    i have the same trouble.
    our interior living room door appears to be much larger than the average.
    only door that appears to similar is an exterior door, and none suit the style we require.
    will watch with interest

    Are your houses local or ex local authority?? We bought ours of the council,internal doors 32x80 and a real ballache to source replacements.Unfortunately you can't just march into b&q and take them off the rack.You may find a timber merchant can get them for you or possibly make them but it isn't cheap,especially if like ours, it's a 1 hour fire door you require.

    I find that 2ft 8" by 6ft 8" is a very common size, fire doors are easy to source from builders and timber merchants, even the usual sheds hold this size in stock. However it helps if you measure them in metric nowadays because thats what they all speak. I even managed to get a front door 3 ft by 7ft fairly easily. Also worth having a look on eBay too.

    I am also looking for 32 inch * 82 inch doors and need six ! It would probably have been easier to reduce the door frame size when we replastered, if only I had known then how expensive and hard to find this size of door is. If you are looking for just 1 or 2 doors it may be worth trying archetictural salvage yards. It gets hard to find to find larger sets of matching doors. I have just came across this place
    http://www.doorworldglasgow.com/and will be paying them a visit soon to find out about price etc.</p>

    I bought some doors from B&Q that were 32" wide. The doors were probably not the best quality (I know someone here will put them down) but will do for me. They cost about £27 and were Broadland. You will have to order them.

    Travis Perkins has interior doors 4 or 6 panel wood in all sizes. Not good looking wood (will need painting).

    Just checked my doors, 32 1/2 inch

    Is this your problem? You can find 32.5 but not 32?

    If so take 1/2 inch off one side or 1/4 inch off both sides.

    It doesn't seem like much of a problem finding this size to me?
    Just depends what you mean by cheap

    i had this problem so i just re-sized the door frame. remove the arcitrave, you can save and re-use or just throw it away. get the measurements of the door you want and work out how much smaller it is than the frame. add on a few mm's for the gap all round. depending on the gap you might only need to add a strip to one side of the doorframe. ask a timber merchant to cut the wood to the necessary dimensions. glue and nail in place. fit some more arcitrave. no damage to plaster and no one would ever know

    I had to order my 32" wide doors but they do other sizes instore aswell in the Broadland range. I also needed smaller doors which were bought there and then. I think we paid about £26 per door.
  • fatblokexl
    it is all well and good resizing the door frame and something we had considered but when we bought our suite it only just fitted through the door frame so reducing it would mean, if we moved, lugging it out of the patio doors, asking the neighbours if we can lump it over the fence, through their garden etc to get it to the removal van (mid terrace living has more than 1 downside).

    not too much of an issue as we have alright neighbours, but i hate to think what we would need to do if they were bad ones.

    also the doors we are looking for would need to be mainly glass. either half glass or 12panelled.
    i will take a look at some of the sites mentioned above for inspiration

    My interior doors are 31 3/4" (807mm) wide, which is a size I just can't seem to find anywhere. Would it be possible to buy 32" doors and cut off a 1/4" down the inner length?

    Also, is it possible to do this with the painted white woodgrain effect doors without damaging them?

    it would be a little less than 1/4 from each side due to the gap needed. so yes it would

    I managed to get some from B&Q Warehouse, they stock several styles at 32 and 33 inch widths.

    Thanks B&Q

    Rick, do you think anyone on this post might still be looking for doors?

    Last post was over three years ago.
    Just because I've written it doesn't mean that
    either you or I have to believe it.

    AAC Doors.
    32 x 80 and they have loads.
    In the midlands.
    You can always search ebay for interior doors and these are on there too.
