20 Interior Door Myths Busted

Interior doors, the unsung heroes of home design, often get overlooked in the grand scheme of home renovations. But what if we told you that these everyday essentials hold the potential to dramatically transform your home? At One Day Doors and Closets, we believe in the power of doors to redefine spaces. In this post, we're setting the record straight by debunking 20 common myths about interior doors. Get ready to discover how a simple door replacement can unlock a world of style and functionality in your home.

1. Myth: All doors are square.

Truth: The idea of a perfectly square door is a myth. Ever experienced a door sticking after a rainy day? That's because various factors like weather, temperature, and climate can cause a door to warp and change shape. Moreover, over time, homes can shift in their foundation, leading to architectural alterations. At One Day Doors & Closets, we understand these nuances. That's why we measure each door frame down to 1/1,000th of an inch and custom-make every door to ensure a precision fit. The result? A door that closes with a satisfying soft click, every time."

This ensures your doors are built to last and maintain their fresh, elegant appearance with minimal effort.
