Barn Door Hardware for Closets

Do you get along with your closet? You know, you want to spend time around it. It’s working for you. My closet and I have never gotten along well. I’ve tried to fix the relationship. I installed an Elfa system from The Container Store. But our relationship is in troubled waters again. I rarely visit the closet any more. My clothes and I are spending much more time with a freestanding hanging rack, the ironing board, a chair …

How did it get to this?

The sliding doors are the problem!

It’s a reach-in closet, about 10 feet long, with four sliding doors. You can see only a small slice of the closet at any time. Outfits I want to put together are often behind different doors. I can’t see everything all at once. Agh! Do you have the same frustration with sliding closet doors?

What about barn door hardware?

And with fabric attached to vertical wood strips? So the “doors” are collapsible? They’ll fold to nothing and I’ll see the entire closet at once.

If you like this idea too, here’s some styles of barn door hardware, and where you can get it at an affordable price …
