Solid wood doors have been used in old and expensive buildings for centuries, and today, buying a solid door in Oak, Maple, Walnut or Beech - can be seen as a long term investment for you home. If you’re looking to enhance your interior or create a lasting impression, then oak doors could add a sense of value and appeal for your home. They are unique – a living material with its own characteristics - and the wood will age and mature with the property giving the room its own pleasant mood.
When compared to buying a standard off the shelf door, a solid oak door is the right choice for durability, look, uniqueness and investment. With new innovative styles available – contemporary or traditional – there’s something for everyone.
