Closet Door Curtains
Closet Clues - A big closet is nice, but if it doesn't deliver the right kind of storage for your wardrobe, it can still fall flat. Take a detailed inventory of the number of hanging clothes, bulky sweaters, folded items, shoes, and accessories you need to store. Then reconfigure your closet with shelves, drawers, and rods that fit your needs. If awkward bifold doors make it hard to access the corners of your closet, take them off and hang drapery panels instead.
Using a small bookshelf turned outward and a curtain, why not create a closet in a nook or behind a door? Making sure to anchor the bookcase to the wall for stability, you could mount a hanging rod across the allotted space and disguise it with a curtain. If the bookcase is not sturdy enough to attach the hanging rack to, simply add a wall-mounted rod, like this one from Improvements.

Laundry -- Despite their heavy workload, laundry rooms are often squeezed into small spaces where clutter can make the space feel even more cramped. To give the room a more spacious feel, replace closet doors with simple canvas curtains that slide neatly out of the way when open. Above the washer and dryer, mount a storage shelf for laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and stain removers.
Get rid of the closet doors and replace them with curtains. We did this in the kids rooms and the playroom because they had ugly old sliding doors. It not only looks great but its easy for the kids to get in and out of the closet. Really opens up the room as well!
Over the "curtain rod" storage: I don't have extra closet space or even doors to hang one of these, so I thought I was going to be left out of this nifty storage. A curtain rod? Oh, my. I do have windows, and other spaces where a rod and organizer can hang.
