Michele, the simplest would be some 3/4" inch screen molding, each side, running front to back the depth of the wardrobe. You can get some nice matching oak screen molding, as I recall, about 1/8" thick. Your shelves can rest directly on the cleats. If the shelves wiggle, a small piece of VHB tape on the shelf contact point stops the rocking motion quickly.

Test each shelf first so that you know you can place it on the cleats and remove it as you move to each next set of cleats. You'll need enough room to tilt the shelves front to back, in and out, left and right, etc. Temporary removable double-sided tape works well for this task. Don't ask me how I know.

We put a set like this in our Boler's similar wardrobe. There are a few brands of very similar products available, as well as different sizes within a brand, so some searching might yield a good fit.

Most seem to be modular: although it is not an advertised feature, individual drawers and their supporting frames can be mixed and matched (within the same brand and width) to get a workable combination.

This is certainly a problem. We found some flat items that tuck in well beside the drawer unit to make use of that space, and I secured it the drawers to maintain it.
