Design Wire Baskets

Wire baskets are an economical and easy way to lay shelves for wardrobes, kitchenette, laundry room, utility room and garage. Shelves are available in almost all lengths and are often fit exactly spaces. It comes in both close and wide gap variations, depending on shelf needs, and is available in several designs, or you can spray paint it to meet your home decor. These shelves are sold in ready-made kits with all attachments and clips included or in individual parts to meet specific shelves needs.


Measure the length of the space where the wire baskets is needed. If the shelf is intended to touch the wall at any end, subtract 3/4 inches from the measurement. Duplicate that if it will touch both ends. Determine the number of wall clips needed to hold the rear end of the shelf in the wall. A good rule is a clip for every 12 inches of shelf, evenly distributed. Mark the 1 inch clip from the edge if not near sidewalls. Use a water pass to make sure all holes are positioned in a straight line.

When assembling the clip into rivets, simply drill, and fasten with screws. If secured in plaster, point the wall anchor the cliff in the steering holes, and screw them into the wall. Attach the wire baskets to the wall clip, one by one by gently pushing back the shelf into the clip until they snap into place. It will now hang there against the wall, and you can place the plastic caps over all open ends if needed. Load the front of the shelf inside the bracket and check that level, mark the place with a pen and drill yourself the holes. Attach the hook with a screw, and slide the shelf in place.
