DIY Door Upcycling: An Infographic

When you’ve replaced your old doors, or have salvaged them elsewhere, there are ways you can create some DIY interior design magic with them. Here’s a list.


People replace their doors for different reasons.

Sometimes, it’s because a new interior design style is sought after, calling for different doors. Sometimes, it’s a question of opening up a space, removing walls, and therefore removing the doors as well. Other times, it’s just plain old age, where the stalwart door that has always hung there has officially served its role — well, at least it’s initial one .

Whatever the reason, old doors can continue to serve a space, or other spaces, even after they’ve been taken down. Here’s an infographic based on a piece we published earlier that expands on a few ideas for old doors used in new and stylish ways. Take a look!
