Clothing Measurements and Spacing


The best-designed storage space considers the customer's available space and an inventory of the items to be stored. Ask the consumer to organize his or her items into three groups; long hang, short hang, and items to be placed on shelves or in drawers. This inventory will assist in determining how much space should be allocated to each type of storage.
