What was a typical Victorian door?

A common Victorian door design features four panels, comprising either four solid timber panels or a combination of two glazed panels in the upper half and two timber panels in the lower half. The timber panels may be either flat, or raised and fielded. When it comes to the glazed panels, Victorian doors often incorporate patterned, frosted or stained glass to add a touch of decorative flair.

How can you tell if a door is Victorian?

To know if a door is Victorian, check for certain features. A typical Victorian door has four panels, with the upper ones being 2/3 of the length and a centre mullion separating the upper and lower panels. Internal doors usually have flat panels, not raised ones, and commonly use knob-style door handles.

Did the Victorians paint their internal doors?

Victorians often painted their internal doors, especially the more affordable softwood ones. These doors were coated with a high-end finish, using neutral paint such as off-white, cream or grey. However, doors made from expensive wood like oak and mahogany were typically left unpainted to showcase the natural beauty of the wood.

Why do Victorian doors open into the room?

Victorian doors usually open into the room for a couple of reasons. It helps with privacy, making it easier to cover up before someone enters. Also, it’s considered safer, especially in busy areas, as it reduces the chance of accidentally bumping into someone while opening the door.
