How To Build Closet Shelves – Achieve maximum storage space in a closet by installing closet shelves and custom hanger bars. Traditional cabinets are equipped with an individual suspension rod and a single top storage platform, leaving almost 3 feet of unused space between the platform and the roof. Measure excess space in the closet to build your own closet shelves and hangers.
Determine the amount of space you need hanger; keep a single suspension rod or remove it and install two suspension rods. Measure the height position of the lowest suspension rod and mark this measurement on the two side walls. Measure the height position for your upper suspension rod and mark the measurement on the two side walls as well. Measure the position of the height and length of two or more shelves above the top rod. In a corner of the deep side of the cabinet, measure the height and width of a narrow vertical storage rack.
