Interior doors can act as visual statement pieces in your home. Whether you notice it or not, they make an impression. A number of homeowners focus on countertops, flooring, lighting, etc. to serve their sense of style. They tend to forget just how much interior doors can do as well. It’s important to select interior doors that will meet your standards while matching your style. The options are extensive, but we’ll take a look at some of the best designs to consider.
Panel Doors: If you’re thinking of doors that are durable and stylish, panel doors may be a good option for you. They are the most commonly used doors for interior purposes and are typically constructed from wood or a synthetic alternative. Panel doors offer a clean, modern look through the patterns designed on each section. Often times these patterns are square or rectangular but can also include additional design details such as glass inserts. For a classy interior door design that is sure to meet your personal taste and style, panel doors might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Folding Doors: These are a stylish option and are often referred to as “bi-fold” interior doors, meaning they only fold at one point. Bi-folds are mounted on a track and hinged together so they can fold into the other. While common in smaller spaces like bedroom closets or pantries, but some homeowners are getting creative and placing them in larger spaces such as family or dining room doorways. It’s important to note that bi-folds will swing open, so where ever you plan to install these, just make sure you have enough space to dedicate to a full swing.
French Doors: Most commonly used to visually connect two spaces, interior french doors are quite popular. They contain glass panes from top to bottom, allowing large amounts of natural light to shine through. Some designs, though, have a grid-like glass pattern as well. Many homeowners install french doors in a bedroom to connect the space to a deck, porch, or patio. They add glamour to any doorway and are a great option if you want the feel of an open concept floorplan.
Pocket Doors: If space-saving is on your agenda, then pocket doors are your go-to. They are single doors mounted to a sliding track that will roll into the wall. These are common for small bathrooms, linen closets, etc. An added pro to a pocket door is that the wall conceals the entire door, making it a great option for rooms where a door rarely needs to be closed. Consider a pocket door if you want the privacy of a closed room, but want an efficient, space-conscious design.
