Full Answer

In most closets, a single hanging bar wastes a lot of space. Moving the top bar to an 81 3/4-inch height leaves it in reach of most individuals and makes room for a second bar, mounted at a 40 1/2 inch location. The short hanging bar space is ideal for pants folded over a hanger, shirts and short jackets. In a child's closet, it is possible to add a lower shelf, 29 inches from the floor.
