What Type of Door Should I Choose For My House?

Posted by Joseph Schaffarczyk on

If you want to make an instant impression on your guests, you’ve got to look at all of the little details; the first thing they’re going to see is your front door. Having the right doors can change a room from good to great instantaneously. When it comes to selling your house, that could make all of the difference. Here we give a brief list on what type of doors you should install in your property.

A Pre-Finished Oak Door

The most common material you’re likely to find used in the construction of doors is wood. The material is readily available and, if sourced from within your community, helps to fuel the local economy. One of the most common types of wood utilised in the making of internal and external doors is oak. As a strong hardwood, it’s durable, requires little maintenance and is easy to clean. It’s always best to install a pre-finished oak door - meaning it’s already been varnished and is ready for immediate installation - from a trusted supplier like JB Kind, who have been in the industry for over 140 years.

Battened and Ledged

If you live in a rural cottage and would like to keep that rustic aesthetic alive in every area of your home, you could opt for what’s known as a ‘battened and ledged’ door. Used for aeons, these doors are simplistic and very cheap but, in the right setting, can be highly effective in bringing together a rural interior design. These doors secure the verticle timber battens with backwards ‘z’ shapes which are made from wooden braces and ledges.

PVC Doors

Poly Vinyl Chloride, or PVC, is a plastic-based material which is widely used in a number of capacities including in the production of windows, doors, pipes and a whole host of products used within a property. PVC is a very cheap, lightweight and durable material that is resistant to moisture and pests.

Glass Doors

You would usually expect to see glass used as a design element of a door or even wall, but there are plenty of products where it firmly takes centre stage. By using toughened or laminated glass, you can have both strength and elegance in your external or internal door.
