This is what we did with a closet in our Cape Cod house - a closet built into the side of a dormer. Shelves are 12" wide. The back shelf is 24" deep and about 40" wide total - enough for large plastic storage bins. We added woven baskets on the shelves in a light color and will also add tags.
Oh Jason.... can you build me some shelves? Coat closet organization.
