Closet door ideas – 11 design-forward surfaces

1. Millwork Offers A Casual Yet Decorative Style

Looking for traditional dressing room ideas? Think: millwork. 'Inspired by men's suiting, the handsome custom millwork inset makes this closet functional, creates a warm and cozy feeling, and brings a sophisticated dressing room feel to the space,' says Gideon Mendelson, founder and creative director at Mendelson Group.

2. Soften A Room With Curtained Closet Doors

'Closet doors shouldn't be limited to solid or opaque materials,' says Melanie Griffiths, editor, Period Living. 'Instead, consider curtain closet ideas, which will not just bring color and pattern to the space, but can also bring diffused lighting to the space at night if you install closet lighting.'

3. Add Subtle Texture With Gessoed Doors

Closet doors can be the focal point of a walk-in space, so why not consider unusual materials? 'We source incredible materials for closet doors and this project featured cracked gesso – the creamy tones of the gesso are the perfect foil to the veined marble and rich textiles in the adjoining bathroom,’ says Fameed Khalique, founder of Fameed Khalique.

4. Choose High Gloss For A Sleek Finish

Whether you're looking for small closet ideas or want to make a small bedroom look bigger, a gloss finish can be a great choice.

5. Let In More Light With Glass Closet Doors

If you are looking to turn a room into a walk-in closet and need to bring light into the space, glazed doors can be the best solution; they can also make a smaller bedroom feel larger because you can link the spaces visually.

6. Natural Materials Offer An Artisan Quality

'These beautiful wooden closet doors with woven detailing will work with any color scheme. Investing in bespoke closet doors is a commitment but one that is worth every penny as they can bring alive a space that was previously not working. Intricate woodwork designs offer a decorative touch even in a pared back neutral space,' says Jennifer

7. Create Visual Space With An All-White Scheme

Bedroom storage ideas will create a profound impact on your space, so think carefully if your closet doors loom over your bed about the effect they will have.

8. Make Closet A Standout Feature With A Bright Color

Looking to use dramatic bedroom color ideas for impact? Why not continue that bold color on to the closet doors? 'Painting furniture that can’t be moved can transform a whole room. These doors have been painted in the same color as the walls, baseboard and floor which is an excellent way to make a massive monochromatic impact without involving too many different paint colors, techniques, or brushes (i.e. less washing up!),' says color and paint expert, Annie Sloan.

9. Introduce Rattan As New Texture

Using texture in interior design will always make a space feel more interesting, cozier and more layered. You can achieve this by choosing textural closet door materials.

10. Help A Space Feel Larger With Vertical Millwork

‘Bedrooms are often the place we go to rest and escape, a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and bespoke closets that run floor to ceiling with a plethora of storage solutions will ensure the bedroom remains clutter free.

11. Choose Mirrored Doors To Enhance A Small Space
