Wooden doors offer a timeless look inside any home. Whether looking for standard doors or larger glass framed doorsets, the great look offered by real wood is a popular choice. However, many looking for internal doors will opt for an engineered wood door, whether hollow or solid, which can offer comparable looks at a drastically cheaper price.

What Are Internal Wooden Doors Made From?

The vast majority of internal wooden doors will actually be made from engineered wood with a veneer of real wood on the exterior. There will be two designs to choose from when shopping for internal doors, solid and hollow core.

  • Hollow Core Doors: These doors will be built around a solid frame, with thin veneers of authentic wood on each side. The central void of the door will be filled with cardboard in a honeycomb shape. Hollow core engineered wood doors will be light and simple to install but will lack durability, and will offer low levels of both acoustic and thermal insulation. These are the cheapest options available.
  • Solid Core Doors: These doors feature a similar framing and facing, but will have a solid core of engineered wood, giving them a far higher level of strength and durability. They also offer superior levels of thermal and acoustic insulation. The downsides are their higher weight making them more difficult to install and the larger price tag they will be sold at.

In most cases when looking for internal doors, these will be the only options available, with solid wood doors relegated to more sturdy external uses. When sold, solid wood doors will come at a much higher cost. As the look of an oak veneer door is extremely close to the authentic thing, most people will choose an engineered option over a real internal oak door.

Interior Wooden Door Designs

When buying interior doors, choosing a look that fits with your room and other decorative elements is important. Internal wooden doors are produced in a wide range of designs, from standard-width entrance doors to larger doors designed to create attractive movable borders between rooms.

Fire Doors

Most standard internal fire doors will be made from wood, certified for either 30 or 60 minutes of fire resistance (they will be designated as FD30 or FD60 to show this). Fire doors will be made from solid wood, with all aspects of the door set certified for fire resistance (such as door frames, handles, hinges, self-closers etc). 

Fire doors are a legal requirement inside many commercial and domestic buildings, with the strength determined by an expert assessment of the property. You can buy fire doors to suit a range of building looks, with many of them offered pre-finished, ready for professional installation.

Bifold Doors

Internal wooden bifold doors can actually describe two different types of doors. Single bifold doors are designed to be hung within standard door frames (usually around 1981mm x 762mm though this will vary). They have a hinge down the vertical centre, meaning that they can be opened with a far narrower radius than a solid door. This greatly benefits those with small internal spaces, allowing more of a floor to be used.

Larger bifold doors are the more famous of the two designs, commonly used as patio doors on the external walls of a house. However, this design is also available for communal spaces within a building. Built from several panels connected on a track, bifold doors will easily fold to one or two sides, compressing against each other and creating a larger space that combines two rooms. 

These designs are typically made from wood, with either large panels of glass or smaller panels on the top half helping light to move through a building. They will be used for bridging communal rooms, such as living rooms, dining rooms, or kitchens.

Sliding Doors

Sliding doors can be used for similar purposes as larger bifold doors, though they will only be available as large glass doors with wooden framing. These can make for a fantastic internal wooden door between a lounge and a conservatory, allowing huge amounts of natural light into a building.

French Doors

French doors are double doors with built-in glass panels. Wooden French doors are a popular interior choice, as they can be opened to join two spaces while allowing light to move through a building.
