How to choose interior doors?
When choosing interior doors person confuses a variety of materials from which they are made. Doors have different value and have different properties.
When choosing the color of the door, it is necessary to determine whether it corresponds to the finishing palette of the whole room (it is illogical to first choose any element of the decoration, be it a door, a chandelier or a closet, and then finish building the rest of the interior from it). If how to choose the color of interior doors, obviously, the choice of material leaves more room for thought. Here we will talk about interior doors made of timber.
Solid wood doors
Solid wooden doors between rooms - a classic version. If you can afford to spend money, then deciding which interior doors to choose, you should definitely think about such doors. They look luxurious, have a very low sound conductivity. However, it is necessary to choose such doors carefully, because today among them there are a lot of poorly made ones.In this case, the door can be deformed with a sudden change in humidity, may have cracks, knots, pitch pockets and other defects. Even with a responsible approach to all stages of the manufacture of solid wood doors, the final product is very sensitive to mechanical impacts on it: scratching or chipping in such a door is very easy (although these defects are eliminated by repair). The price of a solid wood door (canvas + box) is about 300-400 US dollars.
Glued solid wood door
These doors are somewhat cheaper solid, they are assembled from separate small arrays. They should also be well considered before purchase, as the individual parts of the door may differ in color. Accurately matched in quality materials that have been properly processed, at the exit can give a wonderful interior door, which will not look much different from a solid wooden door.
When deciding on which interior doors to choose, people often stop on this option. It's all about its budget.Between the veneer, which are upholstered in such doors, usually there is either defective or generally waste wood. Hence the low cost of such structures. These doors are sensitive to temperature effects (in this case they can be deformed and warp) and conduct noise. In addition, the veneer is too soft, so repair if the surface of such a door is damaged is impossible.
The more serious flaws that manifest themselves in an unfair approach to the assembly of such doors include susceptibility to mold and mildew and stratification or peeling of the veneer.
Among economical options, doors filled with a cellular paper plate, which adds rigidity and weight to structures made of thin MDF or chipboard, are gaining popularity. The advantage, as in the previous case, is low cost. The disadvantages include, again, poor insulation and brittleness.
These doors are often treated when finishing office space, as well as in cases where interior doors are best to choose cheap.
