Knock, Knock! Who’s there? Your Interior Doors & They Need an Upgrade!

Your home’s interior doors can add style and compliment your existing features. They not only add privacy and reduce external noise, but also allow easy access to storage areas and closets. Adding new interior doors to your home does more than completely change your room’s appearance. Many people tend to not change the interior doors in your home for long periods of time so it is imperative that you choose the right style and design to compliment the room.  It’s a good idea to understand the main choices for door styles and we will discuss those below.

Panel doors

These types of doors are the most commonly used for residential use. They will have rectangular or square patterns that can be either one or multiple panels.  Some types of panel doors have glass inserts that add additional character to your room. Three and five panel doors are very popular these days, if you like to follow the current trend.

Bifold Doors

Bifold doors are connected into pairs with hinges and hung on tracks that fold into each other. You will find these doors typically used in bedroom closets, laundry rooms or even kitchen pantries. You want to find solid-core or solid-wood billfold doors because the heft of the doors is what keeps them from shuddering when you open them. If you have a small space or an area where you don’t want a full swinging door footprint a bifold door will work great in that space.

French Doors

French doors have multiple small windows set into the full length of the door.  They are going to provide less privacy and are typically used for more of a decorative door.  A French door will add a dramatic touch to any entryway. These types of doors contain two hinged hung doors mounted on either side of the opening that swings toward one another. If you use a French door closer to an exterior you will want to consider using double-pane glass to provide more insulation.

Sliding doors

Sliding doors are making a comeback in a big way in residential homes. Since they do not swing, rather they move gracefully along mounted tracks it is very useful in tight spaces as well as adding modern flair to any entryway. You do need to ensure you have enough room for the doors to move right or left when opening so some space is needed. Adding bold colored sliding doors or ones that look like an old barn door are popping up in homes across the US.

Pocket Doors

Want to add some old school style to your home? Introduce pocket doors! These interior doors slide similarly to sliding doors, but they slide into a prepare space, or pocket if you will. The biggest benefit of pocket doors is that the wall basically hides any part of the door making it a great option in rooms where the door rarely needs to be closed. They work very well in small spaces such as toilet rooms, closets and small entry ways.

"Had Lindus blow in foam insulation into attic, what a difference it’s made! The house is noticeably warmer in the winter and my furnace is not running nearly as much as before. I know it will also help keep the house cool in the summer heat. They also installed some new windows and exterior trim. Everything turned out really well. Corey Hessler was fantastic in dealing with from start to finish and answered all my questions. Everyone I dealt with from Lindus, especially Corey, were kind and professional. In today’s day and age you get what you pay for. Lindus really delivers!"
