Maximizing My Closet Space

I have a 4 ft closet space in my house and I wanted to maximaze the space.  I got the configurations deluxe 4-8ft closet kit and knew this would improve the space I had from a single hang wardrobe shelf.  Here's the steps I took and you can also follow these steps to help maximize your closet space:

  1. Take everything out of the closet and toss/donate/keep your existing items



2. Remove all previously installed closet systems/shelving


3. Spackle any holes that were created from removing the existing shelving


4. Follow the configurations closet kit's instructions

  • 1st put up the rail
  • hang the uprights
  • hang upright extensions (based on the design you choose to use)
  • insert the brackets and shelving to your desired look
  • hang hang rod/s



It was that easy!! It took me about a total of 2 hours, and it looks great!!  I can't wait to fill the space!

    Hi Julie,
    What a great idea for the NAPO conference. We will have to see if this is possible to do in the future. Unfortunately it will not happen this April but I will keep it in mind for the following year. Hope to see you in sunny San Diego soon!!!

    You sure made it look easy!
    I would love it if Rubbermaid would do a hands-on Configurations® workshop at the NAPO conference one of these years. For those of us who aren’t particularly handy, a chance to walk through the process would be enlightening!
