Default Rumbly bass caused by room vibrations

I'm getting a rumbly/bloated bass on certain low bass notes that really jump out.
I've realized that about 75/80% of it is caused by a wood panel door that is virtually right next to my seating position to my right.
It's a bit hard to explain but,
The sofa is on the same wall as the door and I can just reach out my right arm and open it. Then there is about a 6/7 foot alcove to my right then a chimney breast. I'm basically sat side on to the fireplace

I made a discovery. I put my ear to the door and the bass is sort of resonating/reverberating with the door.When I open the door (open it away from me.) the rumbly bass is lessened a great deal. I can't have it open all the time though in winter as it's freezing.It leads to a hallway and kitchen and unless I have the wood burner on in the kitchen, its too cold.

My question is, would replacing the door with a solid door do the trick as this door that's on is a plain wood panel with woodchip interior, like an office door (horrible looking door btw) or is it something to do with the alcove? When I move forward so as I am level with the chimney breast there's no bloated bass at all.

I had a problem with a door awhile ago, as I was experiencing something pretty similar. I thought about changing out to a heavier door, but tried some cheaper options first. I had to go through 3 handles before finding one that different vibrate. Then I read about using thin weather proofing tape on the edge of the door, so gave it a shot. It basically stopped the door from vibrating in its frame as the seal between it and the frame was very tight, which finally made my door silent. An easy test would be to place your hand on the door while it is vibrating to see if enough pressure will make it stop. If it does, then the weather stripping might help.
