The interior design of our home is crucial to creating a comfortable and cozy space. Among the main elements that influence the setting and functionality of our homes, of course, are our interior doors. They are not only functional barriers, but also serve as standout design elements contributing to the aesthetic appeal of the room.
In the following paragraphs, we will look at the four most frequently asked questions regarding the interior doors. Whether you’re embarking on a renovation project or starting out your new home design from scratch, we’re here to provide the most important guidance on interior doors you will need. Let’s dive in!
What are the standard dimensions of interior doors?
Homeowners are often interested in typical interior door sizes. We need to make sure that the doors fit standard frames and openings in the walls, right? However, it is important to note that there is no standard door size in Bulgaria. This in turn means that the risk of buying a ready-made interior door or one with a frame that does not fit the opening is high. If you buy an interior door with a frame and the opening that is provided for the door is too large, then this means that the gaps will need to be filled. This costs extra time, effort and money! For this reason, in recent years there has been a tendency for property owners to prefer custom-made interior doors.
Along with the fact that the door will fit in the intended location, custom doors have a host of other benefits. By trusting a company to make the doors for your new home or office, you get better quality workmanship. In addition, you also have freedom in the design of the doors themselves. In this regard, you can also choose more non-standard solutions, such as portal, sliding or glass interior doors.
What types of materials are used for interior doors?
This question arises because of preferences for durability, appearance and price. Interior doors are typically made from a variety of materials, including wood, MDF (medium density fiberboard), solid core, hollow core and glass. Each material offers unique advantages in terms of aesthetics, insulation and cost.
It is MDF that stands out as the preferred material for bespoke interior doors due to its flexibility and cost effectiveness. This type of fiberboards have a dense and smooth surface. MDF is ideal for making more complex designs and details of an interior door. The qualities of MDF boards allow precise customization, adapting to different styles and finishes. MDF doors are resistant to warping and cracking, which guarantees durability. In addition, MDF’s affordability makes it an attractive choice for custom projects. The material provides a high-quality finish without the corresponding increase in the price of the final product.
Glass is also an important material that is increasingly used in the manufacture of interior doors. Of course, in the manufacturing process, ordinary glass is not used, but hardened (tempered) glass with a thickness of 8 millimeters. This ensures maximum strength and safety of the door.
How do I choose the right interior door style for my home?
The style and design of interior doors are important considerations in any interior project. Homeowners often seek advice on matching interior doors to the aesthetics and design of their home. There are many different styles of doors available, such as portal, sliding, glass doors, each type with different variations, which makes the choice even more difficult. In this case, personal preferences and taste, as well as the existing interior decor, are decisive. You can find out more about the topic in a previous post of ours.
How can I improve the sound insulation of interior doors?
Improving the sound insulation of interior doors is important for any household, and especially for families with younger children. Several effective strategies can be used to achieve this. First and foremost, installing a insulation band is a practical solution. Installing one around the door frame effectively seals the gaps, preventing the transmission of vibrations, including sound. For a more substantial upgrade over soundproofing properties, consider replacing your existing door. Good options in this case are interior doors with a solid core. Solid-core doors made of materials such as MDF or natural wood are thicker and inherently better at blocking sound than hollow core interior doors.
Placing a double-sided seal on the bottom of the door is another effective measure. This seals the gap between the door and the floor, limiting the passage of sound. In addition, placing heavy curtains or acoustic panels on the walls around the door contributes to sound absorption and reduces echoes.
