How to choose an interior door
If you are considering a home remodel or are working on a new home, you may be wondering how to choose an interior door. While interior doors might often go unnoticed, they definitely contribute to the style of the room. Choosing the right interior doors can enhance the mood and tone of a room, making other design choices pop or blend, depending on your goals.
Some of the key factors to consider when choosing an interior door include style, materials, soundproofing and door swing. The primary function of the room can also impact the door selection. In some rooms, the door selection will be immediately apparent and could become a positive focal point, while in other rooms the doors should remain functional and blend into the design of the rest of the room.
You can mix and match different styles, while utilizing a connecting element to compliment the overall feel of the room. Pay attention to the size and other style elements of the room.
You might overlook right-hand or left-hand door swings. This determines where the hinges and handles are, and the way the door swings as it opens or closes.
Designers recommend that an interior door should never open into a hall or corridor, but there are exceptions to this as building codes may require outswings in certain situations.
