I hate mirrored sliding closet doors. Are there better options?

I'm lucky enough to have a two-door front-hall closet, but I hate its mirrored sliding doors. Are there chicer options out there?

I so agree that cheap doors in an entrance are just wrong (I bet those mirrored doors also come with a nasty track and horrible trim).

The material of the doors isn't the problem; it's the execution. A pair of beautiful bevelled mirror doors with exposed ball hinges and stunning polished-nickel handles are a totally different story. Another option is to install two French doors with a linen finish in the panels, which would give the appearance of a piece of furniture.

Since you have the space, removing the closet and replacing it with either a modern or antique armoire is also worth exploring.
