Choosing the doors for your home can typically be one of the last things that is considered when overseeing a project. However, the choices you make during this process will set the stage for future interior design and styling choices for years to come. Here are five reasons why solid core interior doors are a perfect choice for your current or future home.

Look and Feel 

Interior doors are a major component of the styling of a home. Whether you are going for a rustic, modern, contemporary, or even a bohemian look, the doors you select will make or break the look. Solid core interior doors come in just about any finish you could want to fit the overall style of your home. They are also easily customizable, which makes them perfect for stain or paint, etching, or other high-quality detailing. There are even options to add vision or frosted glass panels!


Solid core interior doors are filled with wood or composite materials inside of a wood frame.  This provides an extra layer of protection against sounds coming into or leaving a space. With these doors, there will be no more worrying if the people in the room next door can hear you in the bathroom or if you are keeping other people awake when they are trying to sleep.

It’s no wonder that this type of door is the top choice for use in many commercial buildings, schools, and even hospitals!


The filling inside of a solid core door is not only good for helping with the soundproofing of your home, but it can also help with the insulation as well. We all have different temperature needs in our homes. For those living in areas of extreme heat or cold, keeping the house cool or warm is of the utmost importance. In other circumstances, keeping specific rooms of the house colder or warmer than others may be important. For either of these needs, solid core interior doors should be considered as an option.


Solid core doors are known to be some of the safest you can have in a home for two main reasons. First, a solid core door is extremely hardy and durable and can take a beating if necessary. A solid core door is going to be a challenge for a potential burglar who is trying to break into a home. Hollow core doors, on the other hand, won’t present much of a challenge. Solid core interior doors can also be fire rated, which will provide more protection for your family if a fire does occur in your home.


Possibly the biggest benefit to choosing solid core doors for your home is the durability and longevity of the product. The materials these doors are manufactured from means they are not easily susceptible to rot or decay and will require little to no maintenance. Solid core doors can be used in laundry rooms, as pocket doors and closet doors, and are perfect for painting. With minimal care, these doors can last a lifetime.
