Platinum elfa freestanding Reach-In Closet
I bought the elfa freestanding closet to expand the built in closet components of an existing walk -in closet. I wanted to add space that could be moved if necessary. Lucky planning on my part. In the last three years I have moved twice and each time the elfa system gets set up and instantly expands the space. I am currently renting and am ordering more components for a second closet. This has been durable and easy to take up and put back together in the new place. I am not at all handy but had no trouble after I learned the approach. This is the Lego system for closet organization.
I have the freestanding shelving unit with 4 baskets that glide in and out. I have the rod that I hand mid-way up the closet so I can get two areas for shorter hanging items. I have ordered another rod for closet #2. In all 3 places, I have been able to move the sections to fit the existing space. They have been side by side in a reach in closet and on opposite ends of a narrow walk-in.
The only reason I haven't given this fantastic system 5 stars is the pricing. The brackets should come with covers instead of being add on purchases.. The rods should come with end caps. Trying to remember all of the pieces to complete the set is not easy when you live too far to visit a store. The nearest store is now 8 hours away. Sure hope I managed to get everything shipped the first time so this doesn't become a month-long project.

Excellent Customer Service
The entire process of creating the elfa system for one of my closets has been something I have always wanted to do but was always intimidated by the process. This weekend I went to the store with measurements and sat with "Susan" at the store who was very patient, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with creating a fantastic closet for my son! I am super excited to have it installed, the explaination and patience of the staff at the Container Store is top-notch. It is definitely worth the money, time and effort to sit with them to get the best organizational system.

it was hard to install and we had to go back 2 times to exchange broken pieces, make sure the people who handle yours handel with care.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Had a VERY small closet in a second bedroom, so needed more storage ad closet space. Knew what I wanted, but didn't find it until I googled the Container Store. OMG! This is the best thing since sliced bread. I am a small, middle aged woman and I put this together in two hours!!! All the pieces were there, too. Also, customer services was amazing. I ordered and paid for it over the phone and picked it up four days later. Couldn't have been easier and I couldn't be happier! Now, I want to redo my entire home with elfa products!

Easiest custom closet ever!!
Wanted to customize our new walk-in closet, but knew we wouldn't be living In this house forever. We bought the freestanding platinum Elfa in Miami and drove it home to Tampa in our minivan with room to spare. Set up was super easy, and now our walk-in closet looks like it was fully customized, but it was a fraction of the cost and we can take our closet with us when we move.
Love,love,love our Elfa!

Outstanding closet solution
We have purchased 2 of these freestanding closet systems and love them. After doing some extensive home remodeling, we felt we didn't want to start making new holes in closet walls to hang racks and bars, so we liked the idea of a freestanding closet system, with the added plus that we can take the whole thing with us if we move!
We struggled a bit putting together our first closet but did much better with the second.
