@MrsJVP:  I used an ivory curtain over the closet in our last house. I don’t have any pictures, though, sorry. I don’t know what your style is, but I think you can easily find a set of curtains that would look nice.

I wouldn’t use a shower curtain because it would fall down constantly from you tugging on the drapes. Use a regular drapery rod that you screw in and some pretty drapes.

My cousin had this problem. she found a cute lace shower curtain. that might be too girly for Darling Husband, it would be for mine. I would get some ikea curtains or plain fabric for now. something cheap and pretty until you decide colors.

I had a small closet with no door (doorway was the size of a regular door) and I bought cheap Roman blinds at Ikea. I kept them up most of the time, though, and only closed them when people came over. I thought it looked a little more finished that a plain curtain, but I think it was more annoying to pull the string up and down.

I have drapes/curtain panels on a rod instead of closet doors in our bedroom!  That’s how our house came when we bought it last summer and we haven’t changed it.  I don’t have any pics, but they are just cream coloured and quite thick.  I don’t mind them.

I did this in my bathroom linen closet because it’s a small space and the door ws too big and opened the wrong way. I used a $3 curtain rod from the hardware store and a rod pocket window panel my Mom mailed up to me that she wasn’t using. It looks totally fine, but one day I’m going to replace it with a fun patterned panel once I decide on some bathroom decor.

Ikea has fabric panels on a sliding track system that would work well.

What about those beads curtains? They are super cool! Of course they make noise every time you move them….

I second the Ikea panel curtains on the sliding track.  If you google around a little, there are some good pictures online.  I think Apartment Therapy showed one that I really liked.  I think we’ll be doing this in our bedroom because it’s very small and the bifold doors take up space inside the room.  I thought about putting bypass doors instead but then you can only get to half the closet at a time.

@MrsJVP:  Those are not hard to install. I did ours. That ad I posted is an incredible buy.
