Eye Candy: 7 Gorgeous Doorless Closets

created at: 01/16/2013

Can't imagine having your bits and bobs on display? Check out these oh-so-cool doorless closets and you might change your mind. Much as the riddling racks from yesterday, they're two-fers: closets + wall art, if kept tidy. Of course that last part is the trick. But that's neither here nor there. Read on for inspiration.

This sweet space in a little girl's room (obviously). 

The floating shelves make perfect use above the rod in this nursery:


Another darling option for baby.


Lest we think naked closets only exist in the realm of wee ones....

This option is a THREE-fer, as the exposed closet also serves as a headboard.


The organic arrangement of this one is inspired.

Another back-to-nature idea:

Industrial Garment Rack from Urban Outfitters = Decor + Utility

From nature to not, this pulley system rigged up as a rod is genius...and gorgeous. (BTW, this is a commercial display.)

I never had a problem with dust or fading with my set up.  I could see the dust on items that are seldom used, which you may want to cover.  Fading wasn't a problem because my set up was on the other side of the room from the windows. I would try it without the covers/panels and see how it goes before spending the money.

I have a question for anyone that had open closet solutions in the past: how do you deal with dust and potential fading? I'm considering this, because of lack of space in my bedroom, but I'm not sure if closing the niche (where the rod with the hangers would be) with a curtain would solve anything, even though Ikea has some cute panel curtains that wouldn't look too bad...  I would really appreciate any kind of input, before I decide to reconstruct the whole thing :)

I loved my open closet. I had purchased one of the closet shelving sets from the hardware store. I set it up to its fullest length along one wall that had a small extension wall at the end. I configured the shelving pieces so that my dresser and mirror would fit in the middle. I LOVED that set up. I too wished I had taken a picture.

I had an exposed closet for years.  Constructed it out of glavanazed steel plumbing pipe attached directly to a wall, I wish I had taken a picture before we moved :( 3 tiers, pants&skirts/shirts/shirts and a long tier for dresses :) 

I learnt very quickly to be much more organized, and the big thing for me was that I now organize my clothing by colour. When you're clothing is always on display it becomes a piece of art unto itself.
