those flush/trimless interior doors look great in modern and contemporary homes. However, make sure you have a contractor who can do them well. If you don't use someone who has a lot of experience with them it can look really crappy and completely kills the look. Additionally, the drywall returns on trimless doors can take a beating with kids and stuff. But they do look great.

I really like the flush doors too, but am concerned about clashing with my hickory floors. The two flush door options are at the bottom:

ah ok - you're talking about something different.

What I had in mind is a trimless door which some people refer to as flush:

I love the trimless door........what have used as the frame....the Ezyjamb system?

Definitely flush! Those cheap, ubiquitous six panel colonial doors would look ridiculous in a contemporary home. You might get away with a single recessed panel, or stacked horizontal recessed panels- but again, with a totally clean look, nothing raised or built up in the recessed area.

Contemporary? Modern? Or MCM?

I believe all three have distinctive "styles"

Plain o' luan doors are hidious regardless of the "style" of home.
One of my favorite "contemporary "styles" is the 4 horizonal frosted glass panel doors.

I also like the horizontal panel frosted glass doors, but do you really think ALL plain slab doors are hideous? I think they can work great in certain homes when used with the minimal, trimless door jamb. Even as someone who likes them, it is certainly not for every house and not even for every room in every house though.

I like all kinds of things that are out of my budget. Unfortunately, my options are limited to the ones in the link I pasted.
