interior doors, flush or panel
 
We are remodeling or home, but will sale in three years when my husband retires. We are replacing some of our interior doors which are flush. My thinking is that flush doors are very dated and should replace them with doors with panels. Question is, are flush doors dated or is it just a personal preference?

There flat panel not flush panel.
Flat doors look cheap and are cheap.
Check out any mobile home and see what type doors they use, flat panel in most cases.

Panel doors add a lot to a house. Recommended. We riddled and changed out all ours. Much nicer.

Slab doors cost about $20 and look like they cost $20. Go with the panel doors.

We replaced the cheap luan plywood doors with 6-panel doors in a house we used to own. Believe me, it made a world of difference in how the place looked. It's a somewhat tedious job, but not difficult.

I would ask a realtor whether there is any payback for that change. You may invest a lot of money that you'll not be able to recoup.

slab doors are dated. the only time you see them in use now is in odd situations on renovations where a very short door is required and cuting down a panel door wont work because of how much needs to be taken off

They are also used a lot in flips and rentals. Where I am in fla you see a lot in older homes built during the boom.
