Unfinished Internal Doors
Our selection of unfinished internal doors are available in a variety of door styles and materials. Whatever your decorating theme or style, we have an unfinished door that will match it perfectly. All of our internal doors are made to high standards, so you can be confident that they meet the highest quality expectations.
Unfinished doors refer to doors that are not pre-finished or painted. Instead, they are pre-sanded but otherwise untreated, making them a blank canvas for you to apply your desired stain, varnish, or paint. By choosing unfinished doors, you have the flexibility to customise them to match your specific design preferences.
What is the difference between finished and unfinished internal doors?
The main difference between finished and unfinished internal doors is that pre-finished doors are ready to be installed, while unfinished doors require sanding, priming, and painting. With unfinished doors, you have the option to customise the protective finish to your preference. Hiring someone or doing it yourself are the available options. Remember to follow proper painting techniques for a flawless and long-lasting result.
Internal Oak Doors
The majority of our unfinished interior doors are made from oak. Unfinished oak doors are popular because they allow you to work with the beauty of the natural wood grain in your chosen way.
Our unfinished oak interior doors are not painted or lacquered. Instead, they are pre-sanded but otherwise untreated, allowing you to customise with your preferred stain, varnish, or paint. Unfinished oak doors offer flexibility for personalisation and can be tailored to match your desired aesthetic. They can also be more budget-friendly than pre finished options because they haven't been through a factory finishing process.
To finish an unfinished oak door, gather the required tools and follow these steps: Apply a wood conditioner, then sand the surface. Next, apply wood stain evenly and let it dry. Finally, seal the door with a clear topcoat. Following these steps will help you achieve a professional-looking result.
We also offer unfinished pine doors, with competitive pricing and plenty of natural beauty. Wood grain adds to their aesthetic appeal.
When it comes to pine doors, the decision to paint or stain depends on your preferences. If you desire a more natural look and don't mind maintenance, staining is a suitable option. On the other hand, if you want to add colour or prefer less maintenance, painting is a better choice. Ultimately, the decision is yours based on what suits your home best.

Finishing Your Doors: Frequently Asked Questions
How do you finish an unfinished internal door?
To finish an unfinished internal door, begin by sanding the surface to remove any imperfections. Then, apply a coat of primer followed by two coats of paint or stain. Allow each layer to dry fully before applying the next. Finish off with a protective clear coat for added durability and shine.
Can you leave an internal door unfinished?
No, you shouldn't leave a door unfinished. It is recommended to treat unfinished doors with a preservative or sealant to prevent moisture from warping the timber. Painting with white gloss paint is a popular choice for treating internal doors.
