As much as I love, love, love our current flat (and wish we could have it for always as a perfect city pied-à-terre!), we’ve outgrown it and for a while we’ve been looking for the perfect new rented home that offers a different set of compromises (there’s always a compromise, right?!).
The new place is still teeny, but it’s a two-bedroom house with a sweet little garden. I’ll share lots and lots more details after we move at the end of October.
For today, I wanted to ask your opinions on curtains vs. doors on closets. We have a huge (to us!) built in cupboard in the main bedroom. It’s currently lacking in any interior organisation, but I’m planning to change that.
I think it’s what you’d call a double closet and it has real doors, not bifold. So imagine it’s like this (but wider and shabbier):

The thing is, the doors will likely take up ALL of the useable floor space in the bedroom (except for the bed). So I’m considering swapping them for curtains and putting the doors under the bed for now.

But, I know that the back of the closet doors would be great for hooks and shoe organisers and the like, so although the doors mean losing useable floor space outside the closet, they might mean that every last bit of clothing etc will fit IN the closet.
I just wondered if anyone had any opinions / experience about what might work better? I know it’s a long shot without pictures of our actual space, but maybe you tried out curtains and they were annoying / changed your life?
Let me know in the comments!
