The Gregory Tradition

Gregory Design concepts

Most Gregory closets systems consist of combinations of one or more of the following:

Long Hang (Single Hang)

  • Typically hung at 68”
  • For dresses, outerwear, robes and trousers hung from their cuffs
  • Typically less than 20% of hanging space

Double Hang

  • Typically hung at 84” and 42”
  • For men’s garments as well as women’s blouses and skirts

Shoe Rack

  • Created by inverting a 12” ventilated shelf
  • Typically begin 12” above the floor and space vertically at 8” or 9” intervals

Stack of Shelves

  • For linen closets, pantries and bedroom closets
  • Typically begin 16” above the floor and space vertically at 13” intervals
  • Typically 24” to 36” wide to accommodate most folded items efficiently
