Today closet design is an important part of construction, but designing closet shelving doesn’t have to be a brain twister. Though closets seem to come in many different sizes and shapes, they’re actually limited to only two basic types: walk-in closets and reach-in closets
Walk-in closets come in several shapes. Large walk-in closets allow for three complete walls of shelving and are often referred to as U-shaped. But remember, the shelving can’t run continuously across all the walls. Shelving on adjoining walls must stop 24 in. short or it will interfere with the clothes on the side walls. Which means that in a 5-ft.-wide walk-in, a bank of shelves on the rear wall can only be about 12 in. long. And also remember, shelving spans shouldn’t exceed 36 in. or the shelves will sag (for MDF shelving, 32 in. max. is best).
Reach-in closets, on the other hand, consist of only one wall of shelving, which is accessed while standing in the doorway of the closet. Reach-in closets are built in many sizes, but are usually only slightly wider than standard sliding door or bi-fold door openings; 4 ft., 6 ft., and 8 ft. Designed correctly, a typical 8-ft. reach-in closet will hold a lot of shelving components.
