Installing the hardware is an art by itself. If you can work your way around a toolkit and consider yourself patient, then you can take it up a project for yourself.

This will ensure that you get a good deal.
Solid-core doors are essentially filled with wood fiber or cork-wood that help muffle sounds and withstand extreme weather. These doors offer better insulation against heat loss. Also, they are denser and eventually last longer than hollow-core doors.
The antique doorknobs are typically used on the exterior of the doors. These are designed to include key operated cylinders. In case of the ones that cater to the need for privacy, the key operated cylinders are absent. These are used on bedroom and bathroom doors. While they are lockable, they unlock with the help of an unlockable generic tool. Those meant for passages are also referred to as closet doorknobs and do not actually lock. The 'dummy' doorknobs are single knobs, with single screws. They are usually used on ball catch doors or in the absence of any latch mechanism.
First, check your neighborhood before making any decision. You don't want your front door to be the odd one out in a bad way. Strike a balance between trying to blend in the neighborhood and leaving a lasting impression.
