What Makes Panel Doors Different From Flush Doors?

People are swarming to furniture stores and interior designers to find unique doors for their homes and offices. This is because the decor trends of this year and the previous year were heavily emphatic on the relevance of doors in elevating the style quotient of homes. For those of you who do not wish to seek professional help, understanding the difference between panel doors and flush doors is the primary step towards discovering the product that you need.


Panel Doors

These doors are made from parts of solid wood which are carved into different shapes and sizes to make a predetermined design. It comprises of vertical stiles and horizontal rails which are joined in such a way as to accommodate panels within them to create the necessary design. Apart from wooden panels, these doors can also incorporate, steel, fibreglass, etc. to meet customer aspirations and desires. These doors mostly have an on-site manufacturing process. Because of the design possibilities, they are quite popular among designers and home owners. CenturyDoors offer a range of design options including oval, 2-panel, 3-panel, 4-panel, and 6-panel doors. The durability of these doors depend upon the quality of the solid wood used.

Flush Doors

Flush doors are characterised by flat surfaces on either sides which are usually made of plywood. The plywood is bound to a strong timber framework; the interstice within is packed with compact solid wood fillers. The facing surfaces are then affixed with beautiful wood veneers or laminates as surfaces to give the desired finishing and look. The manufacturing process is completed in factories necessitating accuracy in dimensions as alteration is difficult after production. They are a lightweight and eco-friendly alternative to solid wooden doors. The elegance and texture of natural solid wood including that of exotic hardwood varieties can be obtained at a fraction of the former’s price. This is because, veneers are nothing but thin slices of solid wood which is used only as a surface material. Surfacing can also be done with laminates which are available in an extensive range of colours and designs at CenturyDoors. Flush doors would be the go to option for those who seek doors in bold colours and designs to complement the interior decor.


Both panel doors and flush doors have their respective benefits, and hence choose the one that serves your purpose, for best results.
