Wood doors -- help!
Hello, We're in the process of an exterior and then kitchen renovation. I want to replace the doors on the first floor, because the new kitchen will be white and woodwork is white. Thiought it would be nice to add stained wood doors in a medium tone to break up all the white. I don't need many doors: bifolds for a foyer closet, one door in the kitchen, pocket door to half bath and pocket door to laundry. What species of wood is good for staining? What are the mid- or lower cost species? I am assuming maple, cherry and mahogany are most expensive; is that correct? How much should I expect to pay for a pre-hung wood door? I am looking at Craftsman style doors, with one flat panel on top, and two on the bottom.
Same thing for exterior doors -- how much roughly and what species is best?
