Wire Closet Shelving and Organization Systems
These affordable, easy-to-find systems let you declutter your closet once and for all.
By: Jennifer Crutchfield
Wire closet shelving and closet organization systems are versatile, affordable and easy to install. Many retailers have online design tools that can guide you as you determine the best kit to provide for the layout and configuration for your needs. The availability of accessories like baskets, bins, drawers and shoe racks make it simple to mix and match.
Wire closet organizers are great to use in children's closets because their components can be repositioned as the children grow and their clothes storage needs change. Most systems can be installed using basic tools, including a level, a hammer and a drill. It is important to anchor tracks in wall studs or with drywall anchors to ensure that your system is strong enough to handle the weight of your clothes and accessories.
Shelving and organization systems are available in white and metal finishes. Telescoping rods and overlapping shelves ensure that systems fit perfectly and prevent you from needing to cut shelves or rods to design and install the perfect system.
