Glass Doors for the Spacious Look

Rooms with a limited space look even smaller and darker if there is a lot of cluttering on the walls or wooden partitions to demarcate storage spaces. This is where a glass door comes in handy. See through doors for wall closets give the room an air of spaciousness, and within those, a neatly arranged closet adds to room décor too!

Optimization is the Key

Airtight for Clean Storage

Storage cabinets with airtight doors are a must for dust-free storage of clothes, especially when the closet is near a window. Closets with sliding doors are better than those with magnetic catchers for door flaps, for well ventilated BUT small living spaces.
