Factors to Keep in Mind While Choosing an Interior Decorative Door - CenturyPly

A beautiful interior door can often act as a subtle accessory that can add character to your home’s overall decor & ambiance. Like some other parts of the home, for instance trim or moulding, these doors may go unnoticed. But if given the chance, they can add a dramatic & eye-catching effect on the look of the room. 

Interior doors are a vital part of every house and you should do some thorough research before choosing one. Whether you are building a new home, redesigning your current home or just looking to change up the look of a particular area in the house, selecting a new interior door is a necessary step. Style, materials, soundproofing and door swing are just some of the points to consider when sorting through the endless options for interior doors.

If you are overwhelmed with the thought of selecting the right interior door for your home, you have come to the right place. There are many factors that come into play but when you narrow them down a bit, it is much less overwhelming. Read on to know what factors to keep in mind while choosing a decorative interior door.

The style of the door can make a big difference to your home’s overall ambiance. You should feel free to mix and match a little but remember not to go overboard. Afterall, the goal is to maintain a certain flow throughout the house. A few questions to ask before choosing a style of the door are:

      What room is it for?

      What style is the home?

      How tall are the ceilings?

      What material is the flooring?

Be sure to pay attention to the overall size and feel of a room. A massive and ornate door may overwhelm tiny rooms, making them feel smaller instead of bigger. 

Two of the most popular choices are flush doors & panel doors.

Flush doors are perhaps the most simple doors available in the market and their simplicity is what makes them so widely popular. They have a smooth, flat surface and do not have any detailing on them. They may look and feel like a single piece of wood, making it so much easier to match them to the overall decor of the house. In case you want to add more beauty to their simple, charming looks, choose a veneered flush door. Veneers are by themselves, exquisite to look at. Add them to your interior flush doors and see them shine with new vigour.

By comparison, panel doors offer more interest, appeal, and detail. They have different sections that are divided to add dimension to the door. More commonly, panel doors have a frame with panels separately built onto them. These panels, whether plywood, solid wood or glass, may run vertically or horizontally.

When it comes to choosing the door swing, you have to keep your comfort in mind. The choice is between a right-hand or a left-hand door swing. This will determine where the hinges and handles are, and which way the door swings when it opens and closes. Do you want it to swing into the room or out into the next room. Typically if it is a bedroom, the door will swing into the room. If it is a main space like a family room, the door would swing in. Think of how you would typically walk into that particular room and what feels most comfortable to you. 


The material with which your door is made of is a big determinant of how strong, durable & resilient your door will be. You can take your pick from solid wood, MDF, fiber cement, glass or hollow core doors. CenturyDoors have a beautiful collection of doors for you, where you will find something for everyone. Our doors are not only waterproof, slam proof, swell proof, borer & termite proof but have been manufactured with the choicest raw materials to give you safe, sturdy & highly secure doors. Make sure to pick one that suits your personality.


How you frame the doors is important. Framing a door incorrectly can quickly detract from the value of a beautiful and expensive door. Using cheap framing materials or construction shortcuts can often lead to damage on the door, and can cost more in the long run. What door frame you pick can determine the balance you need to strike-- for instance, if you have an ornate interior door, pick a simple door frame and vice versa.
