House With Smooth Flush Doors
Doors have a wide appeal and there are all sorts of interesting things that can be done with them. Flush doors are essentially what they sound like; they are indeed flush. In fact, they are built to be completely smooth. They can be very beautiful and are most commonly found indoors. The typical flush doors are manufactured by using two sections of plywood that are attached to each side of frames. While the interior of the door is hollow, it is not unusual for some sort of support to be built into the frame, such as a honeycomb support system. The plywood can be finished to accentuate the wood grain or covered with paint. Once the door construction is completed, the finish is treated with a sealant to protect the color or the stain from any type of damage. It is also possible to construct a flush door using a solid core piece that is augmented with some type of laminate or plywood on each side. As with the hollow door design, the solid model is then painted or stained, then treated to a sealant. While heavier than the hollow versions, the solid flush door is often a better option when installing a flush sliding door at a passage between two rooms.
Flush door hardware is usually kept very simple. If the doors are intended for mounting on tracks, then the hardware will be recessed, making it possible for the doors to pass over one another. This design is common when the doors are used for accessing a closet. Handles for these doors may be used when the door is mounted in a position to swing back and forth, rather than glide along on tracks.
