Storeroom Measurement

Set Up Storage Rack In Your Home

How to measure your storeroom to fit your storage rack


BTO 4 room floor plan


We receive a lot of general inquiries on how to measure a typical storeroom rack, and to recommend the correct sizes of a storage rack for home use. For this article, we will use a typical 4 room BTO flat as an example. The storage room will be the HDB Bomb Shelter


The HDB floor plan is just a guide for owners to make planning. Each storeroom or HDB Bomb Shelters defers in sizes. Physical floor to floor measurement is still required to sum up the correct measurement and planning to purchase the ideal storeroom rack.


Steps 1 - Make Measurement of the Wall


- Using the Layout, measure the Length of Wall A, B, C and D.

- Always take measurement from floor level, as some store room has skirting along the side wall. Measurement should be made from skirting to skirting floor.

- Always give some space, like 1cm or 2cm allowance, fitting a shelf tightly to space is not advisable.

- Most HDB ceiling is about 2.6 meter high, our storage rack has a standard height of 2 meters, so it usually fits well in all HDB storeroom. 

- When you have switch box or circuit box in the store room, you may need to take that into consideration. For most cases, we just need to re-adjust the shelving just to avoid the Electrical Switch Box.

- You may proceed to step 2 if you like to plan your own storage rack positioning.

Steps 2 - Decide on the first rack to fill Wall B of the storeroom


- We will always start with the shorter side of the wall, which is Wall B. Decide what size can we fit on Wall B. 

- Check our guide to our storeroom rack sizes.

- So Wall B will fit our first "Rack 1"

- Generally, on Wall B, we will select a smaller rack with a 40cm or 50cm depth. Preferable 40cm depth, so that we could put in a longer rack on Wall A - "Rack 2".

Steps 3 - Decide on the second rack to fill Wall A of the storeroom



- Once you have decided on "Rack 1", the balance space on Wall A can be determined, and you can, therefore, decide on the size of "Rack 2" by checking the guide on storeroom rack sizes


- So Wall A balanced space shall fit "Rack 2". Generally, if you have enough space, always go for a deeper 50cm depth storage rack.

Steps 4 - Review your Storeroom Rack sizes again.

- Review whether if you change the size of "Rack 1" (from 40cm to 50cm), what size would you be able to fit for "Rack 2", is that what you want or comfortable?


- Finally with all the different options, is the price reasonable for you?

- Is that within your budget?
