Help with ugly and annoying closet doors

becky2010January 16, 2013
We have three closets like this in our apartment, and I hate them. Not only do they not work because it's a tight space, but they are just ugly. Because the opening is so huge, I can't think of a low cost solution (curtains, etc). Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you!

Arg! I think as a minimum, I'd paint the bifold doors the same color as the wall and use a cream pull so it disappears. Where the phone is, I'd draw attention, maybe a fake hanging plant. Plain light switch plate, no phone, use cell or wireless. If you have to have the phone there, then it could be a work of art.
To balance out the door heights and make the eye look up to enlarge the space, I'd put scrolly things there or 3 small framed graphic pictures or signs like "life's a beach"
