Top 10 Best Ways To Repurpose And Reuse Old Windows

Windows are beautiful things whether they are fixed to the wall or reused for other creative purposes. When they are fixed to their frames in walls, they show us the world outside the four walls we are confined to. They can still change our worlds within the four walls even after getting dismantled if only we do not discard them as useless. Instead of discarding them as useless, they can be used for various decorative and utility purposes at home. This will add to the beauty as well as fun factor.

Here Are Some Such Creative Ideas For You To Implement At Your Homes:

1. Room Separator

Dismantled windows can be used as room separators when fixed between the rooms. Assess the size of the space available between two rooms or the room which you want to separate using these windows. Have clear idea about the utility purposes of the rooms. Fix the windows in such a manner that they can be opened when required and allow communication between the two rooms.

2. Cupboard Doors

Discarded windows can be used as door for cupboards and Show cases. Window panes must be cut to fit the size of showcases and racks. Once cut, they can be fixed to the walls and the once open cup boards can be used as a closed show case or closet. Windows with iron frames can be fixed to the bathrooms so a lot of storage space is available in the rest rooms also
