Thinking about buying a new internal door? Oak is the obvious choice, and a popular one for many of our customers here at Savoy Timber. But if you want something a little different, pine is a brilliant alternative. This week at Savoy Timber, we’re looking at just a couple of the crucial advantages they have to offer.
Whenever we speak to a customer who’s considering pine internal doors for their home, the aesthetics are almost always the very first aspect they mention. If you want a bright, airy feel for your home, pine internal doors are an ideal choice. Their design is simple but attractive, and its natural grain gives it a particularly authentic appeal. Most customers prefer to keep staining to a minimum, allowing the natural grain of the wood to shine through. This aesthetic looks especially great under plenty of natural light, but some customers use pine doors strategically too, in order to brighten up smaller or darker rooms (which perhaps don’t have quite as much natural light to go around).
The distinctive style of pine doors mean they fit equally well into both traditional and contemporary interiors. The natural texture of the wood makes the typical pine door an excellent match for a rustic country interior, while its cheerful tone helps it to blend seamlessly into a contemporary aesthetic. We’ve already touched upon the qualities that enhance its appearance under both natural and artificial light, and what’s more, right here at Savoy Timber we’ve got glazed variants like the Internal Clear Pine Rio with Crystal Rose Glass Door, which can inject any interior with an upbeat feel while letting in plenty of natural light too. You get the best of both worlds!
Don’t mistake the pine door’s airy feel for fragility! It’s just as durable as its peers, able to withstand extensive wear and tear over a number of years. We understand that an internal door is regularly subject to quite a lot of punishment, especially in a family home. For example, small children or pets sometimes have an unfortunate tendency to occasionally sprint into them at full speed. Even if it’s an all-adult house, all it takes is for one window to be left open and for the wind to catch it, slamming it into its frame. When you buy a pine internal door, you can be sure of a purchase that will stand the test of time for years to come.
Here at Savoy Timber, we’ve got a broad range of pine internal doors to suit all tastes. We find a particular customer favourite is our 6 Panel Knotty Pine Door, but you’ll probably find your own! Don’t forget, you can always see what we’ve got in store in any one of our three superstores across the North West – in Preston, Blackpool or Wigan. Pop on by, and ask any one of our friendly members of staff to show you round – we’re always happy to see you!
