How We Removed Our Linen Closet Door To Make It More Opened

When I saw a picture of shelves and baskets openly on my friend’s WhatsApp status I was so curious about it. The next thing that comes to my mind is the linen closet door of our bathroom. I was thinking of removing the door which turns it looks freely opened.

We think of using a kind of stylish baskets to restructure and turn our tight (inconvenient) closet to perfect functional shelving that can be open well without the issue of being claustrophobic just like it is now.

I think the reason why the closet door is not working perfectly for us is maybe the bathroom door and linen closet door are so tight (there is not enough distance between them) and as a result of that, there must be always serious war among them.

You might realize that I was the only one handling the work; dear wife is busy with something else there. I removed anything that might show that there is a door before. I caulk each of the holes (both the screws and mistakenly created ones). I also removed the latch of the door.

I painted the wall of the bathroom’s soothing tan to the nook using the same color (Glidden’s Sand White) it was before. I realized that the frame of the door and even the shelves need to be painted too and I did that immediately with a crisp glossy white.

I didn’t buy another new basket, rather use the ones there before (they are basically used for sheets and towels and even added some sort of storage alternatives which are (two white Ikea planters for nail polish and toothbrushes).

The toilet paper looks beautiful in the new place I changed for it. We got two more baskets which be kept on the closet floor and it will use to keep towels.

Here we come to the end of the linen closet doors, what is your view over this? Can you do it yourself too? Though am not sure if anyone loves the open closet, can you live it with or do you think the door close ones is better since something might be kept secret without exposing out publicly?
