One of the first things we did before we moved into our one-bed, pre-war apartment, was open up our closet space. Instead of having just normal-sized doors, we had the contractor open up the doorway high as possible, to make use of the storage that went nearly up to the ceiling. The problem is that it’s really hard to make a door that big. For the bedroom, we came up with an inexpensive solution: A hospital curtain track, available at Medical Products Direct for $14. We made the curtain out of a light silk that matched the wall color, lined with a cream gauze. Add grommets to one end, and loop them into the track’s hooks, 10 for $20. Presto — now you see our messy closet — now you don’t. Click through to the next page to see more photos.
