Steps to measure your closet space for a closet system

  • Measure the width of the wall in three height locations (Figure 1. marked A, B, and C) where the closet system will be installed and record the smallest measurement. When taking the measurement closest to the floor, make sure your measurement is above any baseboard.

  • Make sure your closet system will fit. Measure from floor to ceiling. Make sure the system will fit in the space height-wise, when the top shelf is installed at a height of 84” from the floor, as shown in Figure 2.
  • Confirm the depth of left and right walls and the type and location of the closet doors. This is to confirm that the closet design will allow for drawers and baskets to be fully opened unobstructed by doors, walls, or other obstacles.
  • If you will be installing a system on more than one wall, confirm that the system on the adjacent wall maintains enough clearance. Hanging sections need at least 25” of clearance in a corner or adjacent system, as shown in Figure 2.

Hanging Sections and What to Expect

  • Long Hanging: lower shelf at 66” and rod at 64.5”, great for overcoats, dresses, formal, coats, and other garments needing long hanging space.
  • Mid Hanging: lower shelf at 55” and rod at 52.5”, great for blouses, long skirts, coats, and other garments needing medium hanging space.
  • Double Hang: lower shelf at 42” and rod at 40.5”, great for maximizing your hanging space for shirts, blouses, folded pants, and other garments where stacking the hanging space makes most sense.

How much hanging space do you need?

  • 1” of rod per item for hanging blouses and shirts.
  • 1.25” of rod per item for slacks, skirts, or folded pants.
  • 2” of rod per item for dresses and over coats.
  • 2.5” of rod per item for suits, sport coats, and blazers.
