6 panel interior doors is the most common door type on the market. They are light and can be very elegant in appearance. One of the deficiencies of hollow core types is that they are not soundproof. Noise will filter through the hollow core easily. This hollow core is present in many types of wood veneer, and can be stained to match existing or painted wood.
6 panel interior doors are more than just a hollow core but less of a sturdy door. Solid core doors generally have a veneer exterior as well. They are a bit more work to install and much heavier. They are also more sound proof then the core hollow. Solid doors are also heavy and even more expensive. They come in all wood varieties and can be dyed, varnished or painted.
Some 6 panel interior doors start trimmed. It saves time, energy and money. If the door you selected is not trimmed, you may want it to buy a casing for it and pre-trim it first before installing. This makes installation quicker and easier. Before buying this door, you need to make some decisions. You have to choose which way to swing. Most people make this decision with where the lights are located. When the swing is opposite to the lamp it will make it difficult to turn on the lights.
