the space between the floor and the first shelf should be the same as the
rest of the shelves, but it's not that critical. Just depends on what you
want to put in those storage spaces.

A good decorator's rulle is 1/3-2/3. A third of the wall above the
shelf, two-thirds below. Or the space to the floor is double the
space to the ceiling.
Another rule is an extension of a grid. Line the shelf up with the
nearest horizontal item in the same general area. Might be a window
moulding, cabinet, etc. If it's slightly above or below that line it
looks way off.
