Hang an Interior Door in 3 Steps

Updating your interior doors adds value and appeal to your home which is particularly beneficial if you are trying to sell your property. Whether you’re planning on moving or simply want to revamp your living space, why not replace your dated doors with something new and stylish. If you’re ready for an interior update, here’s our DIY guide on how to hang an interior door in 3 steps.


For this task you will need: a door wedge, tape measure, pencil, chisel, screwdriver, and your brand-new hinges. A second person will be needed when fitting.


The first step in this revamping project is to choose which style of door is most suitable for your interior style. Modern doors work best in modern and contemporary style homes whereas traditional-type internal doors are better suited to traditional properties. Determine which material is better suited to both your desired aesthetic and budget. Get some inspiration from our Pinterest board of interior doors!

Once your new doors have arrived, you will need to plan the position of the new hinges. Have someone hold the door into place on the door frame and mark the hinge recesses on the new door with a pencil.

To hang the new door, place the hinges in position on the door and mark around them as your guide for chiselling. Chisel the markings to create the recesses. Fit the hinge to the doors, using one screw per hinge to begin with. Fix the hinge to the frame with one screw and check that the door opens and closes efficiently. Continue to fasten the remaining screws to ensure that the hinge is securely fixed to the door and door frame.
