Advantages look good price cheap
Pine wooden doors
B&Q has certainly had a lot of my money recently.
The builders have made my rooms look really good but there was something missing .
No privacy in the smallestroomunderthestairs and no way to get to the front door.
We found the doors we felt would complement the look of our home and wow were they cheap 14.99p in the sale so we quickly snaffled 6 of them and took them home.
Looking on their web site this morning the same doors cost £37.99 at least they look identical to the ones we have.
Well stand here with me and look at my pine doors. You can see three from where I am sitting at the computer. The one to the hall at the far end of the room, that’s closed the one that’s behind me to goes into the utility area that’s open then beyond that theres the one to my smallestroomunderthestairs, that’s shut I wont take you in there today.
We have another one of these doors that fills the door opening between the kitchen and the utility area. Can’t see that one from here
We decided matching doors were best. to get some continuity
If storing these doors before fitting keep them flat somewhere dry and out of direct sun or artificial heating to avoid them becoming misshaped. Leave them in the packaging, which is, plastic this will avoid soiling. And spoilingThe pine the doors are made of has a forest stewardship council certificate. The F C S is a non-governmental organisation started in 1993 in response to concerns about deforestation. Woods where timber is harvested for this certificate have to have good forest managing.
The doors are a light coloured pine needing to be treated with paint or a protective stain when they are fitted. As of yet we have not treated them. I think we will just stain them we need to decide on the redecoration of the sitting room and work out which stain to use. The pinewood on these doors has several knots in it they make the wood more interesting. To be honest we are taking a break from diy as it is exhausting and work is hard at the moment. I do not want to put much stress on hubby and make him as ill as he was 4 months ago.These doors were standard size one of them we has to shave a little of the ends to make it fit onto the door opening on our smallestroomunderthestairs
It may appear we have a lot of pine fittings, yes we have but it does not feel overdone the fittings complement each other and do not look a mismatch.
Pine is one of the cheaper woods so we were trying to be economical. Pine is a fast growing soft wood we were not robbing the forests of slow growing hard woods.
Thanks for reading this review I might tell you about the door handles we choose next.
