VICTORIAN DOOR GALLERY
What was a typical Victorian door?
The typical Victorian front door has four panels, with either four solid timber panels or two glazed panels in the top half, and two timber panels in the bottom half. The timber panels are either flat or raised and fielded. The glass panels are often made with patterned/frosted glass or stained glass.
How can you tell if a door is Victorian?
A typical Victorian front door was of four-panel construction with the upper panels being 2/3 of the length and the upper and lower panels separated by a centre mullion. Most internal doors had flat panels (not raised and fielded) and nearly always featured knob style door handles.
Did the Victorians paint their internal doors?
Many Victorian interior doors were painted, particularly the cheaper softwood ones. These were given a luxury finish with a coat of neutral paint like an off-white, cream or grey. Doors made of expensive wood like oak and mahogany, however, wouldn’t be hidden away under a coat of paint.
Why do Victorian doors open into the room?
One of the reasons given for this is modesty, as it is easier to cover up before someone comes around an opening door. Another argument for inward-facing interior doors is safety. If your bedroom door opens onto a passageway with high traffic, you may knock someone over as they walk past.
