Here are some handy ways you can incorporate recycled doors into your home.
The Adelaide & Rural Salvage yard is full of recycled wooden doors just waiting to be put back to good use. There are a variety of ways you can utilise an old door and repurpose in a way that is affordable, functional and impressively unique.
A recycled timber door can be used for so much more than a barrier between inside and outside of your house. When the time comes to update or change your doors it’s always worth trying to keep or repurpose old doors and turn them into beautiful additions to your home. Perfect for creating standout features, the wood in recycled timber doors has character, age and texture that is both visually appealing and with the right tools, easy to manipulate. A do-it-yourself project using recycled old wooden doors and windows will allow you to refresh an indoor or outdoor environment.
Glass covered coffee table
Solid wooden doors are the perfect choice for creating a rustic or antique table top. They’re already cut to a convenient and manageable size and usually only require sanding, paint and an appropriate base or legs to suit the style you’re going for. Whether it’s a timber coffee table or a bedside table, you can eat and drink off of something you’ve created with your own hands. Pick out your door today to get started.
Create a bedroom headboard
Door frames are a popular choice for rustic headboards. There are many ways to create this modern interior style, however, a simple way is to lean two to three doors side by side behind your bed frame. Sand, paint and style to your chosen aesthetic.
Barn door or rustic doors
Recycling old barn doors to add character and charm to modern design. This popular renovation choice is being used from New York lofts, to modern Melbourne designer houses. This designer choice can soften the harshness of some slick modern designs by adding warmth to a space.
Leaning or mounted mirrors
The majority of old timber doors have recessed panels perfect for insetting a mirror. You can find or source a full length mirror or have a mirror cut to your custom size and then simply glue the mirror in place to create a timber-framed mirror that will stand or hang proudly in your home.
Many doors can be repurposed as bookcases or additional storage furniture. You could install shelves on the front of the door or add panels to the top, bottom or side to form a complete bookcase. Be sure to secure your door properly to a wall or install wooden feet for extra support.
Other ideas include:
