What are interior doors?

Interior doors refer to the doors that don’t go to the outside. These can be to a bedroom, bathroom, closet, pantry, or others. There are many choices when it comes to function, style, and noise insulation, so think about how the space is going to be used before buying your interior doors. If you have any questions, one of the experts at Maui Windows & Doors would be happy to talk you through our wide selection.

What types of interior doors are available?

There are pros and cons to each type of interior door. The typical and traditional hinged door can be a simple solution. You can order them flush (totally flat) or with panels for a more stylish solution. We only carry doors Hawaii residents will love!

Pocket doors are great for saving space, since the door completely disappears into the wall, meaning they don’t swing in or out.

Sliding doors are usually the number one choice for closets for ease of use, space-saving, and being able to open either side at a time.

Bypass doors, like sliding doors are a popular choice for closets. They can slide in either direction, letting either side end on the left or right. You can get mirror bypass doors to expand the look of your room and check out your outfits from your closet.

Folding doors are another good space saver. The 2-paneled doors fold in the middle and slide to the sides to completely open up an area.

Wall mount barn doors are a big trend lately. A track is hung above the door frame and the door slides against the wall when not in use. People typically do a distressed paint job on these doors for a rustic feel.

What materials are interior doors made from?

Interior doors are usually made from many different types of wood, but if you want to put a twist on your wood door, there are glass and resin inserts, custom wood choices, metal, or even leather inserts. A good choice for tropical climates is medium-density fiberboard (MDF), which is less likely to swell or change with the weather.

What are the standard sizes for interior doors?

Interior doors are usually 6’ 8” tall, 24”-36” wide, and 1 3/8” thick. Of course, custom options are available, and we’ll make sure that one of our specialists will get the perfect doors to fit your home, your style, and your doorway.
