Smart Old Door Upcycling Ideas to Consider

Interior remodeling aims to improve the home’s look and function. With a door replacement project, for instance, most homeowners focus on the replacement while disregarding the current yet worn-out one. In many cases, the contractor in charge of the endeavor will gather up the old materials and either dispose of them or repurpose them again into new products.

Smart Old Door Upcycling Ideas to Consider

Sometimes, however, recycling can be done by yourself. Here are some smart upcycling ideas to consider for your old doors.

Headboards

Doors can be revitalized into headboards for custom-made beds. They happen to be the right size for this project. The doors’ trims and finishes provide an instant design boost, especially if the beds being made bring out classic, relaxing undertones fit for the entire room.

Folding Table

Like casement windows, entry doors open and close on hinges. With this idea in mind, you can turn an old door into a folding table that serves as a temporary desk for your daily household items. It can be installed in laundry rooms or home offices. Mount one on the wall to save space, making sure the operable panel is secured with a chain attached to the corner joints.

Picture Frames

A worn-out patio door can be turned into one giant picture frame. The fixture is painted a different color to complement the look and feel of the interior. Once all photo images are placed on each panel, the whole thing is then hung horizontally. Each “frame” can have glass to protect the photo paper.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
