Resilient and beautiful with or without staining, Douglas fir is among the world's most popular woods for doors, window frames, and other construction. From craftsman homes to ranches and rustic homes to contemporary villas, Douglas fir is fit for any climate, and withstands intense conditions. Because of its universal appeal, Douglas is used in a wide array of settings across the world. It takes any stain or finish well, and is easily fire and safety rated up to 120 minutes (other options range from 30 to 90 minutes of safety or fire rating on Douglas fir doors).

Doulas fir is a sturdy wood that stands up to high-traffic entryways. It can be embellished with wrought iron accessories for a rustic look, or brushed steel to match modern decor. Stain it deep brown to accent doorways of rustically styled homes, or lighter to compliment midcentury modern or ultra-modern houses or workspaces. The versatility Douglas fir offers makes it popular among diverse consumers who enjoy decor styles of all kinds.

Douglas fir reddens if it hasn't been finished to protect it from hot and cold air, rain, and snow. Even when used for interior doors, it will change shades if left nude. Most people will paint fir to match interior design, or stain and lacquer it to stop reddening.
