Closets Doors - Something to Consider

Planning to remodel or building a new home? Now is a great time to think about your closet doors. Yes, we said closet doors. Often overlooked, a smart closet door choice can be icing on the cake, something that increases the functionality of your closet or an intriguing design element that enhances a room. 

One of our favorite choices is installing pocket doors.  Built to slide into the adjacent wall, pocket doors can open up smaller closets where space is at a premium and improve accessibility to clothes.

For example, in most smaller walk-in closets there is a door separating the bedroom and closet that, when opened, swings into the closet. That open closet door covers half of a wall of clothes and takes up physical space in an already restricted area. Installing a pocket door that slides into the wall will provide better visual and physical access to your clothing and free up to 10 square feet of space previously occupied by the swinging door.

Another favorite choice of ours is externally mounted sliding doors that are suspended from overhead tracks.  Choosing a visually interesting door that pulls in design elements from the room transforms your closet from ho-hum boring to an eye-catching focal point.
