Correct paint for doors?

Could you tell me which type of paint you generally recommend for wooden doors to be painted white (gloss?, satin-wood?, other). Do you always paint skirting with same? Thank you!

Doors take a lot of use and abuse, so when painting them, choose a durable finish that has a semigloss or gloss sheen. Semigloss or gloss makes cleaning easier and holds up to frequent cleaning. You need to lay down at least two topcoats to get a uniform appearance.

Preparing your woodwork for painting is very important, fill any holes using correct wood filler,
Sand and undercoat, this will give you a floorless finish after glossing

On new wood I would prime 2 coats, undercoat and then gloss lightly sanding between coats.
My preference is dulux paints or high gloss for mirror finish but there are satinwood paints, water based,solvent based and oil based.
Water based is not for me but again personal preference.
I like dulux none drip rather than liquid gloss.
Again all good for doors/skirts and architraves also gloss as more durability and easy clean.

We would recommend rubbing down the doors and applying gloss, there is also a primer then gloss.
