Got a home with outdated mirrored closet doors? You don't have to live with them, even if you don't have the funds to replace them.
A client once hired me to revamp her master closet and dressing area, in preparation for putting her home on the market. She was a savvy homeowner who planned to invest in a few key updates in order to make her property (which was built in the early 70's) as appealing as possible to buyers. This area of her home had several great features. But one feature that would NOT appeal to buyers was a set of floor-to-ceiling mirrored closet doors.
In order to stage this space properly for resale, those doors had to go. Since her budget would not allow for new doors, we explored several options for dealing with outdated mirrored closet doors.

Ikea’s panel curtains are often used as an updating tool to replace vertical blinds. BUT…they can also be used as a room divider, as well as door substitute (to hide open storage areas). Ikea offers 18 different panel designs, ranging in price from $4.99 to $14.99 per panel.
Like it has for so many other organizing and DIY projects, Ikea came to the rescue with a low-cost solution for my client’s design dilemma. When I showed her this option, she was immediately smitten with it! For this particular project, the total cost of panels and hardware came to around $80…significantly less than new doors.
