Driftwood & Platinum elfa Office in a Closet
Closet to Office in 4 Short Days!
I went to TCS on a Tuesday after a friend told me they had the Elfa system. I went home, measured, went back to TCS and ordered my closet to home office conversion solution. On Saturday the installer came. He took out the shelving in the closet. Repainted the area where the shelves were. Installed the Elfa system I had picked out with TCS helpful staff and Voila! I had converted a closet that stored junk into a home office. This makes my compact home even more useful and livable. Love it!

Great use of space
Living in a city apartment we are particularly challenged by space; especially a dedicated office space. We decided to sacrifice a underutilized closet in our living room for this closet/desk combo unit. My husband and I have been overwhelmingly pleased with the functionality of the components and quality of the elfa shelving, so much so that we've also purchased a laundry organization system and considering our next home improvement project with elfa products.

Didn't want it BUT LOVE IT
So when we moved to our new house my husband insisted on purchasing our office shelving at the Container Store. Honestly I had never stepped into the Container Store and every time he brought something home I rolled my eyes. BUT when we put it up in our new home and I saw all the SPACE it saved AND how it truly held ALL of our office things I FELL IN LOVE with my ELFA office and can't wait to go back to the Container Store to organize my whole house!!! You won't regret this purchase

Excellent Solution for Small Spaces!
If you are looking for a desk solution for a small space look no further. I installed this system in my studio apartment and I couldn't be happier. This is not the first solution I've tried so I strongly recommend it.

I purchased the Elfa Office in a Closet over three years ago and it has been the best investment. I highly recommend it to transform a closet into an office with little work!

WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG!
My new years resolution is to become more organized and with the help of the Container Store and the Elfa Home Office in a Closet for inspiration I did it! I cleaned out the cabinet and old rickety shelving unit that I have been looking at for 10 years. I painted the closet myself and that in and of itself was very therapeutic. The design process at the store was so easy and the sales person very knowledgeable so I have exactly what I had designed in my mind. The installer was a pro and made the finished product look awesome! Watch out Garage, you are next!

Love My Office in a Closet
I have a small wall in a corner of my 'nanny' bedroom at my grandchildren's home that I wanted to utilize to do my laptop cruising /bill paying, etc. The 'office in a closet' is the perfect size and looks great!!! This is my second ELFA purchase (have one at home that is on an entire wall of my craft/office room). The ease of installation (I did both myself) and the functionality is wonderful and i highly recommend this system to all.

Really helps creativity.
I am a quilter. I have a sewing room but had to share the space with our home office. I always hated it when I would walk into the room and see my home office instead of my creative space. Needless to say this really stopped my creativity.
However, I bought this Office in a Closet and now I love my room. Now when I walk in with fresh inspiration I can focus my attention on my art. When I am ready to pay bills, etc. I simply open the closet door and everything is organized and ready to go.

Made useless catch-all space useful!
I installed the 'Office in a Closet' in what should have been the "coat closet". Rather then using it for coats, it turned out to be a dumping ground for all of the stuff that had no place else to go. When getting the closet ready for the installation, I found: my niece's travel bassinet (she's 2!), a box that a lamp was delivered in almost 3 years ago (kept it at first in case I needed to return/exchange the lamp), my son's bag full of t-ball gear (helmet, cleats, glove), all surrounding my cd tower.
Now, I have a lovely desk where I can pay bills, sort mail, keep track of all the kids' school stuff, and store books and magazines.
It's EXACTLY what I was looking for--but I didn't know it until I saw it on the website!
