I was out looking at new houses again recently (no surprise there).

As I was looking around, I opened a door to a walk-in closet. What I discovered inside was a pleasant surprise that I don’t see very often these days in moderately priced homes:

It’s a definite improvement over those ugly wire shelving systems!

As it turns out, they have some really nice looking shelving and organizing systems.

Their website states that it sells for $250, which includes delivery.

It fits in a 10-foot space and provides up to 24 feet of shelf space.

Anyway, you can read more about it at the link above.


I decided to write about it because this type of wood closet shelving deserves more attention.

It’s affordable and makes a huge difference in the look and feel of a closet — not to mention the added storage it provides for the homeowner.

Now I have to admit that the system I show in the photos here is fairly bare bones, when compared to some of the custom shelving systems that are out there waiting to be installed (and installed in homes already).

But my point is that wood is a big improvement over wire shelving — which should be limited to sheds, basements and garages, in my opinion.

I wish wire shelving never existed and that solid wood (or slat wood) shelving systems were the norm used throughout the home building industry.
