Sometimes, your wooden window frames and doors may be past their best. Maybe you’ve decided to have a new set of wooden doors and frames. Or – perish the thought – gone for PVC-U frames (Wash your mouth out with soap and water, dear boy – Ed). Some may be good enough for future use as other items. For example: garden furniture, picture frames, or display cabinets. With some carpentry skills, recycling your disused wooden doors into something new shouldn’t be too challenging.

The Upcycled Wonders website has a number of recycling tips, adding a new lease of life to items you would otherwise dispose of. One page focuses on the use of wooden doors as photo frames, bedheads, coffee tables, and shelves. Their website is a useful source of inspiration. They also have a Pinterest site, enabling you to pin their designs onto your Pinterest account.

What if I would like to recycle my disused doors (yet offload them)?

You may prefer to dump your doors or windows. Instead of hiring a skip, you could make them free (or at reasonable cost) to a good home. The SalvoWEB site is a useful source, with links to architectural salvage and antique dealers. There is also a classified section which enables you to buy or sell disused window frames and doors.

For further information on recycling and fitting new wooden window frames and doors, we at Chartwell Wooden Windows are delighted to be of service. If you have any queries, give us a call on 01798 815570. We shall get back to you as soon as possible.
