Closet Makeover Tips to help you get the best out of your closet transformation

Revamping and remodelling your closet or wardrobe space is the perfect way to modernise your bedroom and give it a completely new, fresh look. At times we seem to put up with an old, messy, disorganised closet—this might be partly due to we’re simply not sure how to boost our storage spaces to their full potential!

An organised, modernised closet space can provide a sense of peace and harmony in your home, improve your sleep and make life less stressful. When everything has its place, the room looks beautiful and it’s easy to find what you need, you’ll spend less time in the morning worrying or organising and more time focusing on looking great!

If you’re looking for expert closet transformation ideas, one of the simplest ways to revamp your closet space and enhance its overall style is to add new doors. Since closets sometimes take up an entire wall, the doors are an important part of the first impression your room will give. Choosing the right doors will determine how you feel when you enter your bedroom or wake up in the morning.

It’s not easy to decide which colour of doors you should pick, let alone which styles and sizes you should choose. Thankfully, Doors Plus makes it easy by offering a wide range of styles to suit everyone’s tastes and budget, with free measurements and quotes available for every customer, as well as easy delivery and installation.

Read on to learn more about our top suggestions for transforming and modernising your closet space.

Achieving the perfect walk-in closet makeover

One great option for a large or small closet makeover is Shaker doors. Presented in a sophisticated, classic style inspired by the popular “Hamptons” interior design philosophy, these doors are timelessly simple. Lacking any trendy carvings, mouldings or embellishments, Shaker doors offer an understated look, and will flow perfectly with any other design elements found in your home.

Dating back to the 18th century, Shaker furniture has been known throughout history for reflecting notions of minimalism, function and simplicity. If flow and consistency are important to you, Shaker doors are worth serious consideration for your closet makeover.

Available in traditional and contemporary styles, Shaker doors are versatile and will slot seamlessly into any bedroom design. They’re a fantastic choice for walk-in wardrobes, with embedded mirrors making them perfect for any bedroom or dressing room space.

Shaker doors are available in a range of widths, sizes and designs, so they can be tailored to suit any bedroom or closet space, both aesthetically and functionally. Doors Plus also offers a large range of customisation options, allowing you to choose from solid panels, clear glass or sleek mirror panels. It’s all up to you—you have the power to choose the perfect look for your home.

For even further customisation, you can choose pre-painted white doors that’ll perfectly suit any bedroom or living space. Alternatively, Doors Plus will pre-prime your doors, ready for you to paint any colour you like.

Enjoy country-style warmth and comfort with barn doors

Bring a sense of country comfort into your home with barn doors. Doors Plus offers an exclusive range of Glengary™ barn doors in a variety of designs to suit any interior design style.

A great space-saving option, barn doors slide against the wall across a horizontal bar installed above the doorway. In this way, Glengary™ barn doors are an excellent choice for closet spaces, the kitchen, or more, providing the perfect balance of aesthetic appeal and functionality. To access your clothes, shoes and accessories, simply slide the door across. It couldn’t be easier!

If you love on-trend choices, barn doors are the way to go, adding a serious sense of style and unforgettable character to any room. Barn doors come in a range of styles and colours, so whether you’re going for rustic ambience or contemporary warmth, you’ll find something to suit your tastes in Doors Plus’s extensive range of barn doors.

Sliding barn doors are also a wonderful choice for any small closet remodel, especially where the room doesn’t have much space around the closet door. Since sliding doors move horizontally rather than opening outwards, you don’t have to worry about the doors taking up precious floor space.

Made from 100% pacific ash timber, Glengary™ barn doors give off earthy, natural vibes, with the unique, aesthetically-pleasing appearance only natural timber products can provide. To help your barn door blend seamlessly with the rest of your home decor, try painting it white for a rustic but modern look.

If you’d prefer a different style of door, any of Doors Plus’s interior door designs can fit on the barn door tracks, including stainless steel, composite and other timber styles. This means space-saving storage solutions are achievable regardless of which door style you prefer.

Choose sliding doors for space-saving luxury

Sliding doors aren’t just limited to the barn door style. Doors Plus offers a range of stylish sliding doors for internal use, in engineered timber or composite styles. Optional glass panelling is also available, which can add a sense of volume and spaciousness to your closet space, and allow you to peek in as you’re deciding what to wear.

Choose Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) sliding doors, and you’ll have robust and durable doors that will last for years to come. As an added bonus, you can choose to have your doors pre-painted white for an all-encompassing style, or pre-primed for you to paint any colour you choose. Customisation is key!

Doors Plus offers a free measure and quote on any door you choose, so you can be sure your new sliding doors will fit your closet space without worrying about losing money.

Transform your bedroom space with mirrored closet doors

For a truly Instagram-worthy closet before and after look, mirrored doors are the ideal choice. Mirrored doors add a sense of space and volume to small bedrooms, and provide unmissable functionality.

To amplify natural light and beautify your bedroom space, mirrored doors are the way to go. By incorporating a full-length mirror into your closet door, you’ll save on precious floor space, and can easily reflect on your look while standing right by your closet.

