Installing a Closet-Organizer System

 
If you're looking for a quick-fix solution to your closet clutter - and the option to easily reconfigure your organizer as storage needs change - then a manufactured off-the-shelf system may be perfect for you. You just buy it and install it. But a word of caution: All vinyl-coated wire systems - and all melamine-laminated particleboard systems - are not created equal. Many different manufacturers make both styles, but their components and attachment systems aren't always compatible with each other. To be safe, stick with the same brand for any single installation.
 

 

Measure up from the floor for the desired height of the first shelf, and mark the wall with a pencil. Use a carpenter's level to mark a horizontal reference line all around the closet at this height.

 
 

Mount the shelf unit by attaching the mounting clips with screws driven directly into the wall studs. Refer to the manufacturer's directions for the correct spacing of the mounting clips. If necessary, use hollow-wall anchors to fasten the clips between wall studs. Attach diagonal shelf supports where they're needed, again referring to the manufacturer's directions.
