Ideas For Your Closet Doors

In my daughter’s bedroom, we have a set of sliding mirrored doors on her closet. They are very basic,  from The Home Depot. I’ve been wanting to do something with them for a while now. I want to keep the mirrors because those are the most used mirrors in the house. But I need to amp up the style.

While searching the web for inspiration, I found plenty. So much so, that I wanted to keep track of them all. I’ve included all closet door ideas here, not just mirrored.

This one is my favorite,  I love the trim. I would need a very thin trim to pull off this look because my doors slide over one another. (Update: I found a way to mimic this look with amazing results, see my closet door makeover here!)

In the next photo, the mirrors were given an antiqued look. I’ve been noticing a lot of this antiqued mirror style around. The 2015 Dream Home even has this in the master bath. You can achieve this look with some paint stripper and muriatic acid. Read the full how-to here.

Sliding barn doors and bypass doors are also great space savers. They are a good alternative to pocket doors. You can see how we built our own sliding barn door for less here.

At Beneath My Heart, they removed the ugly existing doors and replaced them with these. She found 2 flat panel doors at a Habitat store and added the molding and decorative hardware. Such a great idea!

Or you can lose the doors altogether and use beautiful curtain panels instead.
