Suspended Closet Systems
Based on a metal rail that is secured to the studs, this system is very popular for suspended closet projects. All of the structural components hang off of the rail. The weight of the system is carried by the studs and is very strong. The vertical panels accommodate an engineered wall mounting bracket that attaches to the panel and clips over the rail. Horizontal and vertical adjustment screws make for a perfectly square result.
Advantages of a suspended system:
No need to remove existing base or crown moldings from the wall
Does not extend to the floor, so carpeting can easily run underneath the system and changing the flooring is uncomplicated
Usually less expensive than a floor based system
Custom cutouts around heating vents and electrical outlets are usually not necessary
Floor Based Closet Systems
Floor based closet systems are designed to be supported by the floor and include a base cabinet that raises the closet a few inches off the floor. Typically, the bottom of the base box near the wall is cut away and fitted around baseboard moldings to ensure a snug fit to the wall. Alternately, moldings like baseboards can be removed prior to installation. Since floor-based systems sit on the floor, it can be difficult to change the carpeting unless it is removed from under the unit prior to installation.
Advantages of a floor based system:
Additional base and crown moldings can be added for a more polished furniture look
The best type of closet system available for buildings where walls are constructed with plaster and lath, rather than drywall
Combination Closet Systems
The majority of custom closet systems use a combination of suspended and floor-based pieces to provide the utmost functionality coupled with a beautiful appearance. Having both types of storage systems available allows for the creation of optimal design solutions based on the individual needs of each project or room.
