak Doors at Online Door Store all with different design features such as thickness, glazing, finish and number of panels.
Pinewood is a more affordable option. Since the wood can be easily tinted, it can be a good choice for anyone who is looking to match their doors with existing furniture in the house. The versatility of pine doors hence makes them a popular choice in the homes across the UK. Online Door Store not only has excellent designs in internal pine doors but also gives its customers a 10-year guarantee on their purchase.
Like Oak, Walnut is also hardwood and is known for its durability and resilience. Walnut doors look best in buildings with contemporary style design as they represent the modern day elegance and sophistication. While the wood is also available in light colours, darker colours such as chocolate brown are growing in popularity. Hence, Walnut Doors suit best homeowners who are not just looking for high quality but also have a darker-coloured theme for their home design.
Abachi is another darker choice of finish. Extremely elegant it has close parallel lined grain. Our new Abachi doors have distinctive vertical side rails separated from the inside horizontal grained panel by lighter highlight marquetry lines.
Although hardwoods are usually associated with external doors you can also find interior designs in hardwood. When varnished hardwood doors have a really deep rich colour to them which is both distinctive and elegant.
One of the more recent additions to the range of veneers available is Ash. This is available in a variety of door designs in both light and dark shades. A grey is certainly a striking and unusual choice… possibly best in contemporary interior designs. They are definitely a feature that your guests will notice and have a wow factor that won’t be missed.
Hemlock is a softwood as it is a type of fir tree. However it has a very close grain which makes as durable as a hardwood. It is a relatively economical wood and so is quite common in construction. The close grain makes it ideal for decoration, providing a very smooth finish.
If you are planning to have painted doors in your home. Perhaps to match a specific colour scheme, then you can opt for the multitude of white-primed doors we have in our ranges at Online Door Store. These doors are factory sprayed with two coats of primer. This gives the ideal base for your final top coat, whatever colour that may be.
