Closet Doors VS Closet Curtains
Closets are used to have large sliding doors. Sometimes they look ugly. They also only let you see one side of the closet at a time. Removing closet doors will make the closet open and it will make the room look cluttered and full. You need a way to close off the closet without causing problems, something cheap and easy too.
Closet curtains are the perfect solution. They add a nice texture to the room, and make the room look a little bigger. You can easily get into your closet and easily close it up again. Either way, it looks nice.
Replace Closet Doors with Closet Curtains out of sheets
After researching the price of curtains and realizing that I need to hem them anyway, I decided to make my own out of twin flat sheets. Twin sheets were the perfect width and the already-hemmed edges made sewing the curtains a snap. It was as simple as sewing a casing for the rod, hemming, and adding a bit of jumbo ric-rac to make them pretty. I purchased white shower curtain rods to hang them.
For those interested, here is a quick tutorial for making closet curtains out of bed sheets.
- Power drill with a very small drill bit
- 3/4″ aluminum rod
- 2 flat twin-size bed-sheets in your chosen color.
- 2 packages of ring clips
- Pair of spring clip brackets
1: Measure the opening of your closet. Add 12 inches. Then cut the pipe using a pipe cutter or saw.
2: Take a bracket and hold it on the wall in line with the vertical trim of the doorway, and so that it is as close to the ceiling as possible while still allowing room for your drill. Mark the holes of the bracket with a pencil and measure their location. Repeat the marking process on the other side.
4: Change out the bit on your drill to a phillips and drill the screws into place.
5: Put one end of the rod into its bracket. Move to the other side but before putting that end into its bracket, put all your ring clips onto the rod except for 2 of them. The remaining two ring clips go on the ends of the rod–this will keep the end of the curtain anchored, hidden behind the trim even as you move it back and forth, if you know what I mean.
6: Attach the clips to the curtain (sheet) at even intervals.
