Choosing the best doors

Posted in: Ideas and Advice
26 February 2021

Doors are an integral element in interior design and can add a dash of style to an exterior façade.  It has been said that doors are the punctuation marks of a room and, whether or not you subscribe to that, their function and look is a fundamental piece of the jigsaw in your build or home.  The finish and design of a door can simply upgrade a room bringing a quality feel throughout a new project or convey a splash of sophistication to a re-design.  Whatever your needs and whatever your dreams are for your room or build, Timberworld works with the nationally acclaimed joinery firm XL Design so you can choose from the best.

In Their Wood We Trust

National firms XL Design and LPD Doors are in tune with our sustainability values.  As members of FSC.org, the Forest Stewardship Council, PEFC the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification and by adhering to the Soil Association Woodmark values, you can be reassured that the wood they use is sustainably sourced with the environment front of mind. 

The Whole Kit and Caboodle

Whether you’re a novice diy-er, or a builder in the trade, our range of doors at Timberworld give you a breadth of choice.  Doors are not standard sizes in the UK so let us help you get it right.  Architraves, door linings, skirtings and door furniture are all available from Timberworld, with pre-finishing colours and stains on offer, as well as our finishing kit to give you everything you’d need for an exterior door

French or Freefold? What’s Hot


Gone are the days when a door was standard, the handle turned, it opened.  You might think a standard door will do the job and it may well do (we do simple and classic too), but look again and keep your options open. Not only is there a choice of wood, finish and design at Timberworld, but it may be worth considering a pocket door – a brilliant space-saver for tricky spaces or just for a superb contemporary look.  French or freefold doors are superb for giving rooms focus and letting the outside in.  XL Design’s Easi-frame, Easi-Glide or Easi-Slide are currently popular with interior designers or the LPD NUVU sliding folding doors and the LPD ALUVU range (doors with an aluminium core), are an easy and beautiful way to extend your space.  It’s also worth checking out Rebated doors or the clever Pairing system …. a lesson in just how doors can really punctuate a room!
