What is the optimal size interior door? 90 or 100 cm/ 211 cm?
Hello, the planning for our house is well underway and I am in the process of sizing interior doors.
I am fluctuating between. 90 or 100 cm / 211 cm interior doors. We have a 265 stroke margin.
The extra cost for wide doors is minimal. In fact, I see only pluses to wide doors, except that they sometimes look like hospital doors:-(
Has anyone decided to do this and regretted it?
We have 1m in the utility room and living room, the rest I think is 83cm.
The 1m doors look generous when open – that's what I like about the living room doors. They can also be used to carry drawers, laundry baskets and chairs.
But, of course, they look pretty massive when closed. Large doors also require a lot of space to open.
If you don't have hands-on experience, take the 90.
We have 100 x 225 cm doors throughout the house. Only the narrower ones are installed for the guest bathroom and stove appliances. The room height increases from 250 cm to 340 cm.
If the proportions and room plan are correct, everything will be fine.
We settled on 90cm, also because it would have been quite difficult from a space-technical standpoint with one door or the other. So far, I don't miss it.
It all depends on what you're hoping for. For me, 1m wide doors only make sense if the rest of the room is also big enough. A large door that I can easily drive a wheelchair/wheelchair through doesn't make sense if I can't turn around in a 2m² toilet.
With a room height of 2.50m, we also used a door height of 211cm. If I were you, I would consider that taller doors might look better. However, price should also play a role. If I understood correctly at the time, many manufacturers' standard sizes end at 211 cm, and anything higher often costs disproportionately more.
