Behind closed doors

Doors are good, aren’t they? Here at BOB we feel like people don’t think about doors enough.

They open. They close. They lead to new places. There are 1,514 of them in Buckingham Palace alone. They even released popular rock music in the early 1970s.

When you’re choosing interior doors to fit in a home, office or anywhere else, there are a few important factors to consider before you decide.

We’ve teamed up with Premdor to open the door on everything you need to know.


A door, in essence, is a functional piece of furniture.  You wouldn’t compromise on the quality or styling of your kitchen would you?  Well you don’t have to on your doors either.

When you choose doors to put in your customers’ homes, you have to think of what they want from a door.

For example, two huge functions of doors are to keep noise out (or in) and to stand strong against fire.

That’s why it’s important to choose a robust option like the ones from Premdor’s PORTFOLIO collection. Solid Core as standard and includes FD30 and FD60 BWF certified fire doors.


Doors aren’t just about opening and closing. They’re about style and substance. Think about the door to 10 Downing Street, for example. It’s a classic.

We don’t want to state the obvious, but when putting interior doors in homes, it’s usually a good idea to keep them all looking the same.

However, identical can get boring.

All the doors in the PORTFOLIO collection use Veneer Match Technology to produce a consistent grain and colour while leaving natural variations that mean they’re never completely identical.

Modern, traditional, warm, inviting, bright – take a look at Premdor’s new PORTFOLIO Collection, with Natural, Exotic, Contemporary, and Classic ranges. There’s a style to suit all homes and personalities.
