Shelves and Rods
Source: Organizing Good Things 2004
Make these essential closet components fit your needs and work for you. Here are some possibilities. The shelves in the closet shown are adjustable thanks to peg-in-hole supports. And no snags here: Smooth vinyl matting, normally used to protect drafting tables, is cut to fit each shelf and fixed in place with double-sided tape. Stainless steel shelves provide another solution; they can be adjusted without tools. If your sweater collection grows, another shelf can always be added. Archival and metal boxes (1), neatly set in rows, store small things, like gloves and socks. A single closet rod usually leaves the space under shirts and skirts unused; rods (2) that take both short and long items into account leave no space empty and as a result render sections roomy. The step stool folds for easy storage.
