If you have a closet door, you’ve probably cursed at it before. They tend to be heavy, constantly out of alignment and basically unattractive. This customer, in Reno NV, contacted us to replace the sliding closet doors that had been installed in this closet.
As you can see from the photos, the clothing that is hanging is on the far right and left of the closet and access would be difficult to access for a young person. When the client called us, they were originally looking for draperies, but after diagnosing the situation, I suggested that they do the Averte Shade, by Horizons Window Fashions. (this is not the Horizon company that is in Reno, NV)
Here are the reasons that I suggested the Averte for their closet door. The stack is small. The panel can be taken completely from one side to the other, based on how I configured it. The rail that the child will be grabbing is stained wood, so it is more resistant to staining.
The natural material was a nice complement to their design in the room. The costs were very reasonable. So, based on all of these considerations, the client chose the Averte for their closet door. They are extremely pleased with how it turned out for them.
Finding the Best Solutions for Your Situation
This blog is less about closet doors than it is the process of choosing window treatments for your home. As a window fashions expert, I tend to challenge people’s perceptions of what they think they want. For example, on a recent job, the client told me that they wanted roller shades and my first question was “Why?”. I needed to know that they had thought out the whole process. In that case, they hadn’t, and we were able to help them look through the entire situation and make a better choice. The client with the closet door asked for my help and was willing to adjust her expectations and really liked the solution that we came up with.