As always, Doors Plus offers unbeatable flexibility and customisation options. Whether you’d prefer to have your mirrors on the inside of your closet door, or embedded on the outside of your sliding door panels, we’ve got you covered. By including a mirror on the interior side of a hinged wardrobe door, for example, you can easily hide the mirror away, allowing the door to blend seamlessly with the entirety of the wardrobe, and other doors in your home.

Mirrored doors don’t have to be limited to just the bedroom—why not try installing a mirror for a hallway closet makeover or entryway cupboard makeover? This way, it’s easier than ever to do that final check-over before you leave the house.

Mirrors can be combined with any style of door, including the Shaker style, so no matter your tastes, you can enjoy a wonderful blend of beauty and functionality.

What’s the process of revamping my closet space?

Revamping your closet space is a complex process, starting with listing your expectations and selecting a door and ending with the final installation. Thankfully, the Doors Plus team takes the hassle away by handling all of the dirty work, so your next closet transformation journey will be simpler and easier than ever.

If you’re not sure which doors to choose, or have a few favourites but haven’t settled down on a final decision, Doors Plus can help. Our trained staff are experienced in installing all kinds of doors, including closet doors, and we guarantee only the best service for our customers.

We provide free measures and quotes on all of our doors, so you can be sure all measurements will be accurate, and you’ll have a good idea of which door types will suit your budget.

So how does it all work?

Step one, think about what you’d like to get out of your new closet space

How much room do you have available? Is it a small or large closet? Would you prefer a classic or more contemporary style? What materials would be best for your needs?

Write your answers to these questions down on a list, and have a chat with your partner, roommate or family member to make sure you’re all on the same page. If you can’t decide on a style, consider a versatile option such as Shaker doors. A neutral colour, such as white, is a great option if you’re not sure about your colour scheme.


For materials, timber or composite doors are generally the best choices for closets. They’re long-lasting, stable and able to withstand the regular opening and closing that closet doors typically endure.

Once you’ve answered all of the above questions, it’s time to move onto the next step.

Step two, check online.

Now you’ve got a general idea of what you’d like for your new closet space, it’s time to check what’s available. Doors Plus has a range of closet door styles available to suit everyone’s tastes and budget—so it’s simply a matter of choosing what works for you! Whether you’d prefer hinged doors, sliding doors, Shaker doors or mirrored doors, you’ll find what you need here.

Select a few styles that you think will suit your closet plans, then move onto the next step.

Step three, visit any Doors Plus showroom near you.

There are a lot of designs to choose from, so make sure you’ve completed the first two steps first, and have a general idea of what you’re looking for. You’ll save a lot of time walking around the showroom this way.

You now have the opportunity to check out your favourite styles in person, so have a good look over them. Check what the design looks like in real life, the texture and the size, and think about if it will still work for your closet space at home.

If you’re still having trouble with your selection, Doors Plus provides one-on-one consultations in the store for all potential customers. It can feel overwhelming to decide which door style will work best for your closet redesign and gel well with the rest of the furniture in your house. Thankfully, our design experts know what works, and may make suggestions that you wouldn’t otherwise consider.

The Doors Plus team will happily guide you through all the different kinds of materials and designs as you shop, explaining the benefits and drawbacks of each, so you’ll be fully equipped to decide which door style will work best for your closet remodel.

Once you’ve settled on a door style you like, let one of the friendly Doors Plus team members know. It’s then time to move onto the next step.

Step four – benefit from a free measure and quote

if you cannot decide on the day of your showroom visit, you can arrange for one of Doors Plus’s fully trained and qualified consultants to visit your home for a completely free measure and quote of your closet door space. This way, you’ll have a clear idea of what style and size of door will work for you without draining your bank account or wasting your time fluffing around with measuring tape!

Step five, obtain the quote

Once the measurement is complete, you’ll receive a quote, and if you have opted for installation, the quote will be inclusive of the service. This makes budget planning easier than ever, and you’re guaranteed a door that fits great.

If the quote works for you, it’s time to purchase your door solution. You can choose to have your door pre-primed, ready for you to choose your own colours and organise your own painted, or pre-painted in a smooth, even white colour. All doors will be painted or primed by the Doors Plus team prior to delivery, so they’re prepped and ready for installation. Fully finished doors are also available for purchase at the Doors Plus showroom.

Now you have your door—but how are you going to get it to your house? It’s not easy to fit a large door into a small car! Well, that’s all explained in the next step.

Step six, it’s time for home delivery!

Many of the doors from the extensive Doors Plus range are too large to fit into even the biggest of family vehicles, and this is especially true if you’re hoping to transport multiple doors at the one time.

Thankfully, Doors Plus is committed to making the door-buying process smooth and easy for everyone. Once you’ve spoken with a trained expert and selected your favourite style of door, the Doors Plus team will happily handle the rest of the process. There’s no need to worry about hiring an oversized vehicle or strapping the doors to your car.

Regardless of the door style and material—be it timber, glass, aluminium or composite—the Doors Plus team have the expertise needed to deliver your new doors to your home safely and scratch-free, every time. They’ll handle all of the heavy lifting, so all you have to do is sit back, relax and watch the magic happen!
