We all know that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, but there are not many people who would argue about the stunning good looks of most oak interior doors. This is because the wood displays its lovely graininess and gorgeous colors while also providing a long-wearing and durable finish.
There are all kinds of interior oak doors, however, and even when it is a simple, single modern door made from this attractive wood, it makes a distinctive statement. This is the main reason to consider using oak interior doors when planning a remodel or renovation of any interior space.
When shopping for the doors it is going to be essential that you ensure the quality of the product you are acquiring. For example, there are some manufacturers who advertise their doors as all-natural oak, but this is describing only the laminate or veneer that coats the surface. In order for a oak door to be worth the purchase price and to also deliver long wear and service, it is best that it be solid wood finished with a veneer of oak. This is a perfect combination that is sure to stand up to years of service.
Additionally, an oak door is going to be significantly heavy, and this means that it is a very wise idea to purchase doors that are prehung and prefinished in the stain or treatment desired. Basically, this will allow the homeowner or apartment dweller to measure the pre-existing door, purchase the beautiful oak doors, and install them with very little difficulty or hassle. In fact, most people who have purchased a prehung door complain that it is the installation of the molding that ends up consuming a great deal of time and effort.
An oak door (or even a pair of them) will incorporate a beautiful warmth and naturalness into any space, and can easily serve as a centerpiece for almost any setting.
