To keep the period home's historical appearance intact, architectural salvage doors should, whenever possible, be used throughout the home. Interior designs in these type of dwellings necessitate the use of antique wood doors that fit into the design aesthetic. Bedroom and bathroom doors, closet doors, some of which might be pocket doors depending on the home style, pantry doors, as well as back doors and garage doors all should be salvage doors in keeping with the design style of the vintage home.

As the timber frame is often fairly flimsy, extra pieces of timber have to be built into the door for fixing locks and door handles. The extra material is called a lock block. Some doors have lock blocks on each side; others have only one -so you have to be careful when hanging the door to make sure you fix the hinges to the correct edge of the door. New doors should have a stamp on one edge showing the location of the lock block. On some very lightly built doors, blocks are also provided to assist when fixing the hinges, and external doors have blocks and wide rails for fixing letter-boxes find out exactly where these are before buying the door.
