Shutters for Closet Doors
The following is a true story from a man frustrated with his kids’ sliding doors. He doesn’t need to be in this situation. There is a better option. You can use high quality shutters for closet doors instead.
“Several times in the past I’ve had these frustrating sliding doors on my kids closets. Honestly, it’s a terrible piece of engineering. The bracket on the floor never contains the doors. They feel pressure from my kids not hanging their clothes properly. Then, held in place by that flimsy plastic they finally press forward and break free of the ground bracket. The ground bracket, no longer protected by the door becomes a hazard for me to step on. Yes, it’s painful. The rollers across the top aren’t meant to slide at an angle and so the cheap metal involved begins to twist. Eventually the malformed metal causes the rollers to break free. I keep rehanging the doors, both of them. I do it over and over. But now that the plastic and metal is weakened they never hang right again. The top slides off every time you slide the door now and the base is never on. This has happened at 3 separate houses now. All three were the same mechanism.”
It’s common to be frustrated with these kinds of closet doors. We wish to discuss the alternative. We would recommend high quality plantation shutters. It’s a little more complicated than old DIY shutters. For this project you’ll want to get an experienced blind and shutter company. We’ll be able to help you put together the best plan. Here are a few things to consider first before you call us:
Do you want the shutters to just be a room divider? That means it would be free standing and not connected to the walls. Or would you like them as solid doors of the closet? Most people choose doors. If so, do you want them to swing out or in? What color do you want? What size should each shutter be? Don’t worry if you don’t know exactly with all of these. We’ll be able to come to your home and help you understand your options and measure everything. To get started call: (602) 418-1429
