Home Improvement – Build A Closet

If you deal with storage issues installing a closet is a good way to solve this problem. In many cases, you can make an existing closet more efficient, by putting in more shelves and rods. But, even in an area that had no cabinet prior to the installation of a cabinet is very simple, so if you choose to install a cabinet, here is a guide to help you to do this. Let us assume that you already have walls for the walk-in closet and the closet itself is all that you need to install. Here’s what you need:

Tools required

Nail gun
Stud finder
Tape measure
Hack saw
Materials needed
Cabinet Material
1.5-2 inch brad nails
1×4 tiles
1.25 inch brad nails
Rod holders
Closet rod
Rod support brackets


In the first place, use the tape measure to determine how much space you have for the closet. Decide how many shelves you need, and rods for clothing, how much of the door will be necessary, the balance of the door, and how much and what type of sources you will need to build the cabinet.

Use chalk or pencil to describe the cabinet on the wall where the closet will be so that you have a rough idea of how each part will be placed and fit together. Use the stud finder to find where the studs in the wall, and shows them with chalk so you can quickly find them later.

With the chop saw, cut your closet supplies to necessary length, and then proceed to turn on the compressor and the nail gun. Fill up the nail gun with the brad nails and you are ready to go. Start by putting the 1×4 boards and nailing them to the studs that were previously marked. Cut the shelving material you purchased for the closet to suit the design you chose and use the 1.25 inch nails to affix them to the 1×4 stringers you attached to the walls.

Now use the drill to screw the rod holders to the 1×4 side stringers and then cut the closet rod if necessary to get it to hold and insert the rod holder. It will serve as a support for the closet shelves and rods. Then use the drill and the 1.5 inch screws to put the rod support brackets to a maximum of 3 metres away, and all that remains now is to put in the various shelves and your new wardrobe is ready for use.
So much so that the door is concerned, use the plaster to cover the space where the door, and then put in any port you choose.

Sliding doors or outward swinging doors are recommended as the swing doors. Because it can be difficult to open, when all of the shelves and your clothes are inserted.

Use the putty knife to fill in the uneven spots when you are done. the
