First things first,
WHAT ARE FLUSH INTERIOR DOORS?
Flush doors are simple door designs with plain facings on both sides. They have a perfectly flush surface, hence their name. While flush doors can be used as an exterior door, they are often best used as interior doors due to their properties.
Typically, flush doors come in three core types: solid, hollow, and stave cores.
Solid-core flush doors have solid blocks of wood inside. Solid core doors are strong and have better soundproofing properties. They are made from a combination of blockboard/ Particle Board/Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF)/Laminated Core, cross band, face veneer, etc.
As the name suggests, the Hollow-core flush door is hollow inside with a honeycomb structure for support. The frame consists of stiles along with top, intermediate, and bottom rails. The spaces between stiles and rails are filled with wooden battens. Plywood sheets or cross bands and face veneers are glued to the core under pressure. The thickness of the plywood sheet is more than 6 mm. Hollow-core flush doors are light in weight and are less strong than solid-core flush doors.
Stave core flush doors feature horizontal wooden panels stacked one on top of the other. In other words, they are made by gluing veneer to a built-up core usually made up of different types of wood with their grain direction alternated for improved stability.

Flush door starting price ranges between #150,000 (6 inches frame) to #176,000 (9 inches frame) however they vary in designs and sizes.
