Polytherm Grid System
Great for Small Spaces
I put this up in my galley kitchen. It holds all the things I use often like measuring cups and spoons, towels and cooking utensils. No more having to dig in a drawer to find stuff!

I've been looking for some simply hanging baskets for awhile. When I came across these, they were perfect for what I needed. They look good and are sturdy.

Why did we wait so long?
The small grid system is exactly what we needed to go above the coffeemaker to hold the cups! It was easier to install than I had imagined, and it looks like it should have been in our kitchen all along. I wish I had a larger wall so I could get the medium or large size. I'm sure I could find something for it to hold.

Great solution for hanging baby clothes
I was looking for small clothes pins to attach pants/bottoms to tops in my baby's closet. These clips were perfect- they either slide over the hook of the hanger or clip onto the bottom rung. They're a bit spendy per use, but it's worth it to me to have a solution for keeping outfits together. I've since returned for additional packages.

multi-use hooks from Polytherm Grid System
I bought the Deko hooks from the Polytherm Grid System to use with my InterMetro shelving because the hooks designed to go with the InterMetro shelving are too broad to fit in the hole in the handle of my small cast iron frying pan. These Deko hooks have an excellent design, with a narrow top hook just big enough to go over the shelving and remain stable, and a generous bottom hook that fits smaller holes in cast iron, etc. (I had previously bought standard true S-hooks, but the larger top of the S was less stable than these Deko hooks.)

I've had mine for 30 years!
This is one of the best products I have ever used for anything! Would that the rest of the material we drag around with us was as useful! I have taken it out of the country with me 3 times as well as scores of domestic moves. When I am moving I use the grids as a flat file to protect artwork. I have always lived in small spaces and it is one of the first things I put up to organize my move in because it is where the scissors live as well as mailing supplies and other office equipment. I am so glad to know I can still get mounting hardware, baskets and hooks for them! I am sure they will last 30 more years. Thanks, Polytherm! Are you publicly traded?

Up on the WALL!
One of my FAVORITE areas of my kitchen in New Orleans: my cookware - on the big GRID! I'm hoping to put (new cookware) on a new GRID (both lost to post-"Katrina" mess). wish I still had my lg. Grid - and a photo. It was a great solution - esp. in a small space!

Ordered pencil cups to go with older grid system
My local store did not have the pencil cups to go with the system. I ordered from this site and it worked out well. I love this grid. I bought a small one for my work office many years ago. When I left the job last year I took the grid with me and put it up in my new sewing room (my son left for college). This system works even better here! Everything is neat and nearby. The new pencil cups work great for pencils, chalk markers and I have one for rulers. I would recommend this for anyone.

Love the Polytherm Grid System
This is such a useful product when you want to make use of your bare walls for utility purposes. I put it in my laundry room and it was the perfect thing to store all my laundry supplies. Am thinking of where I should put the next one!

I love these grids. They have such a variety of baskets and racks that can be mixed and matched and this can be used in any room in the house! So good for college organization!

A Clear Winner!
I purchased two grid systems (mounted one above the other) for organizing my daughter's school project and homework supplies. She now has her pencils, colored pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, tape, paper cutter, hole puncher, and everything else she could need for various projects. It keeps her items within arms reach and neat and organized. This is one of those purchases that we continue to be happy with and it has been a clear winner for us!

Great organization tool. I can't take credit for buying this as it was in our home when we moved in. We have really limited storage space, and having this hung near our stove makes accessing spices, oil, &etc. easy! Great system for small spaces or for those who want easier access!

Awesome for craft room storage
I love this grid system...so many add ons that you can make it to what you want, baskets, hooks, clips, etc. i just redid my craft room and I hung it over the closet door, facing outward. Didnt even have to attach it. I used an over the door coat hanger and it holds it perfect". Will be buying more accessories for it!

Great for a small space
Purchased this to put into a door frame we closed off for additional storage in a VERY small kitchen. Installation took about 5 minutes and the pieces are just exactly what we needed. I purchased some various add-ons and they all worked well.
Easy, inexpensive way to take advantage of those few inches of extra wall space without protruding into the narrow galley.

Absolutely fantastic wall grid for organizing
I have limited drawer space in our kitchen. I saw these and have installed them on 3 walls. I intend to put up two more in the kitchen and I will also use them in the office areas. You can organize to your needs with the additiona item in this system. I used ours in the kitchen for our many kitchen tools, etc.
I gave it the highest ranking and recommend it. My son discouraged me from installing these. He did not think I would not like them Now he wants some.
They are sturdy and well made, very easy to install ( used their hooks to hang them. The cost at The Container Store was less than anywhere else online or in a store when I purchased them about 6 weeks ago.
These are definitely a winner. I generally do not pot review, but these are so useful.

I was so glad I purchased this system. It turned the barren space at the top of my basement stairs into a well-organized pantry. Doubled the amount of space I had for canned and packaged goods!

