wardrobe shelve ideas for Roo 19

I have been searching the forums for ideas for shelves for the narrow wardrobe in our 2012 Roo19. I would like to find free-standing wire or palstic shelves that can stack and be removed rather than build actual shelves. Has anyone found specific shelves that actually fit the Roo19 wardrobe? I have seen some great ideas, but having trouble finding actual wire or plastic shelves/storage that fit. Any links to products that work in 11" wide opening would be appreciated!

I had to buy a 48 inch wire shelf at Lowes, and with a metal hand saw, cut the shelves at the width required. I also did the cupboard above the sink. I screwed the vertical brackets to the back, using 1 inch screws. Works real well.

I also changed to cupboard doors to open UP instead of sideways, after hitting my head too many times

Here are some pics:

I like the idea of the shelf in the OHC. If I had it done would it work to install it upside down so there's a rim to help things in?

Thanks for the pics. On the wardrobe shelves, did you just screw the 1 inch screws directly into the side wall of the Roo/Shamrock? Was there a stud there or did you go right into the wall? If you went right into the wall was there any concern with the weight pulling out the screw or damaging the wall? It looks like from you pics the shelves are adjustable and only suppport is the back. Love the design and I think I'll go with that assuming there is no issue with putting screws through the wall.

Thanks for the idea.

I went with the vertical slotted tracks and clips so I could adjust the height.

I like the idea of the upside down wire shelving though.

Yep, just screwed them in the back wall, no problems at all, no studs found. No issues with the weight or pulling out, as the design spreads the load to the full length. We put food and cans in there now.

As for inverting the shelf... The bracket and shelf design does not allow it, it does not clips but floats when reversed, I tried ....

I bought those same wire shelves at Home Depot but have yet to install them (Adding wire shelves to my pantry -- any tips on screwing brackets into wall?). I too am concerned with just screwing into the back wall of the cabinet, so I'm going try and use toggle anchors to provide more support.

Toggle anchors and screws are not an option for screws on the exterior/outside walls, which was my case....

Going on 3 years now, and the vertical bars and brackets have not moved at all. It is very sturdy.

I am assuming those would not work because the exterior wall (back of wardrobe) is not hollow to allow the breackets to open? I believe the Roo wall is filled with some type of styrofoam insualtion but I'm not sure. So far looks like screws are the way to go.

I've been wondering about that ever since I read this thread -- what if there isn't enough room behind the back of the cabinet wall for the toggle to fit? I'll probably try screws first, and if they start to pull out I'll look for a sturdier solution.
