The first impression usually lasts longer and being a decor blogger, I find it true especially for entrance to our homes. Entrance creates a lasting impression if it is done elegantly but somehow doors remain unnoticed unless either they are strikingly beautiful or completely in a bad shape. Aren't you agree!!
Doors being an important feature in every home should not only be pleasing to the eyes but should also possess features like durability, strength, water and heat resistance and the most important thing is it should not warp with time. To install plain and dull looking doors for the mere purpose of maintaining privacy and security is passe. Doors these days have become much more than that. More specifically flush doors are in trend and have become a beautiful structure and integral part of a home’s interiors.
Do you know when it comes to decorating homes there are numerous options available for homeowners to choose a door from like panel doors, glass doors, PVC doors, steel doors, membrane doors, skin doors, and the most important ones flush doors. Why not let's talk more about flush doors and why these doors have become the first choice of every homeowner.
I had always wondered what flush doors are made of but after going through Century Ply's website, I have gained some knowledge now. A flush door has a basic structure composed of solid blockboard core, vertical stiles, and horizontal rails that create a pre-fixed frame. The blockboard consists of wooden strips that are placed edge-to-edge and sandwiched between veneers, then bonded under high pressure and temperature using a synthetic resin. Let's understand it this way, it is a door that is made of a timber frame covered with ply from both the sides and then the hollow part inside is filled with rectangular blocks of soft wood and that's why it doesn't warp with time. Then a decorative finish is given by fixing veneer on the top, hence they are available in a number of colours, patterns and finishes. A flush door is so called because it has an entirely smooth surface. You splash the water on its surface and it would simply flow off without accumulating.
I have come across so many brands that claim to offer quality flush doors but CenturyPly stands out from the rest for its superior quality. CenturyPly has mastered the art of creating flush doors, which are not only functional in terms of strength and security but also visually appealing and inviting to the viewer’s eye.

But, this kind of quality is only maintained because their doors pass through a total of 15 rigorous tests, yes!! you read it right! 15 rigorous tests and some of them are the impact indentation test, shock resistance test, slamming test, screw withdrawal resistance test and glue adhesion test.
