Add Sunburst Details
Add wood detailing to bifold doors. Not only do they add an interesting visual element, but they’ll look amazing when painted in any color (even white!).
Really want to take it to another level? Paint them an amazing, bright color like these yellow doors!
If you can’t take looking at your plain, ugly closet doors anymore but don’t have the money to replace them, use paint to make them look a little more interesting.
This two-tone effect is a huge improvement and gives the doors a faux panel effect!
Add Trim Molding
These slab doors were jazzed up with panel molding trim and black handles. They’re lovely and look much more expensive than they actually were.
Unconventional is Just as Amazing
Curtains in lieu of doors are a nice touch in a girl’s room. You can keep them simple or frilly and can change them out often. I’m honestly considering this idea for my own closet!
Add a Little More Flair
See… don’t these ruffled drapes look totally romantic? This easy DIY closet door idea adds even more flair to your closet door makeover project.
Blah to Wow
I don’t know exactly how to describe these closet doors, but they give off a barn door/saloon type vibe that I absolutely love. The black handles and the gate hinges really make them. Gorgeous!
Barn Door Love
Does anyone not love modern barn doors? Here’s a stunning 4-panel barn door option for a small closet with a single door. Love!
Bi-Fold Door Transformation
To be perfectly honest, bi-fold doors drive me crazy. That said, I like this option of separating them and turning them into stunning french closet doors.
Surprise Closet Door Idea
If you like rustic, this idea is for you. Old shutters look gorgeous as closet doors. They look so rustic! (Site in Italian but Google can translate for you.)
Arches Make Everything Look Amazing
I’m a huge fan of arched doorways – and doors! Make any closet a little fancier with French doors and even better by adding frosted glass arches.
Craftsman Style Doors
This mom converted her sons’ flat bi-fold doors into these beautiful craftsman style closet doors that really stand out. Panels just make any interior door look so much better.
Encourage Art With Chalkboard Paint
Cover the doors in chalkboard paint to give your child a fun canvas on which to create every day. This is a great idea for kitchen and pantry closet/cabinet doors, too, because you can write a menu, grocery list, etc. on them as needed.
An Ornate Option
A painted ceiling medallion gives these closet doors an ornate, European look that certainly no one would call boring.
Bi-fold Barn Doors
These are bi-fold doors that look like barn doors. In a room where it’s impractical to have sliding or out-swinging doors, this is really an attractive option.
Any Fixer Upper fan would love these shiplap doors with modern handles. Shiplap french closet doors look very chic and are a great closet door idea for transforming bi-fold doors into french doors.
Fabric Closet Doors
These fabric covered closet doors can add dimension to a room. See how the texture of the fabric just adds a really neat element of visual interest? Incredible.
Pop of Color
Turn your closet doors into an accent wall! The bold pop of color here is absolutely stunning, and you can re-paint them whenever you’d like to accent your room in a different color.
Pallet Barn Door
And finally, if you have an old pallet lying around, use the wood to create your own sliding pallet closet door.
And if you love pallets (who doesn’t?), you’ll love these other pallet projects!
I never realized how much of an impact the closet can have on a room. Whether you just want to change the color of the door, of give it a new look entirely, one of these ideas is sure to freshen up the feel of your home.
