Q: How much money should I spend on a new door?
The door to my bedroom has seen better days and it is time for me to buy a new one. How much money should I expect to pay for a new door? Any suggestions for good types of doors?
For an interior door, the cost will depend greatly on the quality of the door. If price is your priority, a simple flush wood door will do the job, and a hollow core door can be found at your local builder's supply store for around $60. If you need something that is sound-proof, or something that can handle moisture (for example, if it separates the bed and bathroom), you will want a solid-core flush door or an MDF stile-and-rail door. These run around $100 each for a standard 36x80-in door.
If appearance is your priority, there are myriad styles to choose from. A door with decorative inserts may cost you over $500, unless you purchase a do-it-yourself Doorlite Kit from CrestviewDoors.com. You can turn a $60 hollow core door into a beautiful modern interior door for under $300!
Save your pennies for installation. Nothing is more annoying than a door that sticks or won't latch due to improper installation, and a professional installer will get the job done quickly with results that last the length of your stay in your home.
