Just an idea for door alternatives

I saw a post from a few days ago about alternatives to accordian doors.
When I bought my house it had a large closet with hideous sliding doors. It took threw them all away, but a pole inside (using a pipe, which I painted with a Rustoleom paint) and hung curtains (which my mother made with super fabric, but could be store bought). Now that wall almost looks like it has a row of windows. It's very easy to push back the curtains, and it looks great. It also gives the flexibility to easily change the look of the room. I'm sorry I don't have any photos of it.
Ikea also sells these panel systems where you can hang a panel down from the ceiling

Help/Advice - Inexpensive 8ft tall closet doors

I need help/advice finding an inexpensive closet door solution for 8' x 8' closet (96" x 96"). I am in the process of remodeling my condo and all of my closet doors are 8ft tall, which is not standard and therefore very expensive (best price I could find was for hollow core, six panel, bi-fold doors, for about $400 after taxes/delivery/paint. I would like to find a solution that would cost $200 (and preferrably less than that) and be not extremely time consuming. I do not want to build down the wall, as I have done this already in other rooms and it is very time consuming and the money saved is not enough to be worth it

  • Avatar broklee rob Sliding closet doors..... how much?
    Jan 11, 2009 by broklee rob | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I want to replace my current closet doors with 2 sliding mirror doors. The exact measurement of my closet is 75" x 95". Because of my lack of knowledge on these things, I am afraid of getting ripped off. So before I go talking to any salesmen, I would like to get an idea of how much this would cost. Any ideas? Any suggestions? (PS: I live in NYC).

    • As others have said, call Home Depot or Lowes, you've got 2 HD's in Manhattan & others in the surrounding boroughs. Lowes is less populated & none that I know of in Manhattan yet.

      Any installations …ng for their top installation contractor, you will have a better chance of not having any problems later.

      However, if you don't mind a floor track, it would be possible to use a bottom tracked door system.
