Architectural salvage stores are filled with doors that have more character than a stock door and often come with quality hardware — all for the price of a stock slab at your local supplier.
When buying a salvage piece, measure several points on the door. It may have been trimmed to fit an opening that wasn't square in the past. Make sure it isn't badly warped. And think about how this door was hung compared with your intended use. Hinge direction can often be changed, but the latch set might not be reversible.
