Why Pictures of Reclaimed Doors Taken in the Workshop Can Look Slightly Different When the Doors Arrive with Customers
When you purchase a reclaimed timber door, you're getting a unique piece of history. Reclaimed doors are made from wood that has been salvaged from old buildings and structures. This means that each door has its own unique character, with its own markings and imperfections.

You may have noticed that pictures of reclaimed doors taken in the workshop can look slightly different when the doors arrive with customers. This is because there are a few factors that can affect the appearance of a reclaimed door, including:

  • Lighting: The lighting in the workshop can affect the way that the wood looks in photographs. For example, natural light can make the wood look lighter and brighter, while artificial light can make it look darker and more subdued.
  • Background: The background in the workshop can also affect the way that the door looks in photographs. For example, a white background can make the door look brighter and more vibrant, while a dark background can make it look darker and more rustic.
  • Angle: The angle from which the door is photographed can also affect its appearance. For example, photographing the door from below can make it look taller and more imposing, while photographing it from above can make it look shorter and more squat.
  • Finish: The finish on the door can also affect its appearance. For example, a clear finish will allow the natural grain and texture of the wood to shine through, while a dark stain can make the wood look more uniform.

In addition to these factors, it's also important to remember that reclaimed doors are natural products. This means that they can vary slightly in color, texture, and appearance from door to door.

If you're concerned about how your reclaimed door will look when it arrives, here are a few things you can do:

  • Ask for multiple photos: When you're purchasing a reclaimed door, ask the seller for multiple photos taken from different angles and in different lighting conditions. This will give you a better idea of what the door will look like in person.
  • Visit the workshop: If possible, visit the workshop where the reclaimed door is being stored. This will give you a chance to see the door in person and to ask the seller any questions you have.
  • Be prepared for some variation: It's important to be prepared for some variation in the appearance of your reclaimed door. Remember that these doors are natural products with their own unique character.
