Open Closet or Add Door?
love2browse
January 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My master bedroom closet is accessed through the master bathroom. I wanted more hanging space, so I purchased Ikea's PAX Wardrobes. I needed to remove the door to the closet in order to make it work. I added mirror doors to the fronts. There's only 27" of space between the units. I'm about to remodel my bathroom and want to include the reworking the closet to make it feel more spacious. The closet is above the garage and has a 12-5 pitch ceiling. I plan on recessing the closet 2', if I don't have any structural issues. I may be able to modify the wardrobes by cutting an angle at the top to make them fit, but may not be able to use the mirror doors. Should I leave the wardrobes open or should I have new doors made?

I think you need to have a door. You have green in you're bedroom and orange in the walk in closet.
So yes, i say you need a door

You need to be concerned about steam, sprays, perfume, etc. that will settle onto and be absorbed into your clothing. You can use doors, ventilation or a combination of both.

The room will be painted BM Richmond Bisque once remodeled. Just noticed last nit how awful the green looks with the wood tone in the picture! We have a his and her master bathrooms. Mine only has a tub, so steam is not an issue. Thanks for the input !

i might like to see the closet (orange) inside the closet painted same color as bedrm wall to make more spacious look.
Basically because there seems to be enough rm to put items out of site so no cluttered look just spacious.

If I can recess the low cabinets, I plan on turning the tall cabinet against the sloped wall so you the sides would be hidden. If it has to stay, I like the idea of painting.

Do you walk through the bathroom to get to the closet? If that's the case I would open up the closet and use the PAX system as your closure. There's really no need any longer for a closed room with storage systems. This is one of our projects with the closet accessed through the bathroom. However, we added a pocket door since it was a steam shower, but it wasn't necessary with the venting.

I agree with Woodcliffe Design and others. A nice enclosed closet would be more visually pleasing every time you walk through this area to the bathroom.

Would love to do Woodcliffe Design recommendation, but I would want it to be done in cherry and that's not in the budget at this time. I'm going to do closed storage, I just needed the confirmation. Thanks All!
