Five Budget-Friendly Closet Remodel Ideas
A fresh coat of paint
A fresh coat of paint is the quickest and most cost-effective way to make any room in your home more modern. This rule applies to your closet as well. However, don’t paint its components. These closets are most likely made from laminate rather than real wood. Laminate doesn’t take paint well, no matter what you do. Although there are many blogs that will show you how to paint laminate, the results can be temporary and your closet may end up looking worse than it was before. Instead, paint the closet walls in a complementary or contrasting color. If you are willing to put in the effort, wallpaper is an option.
Before you begin to paint, remove all adjustable shelves and closet accessories such as pull-out hampers. These can be removed and then put back after you’re done. This will make it easier and require less painters tape. The closet’s structural parts should remain in place. You should usually cover or remove the closet suspension rail. Latex paint is better than mineral spirits, which can cause damage to your closet’s finish.

Handles and other hardware can be replaced
It is the simplest and most cost-effective way to update your closet hardware. This includes knobs, handles, rods, and handles. You should replace accessories that were in their old finishes if you choose a new color or finish for the hardware. These accessories include valet poles and tie & belt racks as well as wire baskets.
You should be careful when choosing your finish as not all accessories will be available in every color. If your closet is dependent on pull-out wire baskets, you should be aware that they are only available in polished chrome, bronze, and oil rubbed brass. They will not be available in matte gold or slate finishes. You may want to change accessories if you are looking to make the transition to a metal finish but have limited accessories.
Modify the doors/drawer fronts
You can also replace the doors and drawers to make your closet more affordable. The same way you would update your kitchen’s style, you can also replace the doors and drawers in your closet. Although it is more costly than painting the handles or changing the drawer fronts, it can make a big difference in the overall look of your closet. The style of the drawers and door are what set the tone for the space. A simple flat or glass insert, as well as a paneled door can give the space a contemporary look.
You can also swap out your mid-century modern drawer and door styles for a raised panel style with old-world charm that exudes elegance and charm. You can give the same closet a traditional or contemporary look by simply changing the drawer fronts and door. For a fresh look, the closet walls were painted in a different color.
