The Benefits Of Internal Oak Doors
Dec 03, 2014
Oak. It’s the best there is. Why? Because it’s beautiful! But much more than that, it’s a solid solution to your interior door needs. Let me tell you why.
Interior doors are needed for three basic functions. To stop draughts, to stop unwanted noise and for privacy.
The latter is a simple one. If you want privacy then getting solid oak doors will mean absolute privacy! Guaranteed! Though, if privacy isn’t the issue then oak internal french doors are an excellent addition allowing light to pass through and creating a greater sense of space.
However, it’s in the other two categories that interior oak doors excel. As a hardwood, oak is particularly difficult to work with because of how strong it is when dry. However, being an incredibly strong timber, it is heavy duty and long lasting - perfect for interior doors which are slammed and hit all the time.
Draught Proof Oak Doors
It also means that when they are manufactured they are fit flush into their frame. Because they are resistant to damage over time, they won’t at any point no longer fit into their frames thereby ensuring that they are no unwanted cold draughts sneaking into your living room!
Unlike cheap wooden doors, which will chip easily and often warp with changes of moisture in the air, internal oak doors will keep their shape, never warp or get stuck meaning that you will never get cold feet on the sofa!
This will not only keep you warm but keep the bills down too.
Noise Proof Internal Oak Doors
The title kind of gives it away already… But oak being a solid hardwood makes it an excellent choice when you want a door that will keep the noise from one room out of the other. Perfect if you’ve got a children’s den attached to your living room or to keep the study quiet.
Internal oak doors bring a sense of style inside - they are reassuringly sturdy, handsome doors which compliment any design aesthetic. That’s as well as the additional benefits of noise reduction and thermal insulation.
