When French doors were first created in France back in the 17th century, they were often created using heavyweight iron. These days French doors can be made from a wide variety of materials from aluminium to UPV and wood. When it comes to internal French doors, oak is an incredibly popular choice for homeowners. The wood itself is naturally hard-wearing and has a gorgeous natural finish. It can easily be stained, or primed and painted to suit the aesthetic of your home, and is more than capable of withstanding punishing day-to-day use.
The natural strength of oak means that it is a material which naturally lends itself to the various designs and configurations available in the French door style.
For those considering installing internal French doors in high-traffic areas of the home, engineered oak is also worth considering. Slightly less expensive than its solid counterpart, engineered oak offers additional peace of mind when it comes to durability, insulation and noise shielding. Engineered wood is treated to be more sustainable than solid oak, but the difference is unnoticeable. Engineered oak doors use slices of real oak which are places on either side of thinner sheets of wood that make up the bulk of the construction, essentially acting as a skin. This means you get the same high-quality oak finish but for a fraction of the price.
