building out reach in closet. 24" for drawers /hanger areas?

last year

It seems most places recommend 24" depth for reach in closets but is that the total depth of the space or how deep I want my drawers and spaces for hangers to be? I know shelves can be a bit more shallow.
I made my master 24" boxes and looking at my hanging clothes, there's a good 3-5" between the back wall and my clothing.
I also noticed a lot of the premade solution from Ikea or wherever are seldom 24". My space is 30" deep from the bedroom side of the finished wall to the back wall. Don't tell my partner I posted this image!
