The difference between top- and medium-quality drawer slides, for example, is huge. 2. AMOUNT OF ATTENTION PAID TO THE AESTHETICS. There is a world of difference between a purely functional closet and one that has been carefully designed with beauty in mind. This involves questioning every component in the process and deciding how it can be made more attractive and refined. Instead of having open shelves across an entire wall, for example, a couple of doors that conceal the clutter might be more appealing.

For details on the drawer installation, see Installing Drawers with Accu-ride-style slides on page 50. 13 The plan called for three adjustable shelves, which are simple rectangles. The opening measures 33½″ (851mm) wide, so I subtract ¼″ (6mm) from this dimension to get the width of the shelves [33¼″ (851mm)]. Adjustable shelves need a little wiggle room [about 1/8″ (3mm) on each side] so they can move in and out easily without causing any damage to the vertical partitions. We also needed a 33½″-long (851mm) stretcher between vertical partitions 2 and 3.

If you work amidst clutter, though, you can easily add a set of doors. The most important part of planning this closet is evaluating your storage needs and working style. I already owned a simple wooden stool that is comfortable for me to sit at, so I played around with a few measurements and decided on a desktop height of 38″ (965mm).
