Finish Your Interior Doors

Put the Finishing Touches On Your Interior Doors

A door is just a door until you add the special finishing touches to make it your own. Once the unit is installed in the wall, the finishing options become endless. What kind of trim will you use? What style doorknob will look best? What finish should the lockset and hinges be? Let us help you with some of those choices and you will be happy for years to come.

Choosing Hinges

Interior Door hinges are another important item to consider when installing new doors. Once you have chosen your door style, it is the time to give thought to what you will use for door hardware. It is important to order door hinges that will match whatever locksets you plan to use. The standard hinge is usually a light brass (LB3) finish which may or may not help you achieve the style you want. If you are planning on using locksets that are a finish other than brass, like satin nickel, oil rubbed bronze, etc, you will need to specify that the hinge finish is something other than brass.

Handles & Locksets

You’ve taken the time to install new doors, why not finish them off with a new handle or lockset? Interior door hardware can help the door to earn the respect it deserves and add to the beauty and value of your home.

Door hardware is available in a variety of shapes, styles, and finishes. The finish options range from standard brass to oil-rubbed bronze, and many in between. Shapes include tulip, round, bell, levers, handles with latches and many more. Contemporary or classic, there is a knob style that fits your project. For security options they range from a passage set with no lock, to bedroom or privacy that can be locked from the inside, and versions that have a key.

When purchasing door hardware keep in mind the other finishes in your home and how the hardware should operate. If the door is simply to keep a closet closed, a non-locking knob may be appropriate.

With thousands of hardware options available, Curtis Lumber can provide you with the unique finishing touch to your home.

Interior Trim

Interior trim is a valuable accent to any room. Adding or replacing interior trim is a great way to draw attention to your home, accent the colors in the room, and give your home a look that is unique to you and your personality. Interior trim comes in a variety of materials, from clear or primed wood to MDF.

Depending on the style of your home and how the trim will be used, there is a trim that is best suited for your application. In general, your casing should match the style of your baseboards and crown (ceiling) trim. For example, Colonial base & crown would be complemented by Colonial casing.

Other Features

Other architectural features may be added to your doors to give a special touch. Sidelights and Transoms are glass panels that are mounted next to or above the main operating door to allow more light to pass from room to room. They are typically used indoors to add architectural details and create the appearance of taller doors in large rooms.

No matter the trim option you choose, your local Curtis Lumber has hundreds of hardware options and mouldings available to finish your new interior doors off right! Our friendly salespeople will help walk you through the selection process.
