Every house needs doors and if you are building or renovating you will inevitably need to go through the moment of choosing the doors. And in today's post let's talk about a kind of door that is timeless and very popular: the wooden doors. Yeah, we'll tell you all about them.
The wooden door is one of the favorites in Brazilian homes and can be used both inside and outside the house. And one of the main reasons for this popularity is its high strength and durability. But not only that. The wooden door has a very beautiful look, collaborating with the architectural design of the house and making it also cozy and inviting.
In addition to these features, there are other aspects that involve a wooden door and that are important in helping you to define the type of wooden door that best fits the needs of your home. Check out the following topics:
Types of wood
Wooden doors should be chosen, in principle, according to where they will be installed. There are more suitable woods for indoor areas, while others fit better in outdoor environments. See the ideal type for each of the following environments:
Wooden door for internal environment
Inside the house the wooden door will have no direct contact with the rain and the sun. Therefore, wood need not be so sturdy. Another feature of the internal wooden doors is that they are hollow inside, just to cheapen the cost.
The most recommended wooden doors for internal use are those made of mahogany, cherry, eucalyptus, pine and pink cedar. Mahogany, which is dark red in color, is very resistant to termites, while pine and eucalyptus are cheaper.
Wooden door to external area
Wooden doors for outdoor use, usually entrance doors and balconies, need to be more resilient to the weather, especially rain and humidity.
In this case, the best options are the doors of ipê, teak, walnut and peroba. External wood doors are usually more expensive compared to internal doors because they are massive and made from better quality wood.
However, regardless of whether the door will be used inside or outside the home, it is extremely important to treat it properly with products that protect it from pests, such as termites, and, of course, to make the waterproofing with varnish, guaranteeing protection against water and lightning solar power.
Wooden door models
After choosing the most appropriate type of wood for your home, it is time to define the model that best suits your home style. We list below the most used ones to choose from:
Wooden door of a sheet
Wooden doors with only one sheet are the most traditional and used in construction. They are fixed to a stop and have a hinged opening system. The single-leaf wood doors have varying sizes ready to sell, but can also be tailor-made.
You can choose to use a single-leaf wood door for indoor and outdoor, hollow or massive environments.
Wooden door two leaves
The two-leaf wooden door has the same door opening system as a single leaf, with the difference of having an extra leaf. However, to use this type of door requires a larger space, since it occupies a larger space.
Wooden sliding door
Sliding door models are suitable for those with limited space. They run along a rail embedded within the wall itself and can be of two forms: with a fixed sheet and a movable sheet or two movable sheets.
Pivoting wooden door
The pivoting wooden doors are modern and bold. They have an opening system completely different from the others, when they were moved by a central axis controlled by a pivot instead of a conventional hinge. However, if you opt for a pivoting door, be aware that you will need to shell out some money, as this type of door is usually much more expensive.
Folding wood door
The folding doors also have wooden versions, although the most common ones are made of PVC. This type of door is great for indoor environments, especially when there is too little space in the room. This type of door is also widely used in large spans, such as balconies or to demarcate an environment of the other.
Wooden door shrimp
Like the folding door, the shrimp door is suitable for indoor use in space-limited environments, especially bathrooms and closets.
Wooden door bang bang
The wooden bang bang door is the one we see in the faroreste films. They are more decorative than functional, but they still manage to mark one another's environment, though it does not isolate it completely.
Colors and designs
Wooden doors can be versatile also with regard to colors and designs. You can choose to leave the wood in natural shade using a clear lacquer or even paint it in darker shades using the other varnish color options.
Another way to color the wooden door is by using synthetic enamel. The variety of colors in this case is immense and you can choose from the one that most matches the style of your home.
In addition to the colors, there is also the option of choosing notched doors with geometric designs. However, preferably to use the notched doors in outside areas and at the entrance of the house. Already indoors, prefer those that have only one line or more discreet design, so you do not overload the environment with several ports designed.
