Choosing a traditional style oak door is one way to achieve an authentic look. Traditional raised panel door designs, whether they are 4 or 6 panel, are always a good option, as they are a timeless classic that just do not date. Classic oak door styles are also a popular choice for modern properties too, blending in easily with a myriad of design themes.
