Methods of decorative finishing of interior doors
The final cost depends on a way of decoration, so if you break your head over how to choose interior doors at affordable cost, take it step carefully.
According to the method of decoration doors are divided into:
Veneer is a decorative coating which can be natural, reconstructed or of deciduous fast-growing species. Technology is as follows: thin slices of wood are attached to a door leaf by means of hot pressing and special adhesive. Then a surface is lacquered which increases environmental resistance of a finished construction.
The first is cheaper but also quality in this case is significantly lower. Undoubtedly, the coating fades beautiful, but quickly under the influence of sunlight. The second allows getting a high-quality synthetic veneer. Polymeric film is resistant to abrasion, ultraviolet, cracks and scratches, it is easy to clean. The cost of laminate is higher.
Interior doors are painted with tinted antiseptics that not only decorate a surface “wood grain”, but also protect from direct sunlight and fungosity.
Tinted door coating is not toxic and dries quickly.
Also, stain, alkyd, oil paints, water-based dyeliquors may be used for coloring.
