Hardwood – Made from one piece of solid wood. Traditional, strong and durable, with a variety of woods available. Great for sound blockage and upping the value of your home. On the other hand, they can be expensive, and they may warp or crack.
Moulded/Hollow – Made with a lattice/honeycomb core and coated with a veneer. Common in new homes, a money-saving alternative to solid doors, light, and easy to install. These doors rarely warp but they don’t block much sound or provide much fire resistance.
Engineered – Made with a core of multiple kinds of wood and coated with a veneer. The most common mass-produced door, it’s the best value for money, provides great sound and thermal insulation, and is unlikely to twist or warp.
Flush – Flat, plain door with no, or few, design features. Simple and elegant, they’re available in lots of different varnishes and finishes.
Bifold/Concertina – A great space-saving option, these doors open and close within the door frame as they are made in multiple sections and connected with hinges. These are common for walk-in wardrobes and pantries.
French – These are double doors that connect two rooms, often used between the living room and the dining room. They open on hinges that allow them to swing out and are available in many finishes. They’re a dramatic and chic option.
Panelled – Traditional in design with sunken or raised panels to produce the design. The most popular number of panels are 2, 4 and 6.
Sliding/Pocket – These doors open sideways on a track across a wall, or slide into a gap in the wall. They’re great for busy homes and are a fantastic space-saver.
Barn – Perfect for kitchens, these doors open in half horizontally, so they can be opened by only the top, the bottom, or both. They let air into a room without letting kids or pets in/out.
