If you are thinking about replacing your closet doors or buying new ones for a newly built closet, you should first learn some useful information about these important yet often neglected closet features. When people talk about interior decorating, you will not often hear them spending time discussing the doors of the closet. Sure, they know that they need to install one in the bedroom but after that, they put this topic out of their mind and move on to a new one. More often not, the closet door becomes forgotten.
It is important to pay attention to the doors of your closet especially before buying one for your bedroom needs. When buying a closet door, you have to understand the factors that need to be considered to be able to buy the right door. For example, you can choose whether to buy a folding, sliding, swinging, or standard door. You should also decide on the material—wood, plastic, mirror, or steel.
You might ask, what is so important about closet doors, anyway? Here are some of the many uses of these bedroom fixtures.
- The door of the closet provides a division between the closet and the bedroom. This will make your bedroom look more organized and less cluttered because of this division. Just imagine if you do not have a door for your closet. Your clothes will probably spill form the closet to your bedroom and everything will look like a mess. This is also beneficial if you cannot keep your closet organized.
- Another great use of the closet door is for storage. You can put hooks on at the back of the door where you can hang your belts, necklaces, bracelets, and other accessories to keep them organized. You can also hang a shoe organizer at the back where you can keep your lightweight shoes or even other pieces of clothing like socks, scarves, handkerchiefs, and underwear. You should maximize the space at the back of your closet door especially if you have limited space in your bedroom.
- Your closet door can also be a blank canvass for artwork. If you are a great artist, you can paint patterns, landscape, or themed murals on the closet door. Kids especially love to have many colors in their bedroom. A painted closet door makes the bedroom even more fun for the kids. Just make sure that you use the right kind of paint for the door material.
- You can also use the door as a message or memory board. In the kitchen, family members leave their messages, drawings, some photos, and reminders on the door of the refrigerator. In the bedroom, you can use the door of your closet in pretty much the same way you would use the fridge door. You can post reminders to yourself, photos, tickets, and other knick knacks and souvenirs that you can post on this makeshift bulletin.
These are some of the functions of closet doors that you can also do on your own closet door.
