Wooden doors have been a great choice and a durable option for ages. A solid good quality hardwood door has its beauty and not just that; it enhances the structure and style of your house.

Types of wooden doors:

Wooden doors are mostly used in households and can be classified into three types depending on their placement in the house. They are: Solid wood doors: Made out of a solid slab of wood, these are the most expensive, yet most durable doors of all. The wood is either extracted from trees like pine, oak or maple. Mostly, the main doors are made using solid wood doors. They are dependable, have soundproofing abilities and are fire resistant as well. The only problem with solid wood doors, apart from their cost is that they change shape due to humidity. They expand or contract when coming in contact with water and moisture in rainy seasons. When doors expand due to coming in contact with rainwater, they might be hard to close and create handling problems. Hence, it is better to avoid such issues. If you form shade in front of your entrance, many effects of rain can be curbed. In this way, handling a solid hardwood door would become more comfortable. Hollow core doors: As the name suggests, this type of doors do not have solid slabs of wood used; they are honeycomb cover cardboard upon which a thin layer of high-quality wood is put. These types of doors are usually utilised for doors inside the houses. These doors are very affordable and do not cause any considerable change when coming in contact with water, unlike hardwood doors. But they are not fire resistant and can not block sound very well. These doors are not that heavy, and thus, even if you plan to install the door yourself, it won’t be a problem. Even though whole solid slabs are not used in constructing these, they are reliable. Solid core doors: These are a mixture of both hollow and solid wood doors. Solid core doors have better features, and they are pocket-friendly. The core is usually made up of maisonette, and on it, a thin layer of fine grade surface wood is glued. These doors can be used for both external and internal purposes. The solid core doors can block sound and are resistant to volume changes like expansion when they come in contact with water. But with this kind of doors, the style quotient is a bit low as there are limited design options. Still, solid core doors are a popular choice nowadays, and people are opting them for their durability. Even when they do not give a guarantee of safety and longevity like a solid wooden door, they are quite reliable and also come at a reasonable price. Now that you know about the different types of doors that can be used to make wooden doors, you must be wondering about things you need to consider when it comes to selecting the door. Well yes, there are a few things that you should keep a check on.

Budget: Any furniture setting must have a preconceived budget. If it’s new construction where you are considering getting doors, make sure you do proper budgeting of the doors.
