Look of a steel door

Steel look doors

A steel look door (or steel wood), also called a steel look door, has the unique look of a steel door, but is made of (usually black) powder-coated aluminum or wood. This modern interpretation of the old cast iron doors adds a stylish, modern, sleek touch to any room.

Elegant, sleek and unique

Steel look doors with glass and a black finish feel 100% at home in modern interiors. But they also fit seamlessly into more classic interior styles due to their neutral, yet special color and finish.

Because we always tailor them 100% to your needs, these features come out perfectly. So you also choose which handles to have installed, with or without a lock….

There are 2 possible variations of steel look doors. Steel wood is a door made of wood that has a steel look. The other variant is made of aluminum and follows the same principle. This one is available only as a pivot door.

Stylish and practical

The material of a steel look door

Matte black powder-coated aluminum is the classic finish used for most steel look doors. It is a tremendously sturdy, yet lightweight material that is also low-maintenance. In short, a modern material that is both stylish and practical. Wood is also an option with us.

The materials used in a steel look door have the advantage of being easy to maintain. This is because they are finished with a powder coating that prevents rust and distortion. We do recommend cleaning them regularly. This way, you will be able to enjoy your new doors for a long time.

Pivoting steel look door

We usually install steel look doors with pivot hinges. So you can open them in either direction. Even if you have your hands full, for example, you can easily push open the pivoting steel look door.

In most modern versions, the pivot hinges are already incorporated into the door, making them invisible, so to speak, when the door is closed. These modern variants add minimalism and style by eliminating sills and other visually distracting elements.


Frequently asked questions

A steel look door looks like a steel door, but is not made of steel or wrought iron. The profiles are made of aluminum combined with small or large glass windows made of tempered glass.

From measurement to installation, the average delivery time is +/- 8 working weeks. Please note that in many cases our schedule is full more than 8 weeks in advance, so don’t wait until the last minute to order your doors and make sure you are on the schedule in time. Measurement can always be scheduled at a later time. Also be sure to come in early for info and/or a quote as the choice of your doors may affect other factors in your build such as the plaster, screed/floor (expansion joints and floor transitions), baseboards, etc.

When you order your interior doors from us, we always provide an on-site measurement to ensure that all measurements are correct. However, in order to receive an accurate quote, it may be helpful to already take your own measurements (approximate). The more info, the more concrete and correct your quote.

It is best to install the doors as late as possible in the construction/construction phase. After the doors are installed, all that follows is the installation of baseboards and painting. Especially with painted doors, it is best to install the doors as late as possible. The less chance of damage if one still has to pass with large elements or other work to be done. In addition, it is also very important that the moisture level in your building is no longer too high and that heating is already provided. The minimum temperature in the residence should be +/- 14°. This is to prevent moisture problems and warping of the door leaves.

Interior doors themselves can be replaced relatively easily. Still, there are many elements to consider when replacing interior doors:

  • Baseboards may need to be adjusted / worked back on / put on
  • In some cases, the plaster needs to be touched up. It is possible that when the old doors are broken out, the plaster may crumble.
  • Walls may need to be repainted. If you don’t like that, choose a frame at least as wide as the current one and preferably a little wider.

For example, if you want to install doors in your newly built home for the time being for budgetary reasons, don’t work on the baseboards yet and don’t paint yet or just prime the walls. Especially if you want to replace the doors relatively soon (after a few years). This will save you a lot of trouble and expense when replacing your doors.

You can choose to paint your interior doors yourself. Most doors are available both painted and painted versions. If you want to get a nice result, keep in mind that it is best to remove the door leaves from the casing and disassemble the hardware. That way you can work much more closely and the end result will be a lot finer. However, should you choose lacquered doors you still want to paint your doors years later, that is also perfectly possible. A primer is then not even necessary; you can paint over them right away.

This depends on many different factors: the material used, the finish chosen, the type of frame, etc. Inform well with your placer to avoid surprises. Visit Peeters Interieur and get a price quote right away!

This varies by door type. Installing a sliding door and pivot door takes much more time than installing a block door, for example. When we schedule the placement, we will let you know approximately how long we need. That way you are well informed.
