You will be measuring your closet at home and designing an organization structure built from shelving stock available at Home Depot or Lowes. The shelving stock will be 3/4" thick and either 16 inches or 12 inches deep. You will probably use 15-16" material. It usually comes 97" long and can be white or have a pattern to it. Some of the stock has holes. This is for shelf supports. You will build multiple units to fill the space. Your goal is to have hanging space for shirts or blouses and pants. You should also have some cubbies for sweaters or socks or things that normally might go into a drawer. You will need to build these storage units as a collection of components. For example, the sides will probably be around 80 inches high and 12, 16, or 24 inches wide. Shirts usually need 35 to 40 inches of hanging space. Pants can be folded and hung.
Closet rods are usually 11 to 12 inches from the back wall. That is why sides need to be 16" thick. A single shelf and pole system places the rod 70" off the floor.
Step 1. Measure your available closet space.
Step 2. Make an organization plan.
Step 3. Draw your components.
Step 4. Add content to your closet (clothes from google).
Step 5. Take snips of your closet.
Step 6. Place in a word document.
Step 7. Determine how much plain shelving (provide width and length and number of pieces) and how much pre-drilled shelving (provide width and length and number of pieces). Then go to the Home Depot or Lowes website and find costs. I will need a material list and a total cost breakdown for your project.
