Interior Door Style #7: "The Continental"
Continental doors are very popular in new homes. The curved top piece sets the door off, giving it more dimension against the straight lines of trim.
Interior two door entries are scaled so that each door is thinner than a "standard width", but the total distnace is often wider.
