Each space has its own type of interior door

For rooms such as toilets or bedrooms, you will mainly opt for solid doors, to preserve privacy. On the other hand, for rooms in a row (living room dining room, for example), favor glass doors which will guarantee brightness. For a child’s room , you can turn to acoustic doors which will significantly reduce noise compared to standard door blocks (provided you also put a sound barrier). “There are also insulated doors that will protect against the cold and insulate the room, explains Véronique Degardin, door product manager at Lapeyre. They can be useful to separate the kitchen from the entrance to the garage or placed near the entrance, for example. The latter have a thermal insulation coefficient (Ud) of between 1.2 and 1.3 W/m2.K”.

Hinged or sliding interior doors?

Swing doors are by far the most common in France. They consist of a door and a frame connected to the masonry and only open on one side, depending on the location of the handle. Avoid in small spaces. They slide along a high rail and a floor guide and save space since you save between 0.77 and 1 m2 on the floor by eliminating the door opening. Often glazed, they are also more designer and ideal for many rooms such as the kitchen, the bathroom or to separate the living room from the dining room. Please note: you will not be able to use thecomes flattened in the event of surface-mounted installation unless you opt for a sliding door in a pocket system which slides completely into the wall, freeing up wall space.

Honeycomb or solid interior doors?

At the entry level, you will find so-called honeycomb doors. Less expensive, they are also much less resistant, specifies Philippe Anger, director of Anger Portes, a French company specializing in the manufacture of interior doors: “The interior of the door is made of honeycomb (cardboard) and air, it sounds hollow and will therefore be much more fragile than a wooden door.To increase their resistance, the honeycomb of our doors is tighter, the facings are two-sided and thicker, the cleats that frame the door is made of wood and not medium and finally, the frames are made of exotic wood”.

Whatever the material (chipboard, exotic wood, country wood such as oak or ash, or even glass), solid doors are more opulent and therefore more solid.

Particularly resistant, oak interior doors are perfect in a traditional interior. Montignac model in Oak de Style, 3 panels straight crosspieces. Raw product to be varnished.
