Doors and plinth
No renovation, whether an apartment or an office, is complete without the replacement of interior doors. There are many options on the market now, but in order to make the right choice, you need to know the criteria for assessing quality.
Interior doors not only visually divide the rooms, but provide sound insulation, reduce the number of drafts, allow privacy. The rule of good taste is the same design of all doors in the apartment and, of course, a combination with the overall style.
The doors can be made entirely of solid wood or board material (MDF, particleboard), with glass inserts or entirely of glass.
By type of opening the door is divided into several categories. The most popular and budget are single-leaf swing doors. Before installing such a door, you should carefully consider the most convenient way to open (external or internal, left or right), as well as take into account the objects that will stand next to it, to avoid damage. Interior sills can be chosen in the color of the door leaf or floor.
Sliding doors are ideal if you want to save space in the apartment. They can be one-, two- and four-leaf. The disadvantages of such doors include the high cost + payment to the specialist for installation, noise when moving the door and reduced sound and heat insulation.
The next type of door opening is a pendulum. Such doors are convenient to open when hands are occupied, therefore they are often established in shops, shopping centers. Such doors do not have a door box, which facilitates installation, but has a negative effect on heat and sound insulation. The lower axis of the mechanism, which bears the main load of the door leaf, can withstand a lot of weight. With the help of the upper axial canopy you can adjust the closing speed of the canvas. Pendulum doors are demanding to space, so it is rational to put them in large and / or spacious rooms.
