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.

"The service provided by Renewal by Anderson is great, both on the sales and the installation side. Our sales representative was very accommodating and helpful. The installation crew was efficient and they all were professional. These are really nice windows and a great upgrade especially from builder-grade windows."

We appreciate your craftsmanship professionalism, and cannot say enough about the wonderful experience.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
