Unique Mirror Closet Doors
Bi-fold mirrored closet doors may look good and save space, but there are so many other options out there. Think about your budget and what design elements you can incorporate into your mirrored closet door. Chances are, you can come up with something unique that will completely change your room. Start by thinking about framing materials and glass finishes.
Unique Framing Materials
Any mirror can be framed with fun materials for a creative touch. Here are some of our favorite mirror framing techniques:
- Use weathered wood, black steel or shiplap to create a frame for the mirror. This is an excellent way to carry color or design accents into the room without being overbearing.
- Whitewash wood for a rustic look. Use this technique on an outdated mirror or even a picture frame.
- If you’re looking for an industrial look, spray raw steel frames with vinegar to encourage rust. Once the metal looks good to you, apply a clear coat to keep the rust from rubbing or flaking off.
- You can even go with a frameless design if you’re looking for a minimalistic look. Just be sure the mounting hardware you buy is compatible with the mirror. It’s simplest to buy a mirror that is pre-drilled to hang by itself.
Barn-Style Mirrored Doors
Hanging a mirror on barn door track hardware – or on the back of a barn-style door – is a great option for any ranch-style house or farmhouse. If the other mirrors in your home have weathered wood frames, you have a complete, rustic look.
Mirror with a Patina Finish
For that worn-in feel, many people love the look of a mirror with a patina finish.
For visual separation and geometric design elements, use window grilles on the mirror. You can purchase window grille kits and custom-fit them to the mirror for your own unique mirror design. Try to match the windows grilles to the design of your current windows to keep the theme cohesive.
How to Source Materials
Scraps left over from a construction project or remodel can sometimes provide just the right amount of materials to make your own custom mirrored door. Otherwise, you can get creative by looking at local stores that re-purpose building materials and sell them at a discount.
If you want to start from scratch, go to your local hardware store. They should be able to provide advice, tools and materials for your own custom mirrored door. While you’re there, look at the mirrored doors they’re selling. You’ll get some inspiration and design cues.
Mirrored Doors on More Than Closets
