I'm installing wainscot in a couple bedrooms. These bedrooms have
closets. One bedroom has a sliding door type or closet, the other is a
semi walk-in. I was thinking of installing the wainscot in the closet
also. My thoughts are, the closet doors are usually open and thus IMO
it would look better. However, is it common do have this in the
Not common; some would consider it overkill, but if you like it, it's a good
idea - it's your house.
In my closets, I have either an offwhite paint or - in two bedrooms - I have
accent colors on the closet walls and offwhite paint on all the shelving, top
and bottom of the shelves. Looks cool, although most of it is obscured with the
stuff that I'm storing in the closet. Some would consier even that to be
overkill, but it does give a more finished look as I live with the closet doors
both open and (more usually) closed.
Bottom line: it's your house, fix it how you'll enjoy it.
Obviously you can do whatever you want, but it seems like a waste to me.
Firstly, my closet doors are only open if I'm in there, so I'm not sure who
exactly would see the wainscotting. Secondly, since there will most likely
be either shelving or poles for hanging clothes along the walls, would it
even show? Of course, as always, YMMV.

I have a shoe rack too, but one can see through that. There are more
parts that have nothing in front of the wall, but that tends to be the
part where the sliding doors usually sit.
Some people have so many clothes, and other things that they put in

OTOH, I'm a saver, and you may not be. If you're a thrower or a
no-buyer, you'll have room for years and years.
