While buying kitchen cabinet handles and knobs, it is always advisable to buy a couple of extra pieces because if they break sometime in the future, you will not be able to find an exact match.
Unlike the slab doors that were widely used, a pre-hung door can either have a hollow core or solid core. The most popular choice for these doors is molded hardwood. While both types offer durability and security, solid-core doors offer greater sound-proofing properties. While shopping for prefinished wood doors, make sure to look for durable stains and clear finishes, such as polyurethane. Also pay attention to the detailing on the wood, the more intricate carving and molding on the door, the better the quality.
Heavy yet reliable, there is no comparison when it comes to a solid-wood door. Apart from being an excellent sound muffler, it is definitely a good insulator. Remember, wood is prone to swelling and shrinking as per changes in the humidity level, which is why you need to take extra care to ensure it lasts for a longer period of time.
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. However, if you are getting it installed from a professional, then it is always advisable to buy the hardware from stores that have these professionals working for them. This will ensure that you get a good deal.
