What are the benefits of interior door replacement?
This blog will outline each benefit for upgrading interior doors.
Most people understand when they buy a house they are going to want to carry out various upgrades over the years to make the home reflect their personal design style and needs.
Replacing internal doors not only changes the design feeling of your house but also provides practical advantages to how you live in the house on a daily basis.
The right replacement interior door can do so much for a room in your home so it’s important to choose wisely.
Benefits of Interior Door Replacement
#1 Design Consistency
In some houses, especially older homes which may have already been remodelled over the years, the interior doors don’t match.
It may be that a previous owner planned to change all the doors to a new style over time but never finished the new construction project, or a broken door had to be replaced, or the owner simply preferred an eclectic design with different themes in each room.
The doors don’t have to be an exact match to be consistent, the new casings will bring them all together.
For example If you want French doors leading to the dining room, a pocket door between the living room and kitchen, and either bi-fold or sliding closet doors, the casings can give the appearance to match.
#2 Personalised Style and Themes
New interior doors can customise a theme in your house.
Depending on your personal style and your home’s style, there are various options to add your own touch.
Some people prefer a plain style with fairly generic doors and casings, while others like a simple rustic cabin theme, a regal and elegant formal setting, or the clean lines of industrial design.
Taking your personal style into account guarantees you will be happy with the end result and choose the best modern doors for your home.
#3 Energy Efficiency
Homeowners often overlook how new doors can add energy efficiency to the home in two ways.
The first is that using insulated or solid doors form a tight seal with the floor.
These doors can be used to seal off rooms which aren’t used regularly.
These are ideal for guest rooms or basements which are only used when you entertain company.
For more efficiency, the heating and air conditioning vents can be closed and sealed off from the rest of the house when not in use so you’re only heating and cooling the areas you actively use.
Another means of energy efficiency is to leave a two to three inch gap between the bottom of the door and the floor for bedrooms and bathrooms.
The gap doesn’t take away the needed privacy when the door is closed, but allows airflow so your HVAC system can perform efficiently.
The system is gaining popularity among architects and designers as an environmentally friendly energy solution when used in conjunction with other energy saving features in the building.
#4 Privacy and Security
For some rooms, using the bottom gap system may not serve your needs.
Solid interior doors are commonly used on bedrooms and bathrooms.
Solid interior doors can also add both privacy and security by holding a more substantial lock. Such a concept is especially important if you have roommates, but can also help if you have valuables or collections you don’t want your children and their friends to get into.
#5 Increased Home Value
Does replacing interior doors add value?
To keep it short and sweet, yes.
Interior door replacement can definitely increase the value of your home.
How much value is added depends on specific factors of your personal remodelling project.
However, new doors for your house generally always provide an aesthetically modern look to the interior of your home, as well as complete functionality.
These two factors can play a huge role in a home’s value. If you’re looking at how to increase home value without breaking the bank, replacing interior doors is right for you.
