Wow, that one looks exactly like my doors!

What I got was one-panel, flat-panel, vertical-grain fir veneer doors with square sticking. Simpson makes them, but they are pricey -- over $200 a pop, slab only, depending on the size. I called around here in Austin, and was able to find a door supplier (look under doors in the yellow pages) that could sell them from for more like $140, prehung. Might have been less.

I sprayed them with lacquer, no stain. They are gorgeous.

I checked them out and they are quite beautiful- wood veneer over MDF in a satin finish. They aren't totally solid core, but they still have a substantial heft to them. And the MDF ensures dimensional stability. Pricing is a bit of a vague area with this company. After some haggling with the quantity and the price, I got them down to $350 per door, which includes the locking privacy leverset (as shown in the second picture). The doors are all custom-sized, prehung and include the square-profile trim. This is a bargain compared to some of the other European-style doors I've seen.

Please avoid any interior doors faced with tropical wood. I have been on the Lenfex site and it appears that a number of their doors have rainforest wood veneers, thus helping speed the destruction of tropical forests.

The second door in the post above appears to me to be African mahogany (although it might be walnut).

An interesting place to look is with cabinetry manufacturers. I know that Woodharbor, based out of Iowa, makes interior doors to match their cabinets, and those are considered semi-custom. You can choose your profile (raised panel, flat panel, etc.), edge detail (plain edge, mission edge, etc.), wood species (maple, cherry, mdf, etc.), finish (primed, stained, stained with glaze, or custom finish), hinge color, etc. They come as slabs or prehung, and can also have glass panels, including laminated or patterned glass, which can really add to the modern look. I know you can create a much more modern look than they display on their website, because they typically aren't after the modern market.


If you click on 'flat-panel doors,' then on 'Fairmont,' there is a single flat-panel door available, similar to the one you pictured.

Hope this helps!

Debbie Travis took a $20 hollow slab door, flat-panel, and cut out rectangular holes in it. She then put in some frosted pyrex glass (you can get spray-on frost) sections. The result was a door straight from the mod 70s. Very cool and very economical!

I'm going to veneer my doors with 1/4 inch veneered plywood.
The additional thickness from the plywood will be eaten up by the framing around the door, and go unnoticed. I will just have to lay down a band of real 1/16 or 1/32 veneer down the side where the clasping mechanism runs.
If you opt to do this, make sure that the additional bulk doesn't prevent the door from opening by butting up against the framing.

I suggest you take a look at these modern interior doors from Scrigno. Picking the right interior doors which would compliment your design can be a rewarding task. Choose from these selection of doors and you'll be surprised at how well they fit with your contemporary interior design.
