Hello AT,

My husband and I own a small two bedroom townhouse. Way more air comes out of the vent located in the closet than comes out of the one in the bedroom floor! So in the summer we have to leave the closet door open all the time or the room gets unbearably hot. I think it looks horrible and want to remove the closet door altogether....

As you can see, it takes up a lot of space when the door is open and really messes with the flow of the room-- plus half the time I forget and shut it anyway. I'd like to replace the door with some sort of curtain (not the beaded fringe from the seventies, though) that can be left swept or pushed to the side during the summer and pulled closed the rest of the year.

Any tips or suggestions on how to do this and make it look finished and aesthetically pleasing?

Thanks! Heather K. in Cleveland, Ohio
