How to Put up a Closet Rod Shelf

A closet rod shelf can help store and organise clothes. Adding a closet rod shelf to a wardrobe or closet is not difficult, and can benefit homeowners who wish to keep their clothes off of the floor.

Installing a Closet Rod Shelf

To install a closet rod shelf you will need a sturdy wooden rod, suitable rod supports, a screwdriver, a saw, and a power drill.

Step One

Cut the rod to the size of your closet. Measure the rod against the inside wall and saw off small pieces until you get a perfect fit.

Step Two

Decide on the height of the rod. If it is a children's closet you will need to make it reachable. Mark out the height at which you want the closet rod shelf on both sides.

Step Three

Measure the wall at the back of the closet, and mark out how far away from the wall you want to have the closet rod shelf. Do this for both sides.

Step Four

Get the rod supports and drill a hole at the height and depth you have marked off. Put one side of the support against this hole and screw in using the screwdriver. Repeat on the opposite side.

Step Five

Pull on the rod to ensure it is stable.
