A Guide to Selecting New Interior Doors for Your Home

Wooden doors

The material and style you select for your new interior doors will impact the look, value, and comfort of your home. With all of the door options available at Southern Lumber, it can be challenging to narrow down your top choices. To make it easier, read this guide for tips on selecting new interior doors for your home.

Bi-Fold Doors and Sliders

Featuring hinged panels that are attached side by side, the bi-fold door is designed so that the panels can fold against each other. Bi-fold doors are great for utility rooms, closets, and other tight spaces. Sliding doors are another great interior door for a small space such as a bathroom.

Wood Doors

Buying a wood door ensures that you will give your home a warm, classic look and provide excellent soundproofing and insulation. Hardwood and softwood interior doors are available in a wide range of colors that complement the style of your home. With wood doors, you will enjoy the solid weight and unmistakable sturdiness that is not easily found with other door materials.

Paneled Doors

Paneled doors are classic, and look wonderful in both traditional and contemporary homes. French doors with glass panels that span the full length of the door are ideal for letting light in so that your home feels larger.

Fiberglass Doors

If you want the look of wood without the required level of maintenance, opt for molded fiberglass doors. They cost less than wood doors, and if they are solid-core they will offer good sound dampening performance.

Screen Doors

For a casual door that’s highly practical, it’s hard to beat a screen door. You can let the breeze in on a nice day while keeping your house safe from intruders. If you buy your screen doors from a reputable seller, you won’t have to compromise the appearance of your home.
