8' Door vs 80" Door

Dear list:

Would anyone care to discuss the esthetics of an 8' door vs. an 80" door in a house with 12' ceilings? Do you think that one or the other would be obviously a better choice?

Thank you.

Either would look nice if trimmed out nicely.

An eight foot door would look better if it were at least 36" wide or wider I think. Anything else might look tall and thin. I think an 8 ft door would only look better if the door casings were wider than the minimum also. Just keep everything in the same perspective.
