Re: Knee wall closet design
I'm Rich the cabinet maker and closet designer. Your closet does have some advantages over similar spaces in that it is wide and deep and the knee wall is 4 feet high.
Your rod should be on the back wall not across the front.
Starting over, first place the closet rods. Use the back wall for long hang and the side walls for medium hang. I would use the back half of the side walls for hang and the front half for flat shelves for shoes and folded garments. This way you can get in the closet.
As for materials it depends. Home centers have a nice selection. Or you could hire a company. If you do, get three quotes!
Hope this helps.
