Closet doors

Storage space in the home is typically treasured among homeowners, especially that of a closet. But we don’t necessarily want our belongings out in the open for everyone to see. Closet doors are essential, but often forgotten about when it comes to home décor.
Don’t let your closet door become a boring feature of the room. Though you may not think of your closet door often, it’s a great opportunity to add a unique look to your bedroom. There are many options when it comes to creating a unique look with your closet door and can be an instant update to your bedroom. Is there a color you really love but are too hesitant in painting an entire room? A closet door is a great way to accent a room with a bright color without risking it all. You can repurpose any style of closet door with a fresh coat of paint. If you’re feeling creative, try incorporating a horizontal stripe design to really give your doors a unique look.
·       Sliding doors – These are a great way to save space in your room. With sliding closet doors there are typically two options. One option is to have your door slide into the wall, or a “pocket door.” These disappear into the wall so it’s completely out of the way when needed. Sliding doors come in a variety of styles and finishes, from frosted and translucent glass to mirrored or raised panel. Only permitting access to one side of your closet at a time is the biggest drawback to sliding doors.

·       Bi-Fold doors - Installed to fold back to one or both sides, bi-folding doors are a nice alternative to sliding doors because they give you access to the full width of your closet, and only take up half as much floor space as a swinging door.
·       Glass doors - Rooms with a contemporary look will benefit from a modern glass closet door. Frosted glass sliding doors are a popular option for homeowners who want to hide their storage space while giving a new look to their room. Layered glass works here just as well and can often be framed as a traditional door with wood.
·       Mirror door - There is much to be said for the style a mirror closet door can add to your bedroom. Closet doors that incorporate mirrors into the woodwork of the door are trendy and add just the right amount of light to your room. The mirrors reflect the décor and make the room seem more spacious.
·       Curtains - Curtains and fabric provide the disguise you need for your storage and have plenty of variety in style. A rod across your closet and the curtains of your choice is all it takes to give your closet a unique and airy look.

·       Shutter doors -  You can custom design doors from shutters or purchase them and simply install them, depending on the size and design.
·       Bypass doors - Bypass closet doors are usually two standard door blanks suspended from a track with two rails—one in front of the other. The doors are slightly offset so they can overlap. 
·       Wallpaper doors - Instead of replacing your old closet doors because they no longer look good, how about you just give them a makeover? Cover them with wallpaper.
Closet doors don’t have to be boring. There are plenty of ways your closet can make a statement in your room, without sacrificing space.
