These are five affordable closet remodeling ideas you can do yourself. These closet renovation ideas will instantly transform your closet without costing a fortune.
Fresh coats of paint
The quickest and most cost-effective method to modernize any room in your house is to paint it. The same applies to your closet. But, you shouldn’t paint the closet. These closets are likely made of laminate, not real wood. No matter what you do, laminate doesn’t like paint. There are many blogs that show how to paint laminate. However, these results may not last long and your closet might look worse than before. You should paint your closet walls in a complementary color or contrasting one. Wallpaper is an option if you’re willing to work hard.
Remove all closet accessories, such as pull-out hampers and adjustable shelves, before you start to paint. You can remove them and put them back once you are done. This will make the process easier and less time-consuming. All closet structural components should be left in place. Covering or removing the closet suspension rail should be done in most cases. Mineral spirits can cause harm to the finish of your closet, so latex paint is better than mineral spirit.
To give this closet a modern update, you can paint its back wall a deep grey.
Hardware and handles can be replaced
This is the easiest and most cost-effective method to upgrade your closet hardware. You can replace knobs, handles and rods as well as handles. If you are replacing accessories in their original finishes, it is best to choose a different color or finish for the hardware. Accessories include wire baskets, tie and belt racks, valet poles, and tie & Belt Racks.
Be careful when selecting your finish, as not all accessories are available in every color. You should know that pull-out wire baskets are not available in all finishes. They can only be purchased in polished chrome, bronze and oil rubbed Brass. They are not available in matte or slate finishes. If you want to transition to a metallic finish, but have limited accessories, it is possible to modify your accessories.
Modify the drawer fronts/doors
To make your closet more cost-effective, you can also replace its doors and drawers. You can replace the drawers and doors in your closet just as you would change the style of your kitchen. It is more expensive than changing the drawer fronts or painting the handles, but it can really improve the look of your closet. The space’s tone is set by the style of the door and drawers. The space can have a modern look with a simple flat insert or glass insert as well as a paneled front.
You can also change your mid-century modern drawer or door styles to a raised panel style that exudes elegance. The drawer fronts and doors can be changed to give the closet a modern or traditional look. The closet walls were painted a new color to give it a fresh look.
