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.
According to the standards set, the door leaf or the flat and hinged section of the door; detachable in nature, is 44 mm wide. The door leaf is completely chlorofluorocarbon free or CFC free. The standard composite door thickness would approximately range from 760 to 915 mm. Nevertheless, there are no restrictions on the designs and the door width, as custom-made doors according to one's personal specifications can be fabricated.
Though most of the wooden trims are amongst the traditional options, you can find these trims ruling this segment of interior designing even today. Wooden trim moldings that are made using high density polyurethane and are easy to install are amongst the highly popular picks for gracing doors and windows of modern homes. Trim moldings which are fluted or paneled look extremely elegant when added to the door frame. Paneled plinth is another option which you can consider while adding trims. These look gracious when painted in nice colors which complement the door and surrounding walls.
When we talk of door dimensions, it is imperative that you measure the size of the existing door as well as that of the pre-hung door you plan to buy. Do make it a point to measure the front door opening end to end, including the frame area, or else you will end up reducing the actual entrance area. Ideally, the pre-hung unit should be an inch smaller in terms of height and width, compared to the opening itself.
