Closet Depths

*Under Development*

Shelves (Depth): 12” | 30.5 cm
Drawers (Depth): 18” | 45.7 cm
Deep Drawers (Depth): 24” | 61 cm
Minimum Hangers (Depth): 20” | 50.8 cm
Comfortable Hangers (Depth): 24” | 61 cm

Closet depths are set based on the dimensions of various common clothing elements such as shoes, folded clothes, and shirts hung on hangers. When designing a closet, consider the specific efficiencies of each different storage element to better serve your closet needs. The comfortable recommended depth of a closet is 24” | 61 cm, but closet depths as narrow as 20” | 50.8 cm can be used if desired.

Shelf depths of 12” | 30.5 cm should be used for shoes and smaller clothing elements. If shoes are larger than these measurements, specialty inclined shoe racks can be incorporated to save space without adding additional depth. Drawers for folded clothes should be set at a minimum of 18” | 45.7 cm with deeper drawers for multiple rows of folding clothing at a depth of 24” | 61 cm. Deep drawers are consistent with standard closet depths 24” | 61 cm.
