Track Shelving for Closet Organization

Don’t forget you can still stick to the classic use of track shelves – the closet. A track system is still a go-to solution for closet organization because of it’s affordability and versatility. We love using them for shoe storage.

All White Track Shelving with Cabinets

Choosing white tracks, white shelves, and white brackets; and pairing the system with white wall cabinets creates a beautiful nook in this home. And the result looks just as good as a custom built-in, for a fraction of the price.

Small Storage Areas

These shelves don’t have to expand a whole wall, they work in small spaces as well like above a small desk. We love the more rustic look of these black tracks and brackets paired with natural wood shelves.

TV Wall 

Can’t find a media cabinet you love? Use a shelving system instead. It creates storage space, and helps incorporate your TV into the decor.

How do you build a track shelf anyway?

If you’re feeling inspired by all of these beautiful track shelving layouts, but worried about how hard it is, relax!

Building a track shelf is actually very simple.  You’ll simply need to hang your tracks first.  Be sure to have a stud finder on hand so you can be sure your tracks will be firmly anchored into your walls.

After the tracks are hung, simply organize with your brackets and shelves!  That’s it.

With all of the different options available for tracks, brackets, and shelves, it is easy to get exactly the look you want.
