Recomendation for new door on this small pantry in small bathroom?

Right now, it;s an old 70's era cheap hollow builder grade 1/2 door. It measures 14 inx 78 and I'd like to replace it with something more modern. Any recommendations?

After living in houses that were built in the 20s or before, it always amazes me when 70s construction is considered old. Modern interior doors are cheap & hollow. That's what makes them modern & that's what you'll still find in big box stores today. If you want a better grade door, look at some building supply houses.

Have a cabinet maker (or you) build a face frame with a set of cabinet doors.

Is there a way to cut a louvered door that's slightly bigger? They sell them a Home D.

You can probably cut an inch or so off the bottom.

I'd also have to cut the width though.
