I’ve always wanted to use a curtain in place of a closet door.
So far, I haven’t taken the plunge, but I’ve been looking around for some inspiration. Here’s some of what I’ve found.
It’s hard not to love the closet at right from West Elm.
I think the curtains on this closet truly add another layer of design to the space, although we can’t see it in the larger context of the room.
Still, it’s just beautiful, especially that punch of orange at the back of the closet!
In the photo below from Apartment Therapy, the homeowners added a curtain across a wall to essentially create a closet in a small space. The result is truly amazing and look at all that space!
I also like the gauzy look of the curtains used in front of the closet below from MyHomeIdeas.com.
I think the curtain is especially great in the kids room at right I found at Better Homes and Gardens.
This red and white curtain is so cute and fits right in with the overall theme. Plus, the kids in this room won’t be getting any fingers caught in the closet door when they’re playing.
It looks like it was probably custom-made for the room. Adorable!
I found another kids room – this one designed by Candice Olsen – that uses a curtain rather than a closet door but has a completely different look.
The custom cornice board adds a regal look to the pretty striped drape.
Here are a couple more curtains in kids’ rooms.
I love this nursery photo from Sherry & John Petersik at Young House Love.
Sherry made this curtain from a bolt of beautiful fabric she found at an oulet store. She also used it to make curtains for the room’s one window.
They look beautiful and you can see the how-to post here.
Finally, I really love the photo below from a nursery on the Censational Girl blog.
Kate, a bargain hunter and DIYer, created the great space.
“My daughter’s closet got the royal treatment with a fresh striped paint treatment on the wall,” she said. “And then I added some swaged beaded velvet curtains to replace the old closet doors.”
I think it looks beautiful.
