Timber doors are a timeless feature that can tie together the decor of any house. Our consumer habits have become more earth-conscious and timber is a sustainable material with many natural advantages over other materials. Whether interior or exterior, timber doors present a variety of benefits in both style and practicality.
Timber doors in interior design are as popular as ever. They can achieve a range of aims in decor; a classical aesthetic, a cosy welcoming feel, or as a clean and understated background piece. The types of timber doors available can suit almost any project, these might include:
The advantage of these types of wooden doors lies in their range of design potential. More properties, for example, are seeking to utilise natural light to fill the space and the option of sliding, folding, or French doors opens up that possibility.
Having the option of these styles is also ideal for restoration projects and designs stretch to many period styles including; Gothic, Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian, and the 1930s. With the right skilful joiner, you can give that old door an upgrade that loses none of the charm or character of the original.
The featured hardwood front door is a fantastic example of how you can satisfy bespoke needs while preserving the unique style timber provides. The reeded glass brings in plenty of natural light while preserving privacy, with the horizontal bar design tying together the sophisticated design. Coupled with the solid hardwood material, the multipoint locking system ensures that the front door is strong and secure.
Great style and versatility aren’t the only benefits of choosing timber doors. Updates in manufacturing technology mean that they have incredible longevity. Timber repairs are much easier than other materials, like uPVC. Accidents can happen and it’s a comfort to know that chips and knocks won’t spell a full replacement. Timber doors also have the environmental benefit of being incredibly well insulated, keeping you warmer in the winter and also cooler in the summer.
The featured charming four-panel French grey front door with a matching side panel perfectly highlights the positive impression possible with a painted external timber door. This particular piece is made from Idigbo that, while being as strong as English Oak, is lighter and more stable while finishing. It also dries brilliantly.
Maintaining the classic qualities of the past while committing to an eco-friendly and sustainable future is a fantastic goal. And timber is the best means of fulfilling that goal. With so many features and styles to choose from, the sheer variety of doors can help keep your home stylish, well-insulated, and most importantly unique.
