Sliding Mirror Door On Bedroom Closet

Has anyone replaced a closet door? We had a small crack on one side for a long time and then the mirror cracked across the entire door. What type of glass in it made of?

We had to replace our closet door on our last coach a 2003 Holiday Rambler Vacationer.

Not paying attention to what I was doing, I broke it BIG TIME.

Anyhow I took the complete broken door to a glass shop and about $100.00 later, all fixed. The mirror has a plastic film on the back so that when a clutz like me breaks it, it does not shatter but holds together instead.

Frankly I've never been convinced of the need for mirrored wardrobe sliders at that closet. One can't get far enough away from them for them to be useable. I think some sliding louvred doors make more sense and couldn't shatter.

True. They aren't usable for looking at yourself in them (I try to avoid the resulting shatter anyhow). But they really do make the room look bigger. On my last coach I added a couple full height mirrors and the resulting "feel" of the space grew instantly.

The other day, I had a Monaco parked across the way and looking through his coach I could not see where it ended. Every surface facing out the front had been mirrored. It really did look huge inside. I am certain he had a case of Windex in the bins below.

On my coach, I mirrored the wall behind the toilet. Now it feels much bigger when walking in. (The prettier people in this group may want to mirror the opposite wall.) Large, light-weight and cheap mirrors are available at Home Depot. Mine was about $15 and goes wall to wall.

Back to the closet door... I have custom ordered mirrored closet doors from Home Depot to fit into various closet and cabinet openings. Though I use the frameless ones, you would need the frame for the latch. I think even Stanley does custom mirrored doors.
