Which Bedroom Doors for You?

by Guest Post on Sep 29, 2011

If you are renovating your home from the bottom up then you are probably knee-deep in the complexities of kitchen and bathroom fittings, and can’t wait to get onto the simpler rooms such as the bedrooms. Don’t be complacent and skimp on attention to detail, however – once you’ve sorted the basics of your design scheme for upstairs, how about things like the interior doors which can change the entire look of your home? Read on for some questions to ask yourself to pick the best bedroom doors for you and your kids:

  1. Are you going to change all the doors in the house or just the ones upstairs? Whichever way you go then you might be looking at matching in, contrasting, or picking something entirely new.
  2. How about materials? Do you want hardwood doors, painted doors, glass panels, or something entirely different? Shop around to see what you like.
  3. What are the acoustics like in your home? Depending on the age and construction of the building you may need to consider soundproofing issues and the doors you choose will make a difference.
  4. How safety-conscious are you? Fire doors are ultra-sensible if you have concerns over fire safety in your home.
  5. What about the door furniture? That’s the handles to me and you! Modern, traditional, or contemporary – there are loads to go at.
  6. Do you have to consider other woodwork? Exposed wood skirting, architrave, solid boards, or engineered wood flooring will all need to either match, tone, or contrast if you are going for wood finish doors.
  7. Do you want to lock the world out? Don’t spoil your beautiful new doors by adding bolts or hooks once they are fitted. Buy them pre-fitted with any privacy or security lock requirements you may have.
