If you're choosing interior doors for a more contemporary scheme, you'll find them in cherry, poplar, oak, hickory or walnut, among other woods. Many home builders are opting to use materials other than wood, though, and glass or metal doors are also popular. The style of the door should complement the style of your decor, experts agree, and you'll find such a variety of styles that choosing interior doors for your home may be almost mind-boggling. The various standard styles include those with two to eight panels, raised or flat panels, and French door styles. Add to those cafe doors, bi-fold doors, bypass doors and pocket doors, and you'll have a wide variety of interior doors to choose from for your new home.
To give a neat finish to the vertical edges of the door and to protect the edges of the panels, a narrow strip of timber is fastened to the door by a tongue and groove, or by gluing and pinning. This is known as a lipping. It is essential on external doors to prevent water getting under the facings and makes it easier to keep a neat edge when you have to plane off a little to make the door fit. On veneered doors the lipping is the same timber as the face veneer.
Unlike a regular wood or standard UPVC door, composite doors are formed from several materials. The inner section is usually foam for insulation, while for the outer skin you can choose from aluminum-steel, UPVC, or glass reinforced plastic (GRP). The latter material is very popular nowadays owing to its many intriguing properties that make it perfect for use in doors.
