Question Door for new storage space under stairs

Greetings. I am in the middle of a den remodel. During the sheetrock removal, I exposed a nice little area under our stairs that I was thinking about converting to storage space. It has a small, nonstardard opening (27.5" wide by 42.5" high). The wall is not structurall. What are my options for installing a door to cover this opening? Where would one find a door this size? Thanks in advance.

You can see like if home depot or lowes have a banged up hollow core door say like 2- 0 wide and cut down to how high you need.Or 3/4 " ply and make a Z on the back of it out of 1"X4"

Or make a face frame and install a cabinet door with cabinet hinges. Drawback to that would be stepping over the face frame on the bottom. But it would look good!
