Our top tips on door re-use

RE-USE IN ACTION: DOORS

Doors are one of the most commonly reused architectural salvage components.

Here we share some of our latest reclaimed finds and examples of their reuse. 

Our latest stock includes panelled, fully glazed and half glazed doors. Most are in solid hardwood frames.

Oversized or non-standard size doors can make a space feel generous.

Larger panels can easily be adapted to become sliding screens or a partition. 
With all door reuse, consider different hanging methods; hinged, track sliding or pivot hinging.

Glazed or half glazed internal doors can help small spaces feel lighter.

Building a frame opening to fit the salvaged door is more advantagous than finding a door to fit an existing aperture.

#3060 Tall three panelled door £295+vat further details...

#2166 An oak door with a pedimented surround £950+vat further details...

Glazed or half glazed internal doors can help small spaces feel connected to the rest of the home.

Pairs of doors block sound but allow a visual connection - ideal for screening television rooms, or as seen here, to connect bedroom to dressing or bathing rooms. A curtain or voile can easily be added for privacy
