1. Glass Pocket Door
Pocket doors are one of the most common types of closet doors. This is a great option for those who need to save on space since the door slides into the wall to open and doesn’t need to swing outward. While typical pocket doors can be a bit drab and predictable, mixing things up by choosing a glass pocket door is a great option! A glass pocket door makes space feel open and airy and adds a unique touch you’ll love every time you enter the room.
If you’re wanting to save money, a curtain is an excellent alternative that can serve as a unique closet door. Curtains are a great way to hide what’s in your closet, and they can easily be pulled back whenever you’re ready to take something out. This is a great option for a kid’s bedroom, as even the youngest of kids can open a curtain. Shop for window curtains or shower curtains, or have your curtains custom made to perfectly fit the closet. Guests will love your inventive style—or they might even think a window is hiding behind the curtain.
3. Bi-Fold Doors
Bi-fold doors are one of the most common types of closet doors and for good reason. These types of doors are functional because they allow you to access your whole closet at once, and they often look more polished than a pocket door or curtain. Want to install bi-fold doors with a twist? Try painting a unique design on the doors, or paint the whole door a bold color.
4. Frosted Doors
(see 3-panel Glass Barn Door)
Like glass doors, frosted closet doors are the perfect way to open up a smaller bedroom, especially when it allows light to stream through a walk-in closet with the door closed. A plain glass door may have you worried about keeping the closet clean since the contents can be seen from the outside. However, you can eliminate this predicament by choosing frosted doors, which give you the best of both worlds. Frosted doors will help to open up space and let in light, but your clothes and other belongings won’t be totally visible from the outside.
5. Chalkboard Paint Door

Chalkboard paint is being used for all kinds of purposes these days, from bedroom walls to dressers. So why not add it to a closet door? A chalkboard paint door will be a truly unique addition to any room, but it’s an especially fun option for a child’s room. Pick up some chalk and let the door be a place to express creativity, write a to-do list, or put up a favorite quote.
6. Sliding Barn Door

Sliding barn doors are a unique statement that works with a variety of interior design styles, from modern farmhouse to industrial. These doors are so versatile, they can be installed on kitchen pantries or even over sliding doors to the backyard. Pick from distressed wood styles or try a paneled barn door to suit the style of your bedroom. There are endless options when it comes to sliding barn doors for your closet.
7. Mirror Closet Door
(See Modern Mirror Barn Door)
Mirrored closet doors were popular in decades of the past, but they’re making a comeback in a new way. Mirrored closets are functional and practical—they can make a room feel bigger and also reflect light to brighten up a darker room. Look for modern mirror closet doors that showcase a panel of mirrors, or try a door that has a full-length mirror.
