- NineteenSixtiesInteriorDesigntrackworld – teak/sapele internal doors?
I live in a 60s built house, complete with the original hollowcore doors. Not being someone obsessed with making everything look Victorian (as Britain seems to be), I need to track down a suitable matching flush interior door.
I’m guessing that most of these original features have since been discarded by home “improvers”, but are they something a salvage yard might hold onto?
Otherwise, where would be a good place to source something new that’s suitable? (Am undecided on colour – we’ve either got teak or sapele.)
I’ve googled and googled, but only seem to throw up a billion alibaba hits….

We took the same view as you when renovating our 60’s house. Used these but bought the fire doors to give them a bit more weight and substance
I only need one, hence trying to get a match (I *think* they are sapele, but could easily be teak – they are 45 years old..!).
Am glad to find another person who appreciates that not all things 60s are to be disregarded. I rather like the period* features of these doors….
*Just not bloody Victorian/Edwardian “period” as every (wo)man and their dog is now obsessed with.Posted 5 years agonickhartMember
Our Victorian/Edwardian house had lovely doors, solid wood, gorgeous. My opinion obviously. We only found out by accident as the original owners wanted the sixties look and had covered them with a sheet of hardboard, pinned in place then painted.Posted 5 years ago
Cheaper than a new door, unless you have a door missing then you’re starting afresh anyhow.
