Linen close shelf depth
I need to figure out how deep to make the shelves in the hall and master bath linen closets. I built a house. It took 7 years but we finally moved in last September. I've been doing finish work ever since. I am to the linen closets now. They are 24 inches wide and 19 inches deep. The walls are 8 foot high so that is the height of the closet but the header comes down 14 inches from the ceiling. I am putting raised panel solid core doors on them. So how deep should I make the shelves? It seems like the standard 12 inches that I put in the other closets and pantry just aren't wide enough for bulky sheets and blankets. I don't think I want to bring the shelves all the way out to the door jambs becasue that will make it hard to put the trim on the inside and will interfere with access to the top shelf because of the header. What do yo think?