Great kitchen wall grid
This is a great kitchen wall grid. I was going to install peg boards, but I saw this and loved the shelves that came with it. I put two on the wall, and have everything from my tea set (on a shelf) to scissors and a colander hanging from a hook, to onions & garlic and lemons & limes in baskets right over the cutting board.

Good for storage conundrums
We bought this system because we are in an apartment that does not have good pantry storage. This is great for creating pantry space for smaller items (we use it for spices, baking supplies, hanging coffee mugs, etc.). It is fairly expensive (we spent over $120 for a system to cover about 3/4 of the back of a door) but is also very flexible, so we will be keeping it.
We originally hung it from the door with over the door hooks, but those broke because of the weight of the system loaded with all of our stuff, so we ended up having to screw it into the door (will have to fix that when we move out of the rental!). Also, they have to be mounted separately, not very structurally sound when you hang them from each other in my opinion.

Awesome product for my purpose
I purchased the smallest grid for my new RV kitchen area. Installation was a breeze with command strips. I also purchased the large hook, short shelf and "S" hooks. The best thing about this product is the ability to move the components around to get the best configuration. I love this grid and will definitely be purchasing more for the RV. This shelf would not meet someone's need if they wanted to hang heavy pots and pans, but I will be using it for lighter items and it's perfect for that. Thanks container store for a great product!

Great system for all those odds and ends that take up too much shelf space. I covered one entire wall in my walk in pantry with this system. Amazing system! I would gladly pay more for a heavier gauge. I'm considering the same for the laundry room. There's no better feeling than being organized.

Oh, Why did they forsake us???
OK, so this is not Container Store's fault-- it's the company Metaltex, but the system they sold 5 years ago was the same nice metal color, but was very sturdy and thick in comparison. I used it to store ALL of my pots and pans, including my heavy iron ones-- in my last kitchen-- with no problems. When I moved two years ago I no longer needed the pot storage and wanted to get more shelves and convert it to store my bottle collection which fit perfectly in the one shelf I had used before. Unfortunately, Metaltex seems to have changed their design to this-- which is way more flimsy--looking. I would never trust it for pots and pans. Furthermore, only one of the new shelves fits on my old grid, and they discontinued the shelf I had before, so I can't get matching ones for my collection-- I'm honestly stumped and may have to throw the old rack out completely and look for something new. So disappointed in Metaltex!!! I wish they at least sold shelves to go with the old system, but I can't find any sign of it, even after searching European sites online!

Great for over the sink
I really like the small grid system for above my sink. I have a shelf for sponges, a basket for liquid soaps, and a cup for dish brushes. It's perfect and my kitchen looks more organized.

Kitchen Grid...not just for kitchens!
This product is great in my closet. I love the fact that I can move the hooks. It has become my favorite way to use a long wall space (not wide enough for shelves) in order to store purses I use often and other things like a belt, or necklace. I think this product, shown in the store in the kitchen area, should be also shown in the closet area of the store!

Every room in the House is Organized!
I use these in all shapes and sizes in every room. Examples are:
Bathroom: On wall with baskets for hairsprays, makeup, brushes and hooks for towels.
On shower wall with baskets and hooks for shampoos, wash clothes, backbrush and razors, etc. So much better than the small racks that hang from the shower head and constantly slide off.
In sewing room: baskets hold thread spools of all sizes, scissors, fabric, etc. The hooks and clips are great for quilting supplies that need to hang.
In bedroom: hooks hold necklaces, bracelets, belts, scarves, purses.
In kitchen: pans, utensils, spices, cans, towels, potholders
In garage, flashlights, gardening tools, exra supplies.
I haven't found anything that isn't better organized and easy to get to using this system! I hang the broom and mop by a cord from the hole in the handle, but would like the type of clip that attaches to the handles of brooms and rakes.

LOVE IT!!! Versatile!!

Awesome spice rack
I purchased this to create a rack for spices and seasoning packets. It works wonders. I also like the versitility of this system. Thanks for creating such an inexpensive rack and giving it many options to make it your own space.

Very pleased with the quality of the product -- have not attached grid to the wall yet, but it looks like it will serve well. Hooks are great - won't gouge the wall, yet will support hanging colanders, etc.
Online order came very quickly, even during holiday season.

Perfect for all my spices!
I was tired of all my spices falling out of my pantry and I couldn't hang a spice rack on my pantry door. I used this grid and several baskets to organize my spices on my kitchen wall. Very easy to hang and I love that I have several basket options to choose from.

I live in an apartment with literally no closet space and a one-year-old. I needed something to help organize my life a little bit. I used the medium grid system in my home office, a large one for crafts, and three small ones in my bathroom. I have a pedestal sink in my bathroom, so there's no storage in there. These are AMAZING! I could not have dreamed up a better product.
