When choosing which type of door you want to install, there are many things to consider. You want to choose a design that will fit your space and complement your home’s style. Also, you need to consider if the wood species is weather-resistant while still looking great.
There are many door options available for interior purposes, including flush, shaker panel, panel and double doors. Some doors are made from solid wood, while others are made of a combination of composite materials that have been molded into forms or molds to resemble real wood.
Hollow Core Doors
A hollow-core door is a popular choice due to its cost-effectiveness, durability, and affordability. These doors are made from MDF, plywood or molded composite material. The doors manufacturer are compressed under extreme pressure to create a solid surface.
You can also choose to use structural composite lumber, or particleboard cores. These are attached together to make a sturdy structure. These cores are also less expensive than a solid core door and offer similar protection against fire.
Solid Hardwood Door
There are many hardwood species you can choose from to decorate your door. Maple, Oak and Narra are all popular choices.

The look and feel you choose for your home’s interior will have a huge impact on how it looks. The right kind of wood can give your space the timeless appeal you need to attract guests.
Apart from the wood, you will also need to consider the hardware used with the door. You will need to select locks and hinges which are compatible with the door’s core.
When choosing a lock, consider the style and type that will be used. You will also need to determine whether the lock has either a deadbolt or a knob.
If you are installing a wood door that requires electrical wiring, you may want to choose a door with a solid core. These doors can be equipped to accept panic hardware and mortise locks. This allows power to be run through the door’s core and makes the wiring invisible.
A solid core door can match your existing decor by being painted, stained, or finished with a color. You can customize it by adding glass.
