Re-use your garage door


At Bradford Garage Doors, we are always on the look-out for new and improved ways of using your garage door. We were one of the first companies to offer electronic operation and we also have a wide range of side-hinged doors in stock for those of you wishing to have something a bit different.

Recently, we have also learned of new ways in which you can re-use the old garage door for other applications. One of the most common methods is for tables or chairs and this is really starting to gather pace with interior and exterior designers across the globe, including here in Bradford.

It is has been reported that many old garage doors are being cut up and used as desks, as well as features in the garden and much more and we believe this is a good used of your old garage door. Admittedly many of these are timber, but you may be able to do something with a steel door too, such as a room divider.

An expert on this field of re-using garage doors for other applications said: “Many homeowners are opening their homes to the great outdoors by using garage doors instead of sliding glass doors. Garage doors make such a statement when incorporated into home designs. There’s instant intrigue and excitement when guests see them. “The doors are practical in function and offer the ‘wow factor’ that homeowners want.”

What do you make of this however? We asked a few people and they said that they usually replace their garage door when it is old and ruined and thus would not consider it good enough to re-use. Other said that in the modern era where everything is very technologically based this would not fit in to many modern designs.

Whatever your thoughts, it appears that some people will be using garage doors after they have protected the car, for something very different.
