2-panel or 6-panel door, smooth surface or woodgrain texture?

Does this 2-panel door look nice or the 6-panel one? All other doors would be changed too.

Also, does the smooth surface look better than the woodgrain textured one?

2-panel door

The style of house and furniture is contemporary.

Thank you very much.

I would say that the door you linked to would be country styled. Woodgrain would look more rustic to me than a smooth surface. Have you done a search on Houzz.com to look at doors in contemporary settings?

Enduring, thank you very much. I checked Houzz.com, and could only see very few doors in the pictures. How about the 2-panel arched-top door compared to the 6-panel door shown in the following link? I would have all the doors changed including the door between garage and house. Thanks.

Hi, I just think with the arched door it reads more old fashioned. Especially with the routed detail of the panels. I would think any panel number would be appropriate, just what ever number you like. When I think contemporary I think cleaner edges of the stiles and rails, without the rounded edges. I think there are examples of very clean doors on the link I provided. I like the first door for instance. There are also doors shown that I wouldn't think of as contemporary, but I am not a designer. You could post over in the decoration forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: houzz link contemporary interior doors.

I would suggest a one panel door - shaker style. It looks very contemporary. No wood grain. The link you gave doesn't seem to have single panel doors.

Another consideration is whether the doors will be brushed or sprayed.
Brush marks seem to disappear on a woodgrain surface, whereas they are difficult to eliminate on a smooth surface....unless they are sprayed.
