Clothing Measurements and Spacing


The best-designed storage space considers your available space and your inventory of the items being stored. Tip: organize your closet into three groups; long hang, short hang, and items to be placed on shelves or in drawers. This inventory will help you to determine how much space should be allocated to each type of storage. Use the below storage guide to help you with a smart closet design for your space.
