How to Choose the Right Solid Wood Door

by Boris Dzhingarov on Mar 3, 2016

Deciding which doors should go where in your home is hard work and it will take some time and lots of planning and research to find the best doors for your budget and your style. If you like the idea of fitting solid wood doors, then you will need to decide which type of wooden doors will work best in your home as there are lots of different types of wood to choose from.

The great thing about using solid wood doors is that they are hard-wearing and durable, so you will be making a good investment. Good quality solid wood doors are available from www.doorstore.co.uk and you can use wooden doors for internal and external use.

Three main types of wood are commonly used to make doors with:

  1. Oak
  2. Mahogany
  3. Walnut

If you want to leave your doors in their natural wooden state rather than paint them, you should choose a wood that you like the color and finish of. You will need to protect them with a coat of varnish or stain, and this can help to protect your doors from everything from the sun to dog scratches.

However, if you are going to paint your doors, then you have the flexibility to choose a door based on their unique properties, so let’s take a look at these three different kinds of wood now.

Oak

Oak is very durable, so it makes for a great wood to use on external doors, such as a front door. It is a good insulator and it also works well with other furnishings making it easy to use whatever décor you have. Oak is also a very affordable type of wood, which means it not only offers a strong door but also one that is suitable for all budgets.

Mahogany

Mahogany has a naturally classy look to it, as it exudes elegance with its dark tones and rich finish. It is a great wood to use for doors that won’t be painted, due to its intense colors and powerful features and works well in a more traditional home that boasts a grandiose look.

Walnut

Walnut is somewhere in between mahogany and oak, in terms of its color and features. It is a versatile solid wood that can be used in both modern and traditionally-designed homes and just as with the other two types of wood; it is extremely durable and will last for a long time, ensuring it is a good value for money investment.

External Doors

External doors are often made from mahogany or GRP/composite and it is common for homeowners to paint their front doors, partly to give it more protection from the weather outside and partly for aesthetic reasons.

You can have panels added to your solid wood door, as well as glass and you can choose between a wide variety of knobs and handles as well as locks to ensure that your doors work perfectly within your home.
