With so many options for wood species, deciding which one to use for your door can be a difficult task. Different woods provide different characteristics. Using a less common wood species is a great way to add style to your home. Here is a breakdown of the different options available.
This wood is one of the most common and widely used species. Douglas Fir is generally used in construction but has qualities that make it beneficial for a door, such as its strength. The light color and straight grains easily take all paints and stains.
