From oak and Shaker to pine and paintgrade doors, timber internal doors add warmth to your home’s interior, and are available in various forms.
Timber interior doors can be either solid or hollow core. Solid doors are either hardwood or softwood and are generally constructed from a number of separate panels, usually two to eight, depending on the style selected.
They are solidly constructed with mortise and tenon joints and can be trimmed to size to fit existing openings.
Hollow core doors on the other hand usually consist of a core made up of a honeycomb construction. They lack the strength of solid doors but are undoubtedly cheaper. So if you’re looking for a cost-effective solution, consider fitting a hollow core door.
Leading internal door manufacturers, should you wish to order specially, include Doorpak of Sheffield, Hamiltons of Norwich and Savoy doors of Lancashire.

One of the most popular wooden doors is the white primed interior door which is very reasonably priced. You can also buy interior wooden doors made from oak, pine and walnut. Oak and pine are good for soundproofing and oak in particular can be very attractive. All these materials are usually very reasonably priced.
Internal doors can also contain glazed panels which are ideal for moving between living areas and separating hallways from main living areas. The main advantage of glazed panel doors is that they allow light to travel around the house which saves on lighting and therefore helps to cut electricity bills.
Internal doors can be obtained from a variety of suppliers. Jewson for example offer interior doors that are made from oak, shaker, pine, various hardwoods and veneered and paint grade doors. Their veneer and moulded doors are thermally efficient which is essential for building regulations. They also offer a comprehensive guarantee and can offer doors with flush or moulded panel faces. Other popular suppliers include Wickes DIY and Howdens Joinery Co., who offer a wide range of internal doors.
An option for period homes would be to consider the use of recycled doors from a salvage centre. These doors often have more character than modern doors, but you will need to check that the joints are in good condition.
