Closet Rod Height?

I am finishing up an apartment remodel, is there a standard height for closet rods?

Re: Closet Rod Height?

Used to be 67" with one rod and shelf. Then everyone started doing 2 shelves, 2 rods, etc. so they could end up anywhere. I think alot of the old standards were meant to accommadate children and adults. I had a guy today that wanted his shaving sink at 42". (normal vanity sink is at 30").

Yeah, - - believe it's 68" for single rod, - - 84" (42-42) for double rod.
