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.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."

"My new windows look great!! I can feel the difference in my house and my furnace is no longer staying on constantly. My installation crew was polite, tidy and speedy. It couldn't have went better"

"The workmen were very professional and did a great job. Cleaned up everything. I am very pleased with the new windows. Beautiful!"

"From start to finish everyone we dealt with were total professionals.. The project process was well communicated, the installers did an excellent job and the windows - I’m so excited about our new windows! They look great. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I am looking forward to cleaning them. And it was obvious immediately that the insulation is vastly better than the old windows. Also, I am just a customer who gets nothing for this endorsement. I just appreciate good service and an excellent product. This company knows how to do it right."
