awkward sized door


Postby marrittm » Tue May 26, 2009 1:21 pm

hello my problem is that I have got 4 doors in my home that have a width of 725mm I have looked in diy stores and all I can find close to this size is 762mm. the doors I’m after need to be with glass in door so I just wondered what is maximum that can be trimmed of a door or is there a simpler option. I did manage to find a door that was 726mm which would be ideal but it cost £148 which is way too expensive as I would need 4 of them.

The reason I need doors with glass is because the hall way is so dark due to there being no windows to allow in light.

I will be great full if someone could come up with a simple solution with minimum cost thank you.

Doors are usually measured in ' +"" and come in stardard sizes, although the more obscure sizes will be expensive, and I would think this is what you have found.
If the door is solid wood, you should be able to trim just over 18mm from each side. If it composite you could be struggling.

Assuming you have a fairly modern house, I think you probably have a metric door opening (chippies nightmare we call these)
Sizes are usually 2040mm x either 626mm, 726mm or 826mm, for this reason there will only be a limited amount of styles available, but your local Magnets will be able to help with some.
