Contemporary internal doors - any ideas?

Had thought of plain flat fire doors, nice and heavy - white satin paint and good quality handles, not so keen on oak doors - just a bit over the whole oak thing and apart from that the skirtings and architrave are white....haven't really seen any doors I like that don't look a bit over-stylized and almost seem dated already.

I am doubting myself though and I guess my fear is that a flat white door going to look a little too plain and I'm taking the clean lines thing too far.

Some reassurance or ideas needed.

Try Howdens - they seem to have a good range of doors.

Sounds brilliant, does it have to be a fire door or just a good quality flush door? My parent's house (done up in the 70's) had white flush doors throughout- takes me back! There are some great architectural type modern door handles around.

Plain is not necessarily a bad thing is it?

It doesn't have to be a fire door - but I would like a solid door, a door that has some weight to it, so it feels sturdy and has some noise reducing qualities. I like plain, definitely staying well clear of victorian repro panel doors but the builder keeps directing me towards door shops in a way that suggests he thinks my choice of plain door is a bit bonkers given the attempted high end finish I'm pushing for and then I start to doubt myself.

Decisions, decisions and dh is useless - he just says he likes what I like!

If you are worried about it being too plain you could always go for a painted door with a small amount of panelling, but not the old fashioned type.

I'm thinking something like this -

Or in the flush doors section of M's link, there are some plain doors with just subtle panels in quarters or thirds, those look like quality ones. Not going for the cardboard/hardboard type then which my dad used to put his foot through!
