Question Closet rod / shelf standard height?

Is there a generally accepted standard or practice for closet rod and shelf height?

This is new construction, with one walk-in closet, and two smaller (4') closets. I plan to add upper shelves, but would like to keep the rod/shelf to a standard if there is one.

Generally closet rods are around 5' from the floor, BUT, nowadays everyone wants a "standard" one, one for skirts, one for blouses, so placement becomes a personal choice.

For single hanging the rod should be 65" from the floor. Double hanging rods would be placed 42" and 84" from the floor. I agree with Larry in that most people prefer to set their own rod height, which can be accomplished with a European system. Line boring is drilled every 32mm. Closets Central is a good source. You're buying directly from the manufacturer and they ship nationwide.

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks, I didn't want to stray too far from normal in setting things to our preference. You guys have given me just what I needed.
