Interior doors play an important role in maintaining privacy, but also add to the overall decor of the house. Gone are the days when interior doors were plain, boring and lacking character. In addition to doors made from wood and similar materials, glass is becoming increasingly popular. Glass doors have the benefit of helping parents to keep their eyes on the activities on the children who may be busy playing in another room.
If you are looking to replace your internal doors, be sure to measure the interior door sizes ahead of making your purchase. Especially if your contractor was instructed to build custom size interior doors initially, you must check the measurements. Most door sizes are usually 36, 30 or 24 inches.
Knowing the size of your doors is also important when purchasing furniture. You really would not want to have a situation where the furniture you have bought for the bedroom makes it way through the front door, but is unable to get through the bedroom door.
Termites are often a real threat for wooden interior doors. Have an expert pest controller check your door every couple of years for termites. If necessary, you can replace the affected doors with solid teak wood doors or even glass. Varnish alone can work for these interior doors. If you are looking for a fancy alternative to the usual interior doors, consider standard interior door sizes in french styles.
