Lets talk prehung solid core interior doors today! Until we installed solid core interior doors in our basement remodel a couple years ago, I had no idea the features and benefits of solid core interior doors. The modern prehung interior door above is in the basement where we created a closet under the stairs. Jim ended up adding on a bump out addition (where the brown built in bookcase/shelving is below) providing a walk in closet for the new owners.
The bedroom looks pretty amazing compared to the previous space right! The old doors that we removed were actually hollow core and I think original from when the house was built in the 1960’s.
Personally, I think the 2 panel solid core sliding doors are visually appealing and look better than bifolds. Don’t get me wrong, bifolds provide a purpose when you are tight on space and need a larger opening in a closet area but for this project, the sliding door option was the best bet.
Pre hung doors are easy to install and worth the extra money. Upgrading your interior and exterior doors will not only provide a new modern feel but will also add value to your home depending on the scope of your project. As you can see the below, the hallway looks amazing with all new 2 panel solid core interior doors by Masonite. Personally, I think these are the best solid core interior doors and at a great price point.
We have several Masonite solid core interior doors and the fact that they provide a soundproofing element a room and durability are two of my favorite features. Here is a picture of the hallway living room area before the renovation started.
The previous owner left their furniture so I snapped these pictures literally the day after she moved out. We originally planned to install a hinged door but opted for the sliding track instead.
