By the way the doors are opened, the interior doors can be divided into:

  • Sliding doors (their other name is compartment doors).
  • Folding (“book”, “accordion”).

Door construction

By design, interior doors are divided into several types. There are three types of doors – panel, paneled and massive, each of which has its own pros and cons.

Panel door.The first type is characterized by the presence of a shield in the door structure. The interior panel door consists of a board, bars and a frame. The strength and durability of the door depends on the quality of the shield. The shield, in turn, is divided into solid and frame. In panel doors, chipboard, “cardboard honeycomb” or a combination of materials can be used to fill the voids between the panels. This or that material can affect the price of the door, its soundproofing, reliability and durability..

Paneled door

Paneled door.This is a structure with a frame of main and intermediate bars, as well as panels (small boards) that form the space between the bars. The more intermediate bars, the stronger the door.

Massive door.It is a door leaf made entirely of solid wood panel. In addition, one more type of massive door can be distinguished – this is an interior door made of glued solid wood. Glued wood is understood to mean layers of wood that are fitted to each other and have different directions. This approach to the manufacture of wood practically negates the deformation of the door..

Massive door

For both types of solid wood doors, the following species are used: beech, oak, mahogany, ash, pine and others. The most popular and, at the same time, reliable interior doors are ash and oak. Door leaves from other types of wood also have their own characteristics..


According to the material of manufacture, doors are divided into the following types:

  • Aluminum. Such doors have good heat and sound insulation properties, do not emit any substances harmful to humans. They also lack heavy metal impurities..
  • Wooden. Solid wood doors are durable and costly.
  • Glass. They are made of tempered glass, which is not capable of injuring a person..
  • Plastic (PVC doors). Easily deformable, fire resistant.
  • Laminated. The advantages of laminated doors include their price and lightness..
  • Combined doors are doors for the manufacture of which various compositions of materials are used (different types of wood, MDF, Veneer, etc.).

In conclusion, we can say that an interior door, thanks to thousands of modifications with different sizes, weights, types and colors, always becomes a full participant in the design ensemble, so its choice should be taken seriously.
