We were taught that the standards should be installed no more than 24 inches apart. For example, if you have a 72 inch closet, install one near the left wall, one in the dead center, and the third near the right wall. It's definitely preferable if you have at least two of the three standards installed on studs.

As far as how far from the end of shelf to install the bracket, I would try not to leave more than 6 inches between the bracket and the end of the shelf, especially if you are storing something heavy, like canned goods.


Hope this helps.
