Changing the appearance of your internal doors can transform the look of any home. The right door can add light and character, giving your home an instant transformation.
In this week’s article, we will highlight four finishing options to consider when refreshing your internal doors
1. Add a splash of colour
Adding a splash of paint to your door is a great cost-effective way of adding a new lease of life to your home.
Colour plays a fundamental part in the formation of design. It can enhance, promote, and communicate intended meaning with its presence. Colours can not only impact the atmosphere of the room but also evoke emotion.
For a classic and timeless approach, a neutral palette of white and cream can be used to add brightness to the room. To make a statement, choose a bright colour for vibrancy and character!
To add your own custom colour to your doors, we would recommend using a unfinished Paint Grade Door. The beauty of a paint grade door is the transformation they can endure. With a simple coat of paint, they can be customised to your desire, providing a blank canvas for you to become the artist to your own beautiful creation.
Our Primed Doors also known by the industry as ‘paint-ready’ which are paper faced as standard. Primed doors arrive with a base coat of primer, allowing you to paint them your desired colour without having to sand and prime yourself beforehand.
Another way to add a splash of colour to your home, is through the use of Laminate finished doors.
Laminate offers a versatile finishing solution for all interior doors, thanks to its inherent properties. High Pressure Laminate is one of the most durable decorative surface materials, proving not only an aesthetically pleasing finish but also performance qualities.
Laminate is widely used in all aspects of interior design, often favoured for its low maintenance and practical design. Easy to clean, maintain and hard-wearing, laminate a is great alternative to traditional veneers.
With a variety of laminates to choose from the design possibilities are endless. Customise your door to comply with the latest design and colour scheme.

2. Add a Wood Stain finish
If you have chosen a real wood veneer door, such as American White Oak or Beech, applying a wood stain can have a great impact on the appearance of your internal doors.
Wood stains are used to enhance the appearance of the wood grain, without distorting its natural presence. Providing qualities of durability and protection from damage and the elements of everyday use.

4. Let the light shine through
“Adding natural light to a room can do wonders for your health, have a positive effect on your mood as well as creating a welcoming space for entertaining guests” – Grand Designs Magazine
In a recent survey by Origin, 26% of homeowners said natural light was a ‘must have’. Natural lighting makes a room feel not only brighter, but bigger and more welcoming, too.
Glazed Doors will increase the amount of natural light that floods into the room. Often poorly lit rooms can feel cramped and enclosed. By introducing glazed doors, the flow of light will make your space feel more open and spacious.
There are many styles and designs to choose from, when it comes to glazed panels and doors. Whether you’re looking to create a contemporary or traditional look, we are sure you’ll find your perfect match in our collection.
