Birch & Platinum elfa dÃ©cor Master Walk-In Closet
I'm a Better Man
I convinced my husband that we should redo our master closet with Elfa. I showed him the plan I had sketched and then went to the store to work out a design. The price for what I wanted was a lot, but I told my husband we'd be much happier and it would eventually pay for itself when we sell the house (in the near future). The installation was well worth the additional dollars and the installer was great!
In the months since the installation, it is such a pleasure to get dressed in the mornings! We get our laundry put away immediately, because everything is right there. The valet rods make deciding what to wear--or what to pack for a trip--so much easier!
But the best thing was when my husband was getting ready one day and in the process said, "This closet has made me a better man!" What he meant was that since things are so organized and within reach, he doesn't get frustrated trying to get dressed. Now that's an endorsement!

I was a bit dubious about purchasing an elfa system because of the expense, but after my sister-in-law moved into a home with much smaller closets and managed to remain totally organized (& sane) with elfa, I decided to take the leap. Well, all I can say it that it has been life changing. Sounds silly, I know, but the piece of mind that comes with being organized is awesome. Not only it my closet now gorgeous (I painted the walls apple red first and installed white/birch system), but I am now using clothes and shoes I forgot I had. Everything is visiible and accessible and off the floor. I was also able to identify items in my closet that were lacking just one piece to make a total outfit. These items were going to waste in my closet. I can honestly say that I've gone clothes shopping only once since getting my closet, just to buy the few pieces I was lacking, and I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe. I would absolutely do it again.

Happy Closet Dance
Like most girls, I did the happy closet dance after my custom Elfa closet was installed. My husband even was really happy with the results.
The staff in store spent almost 3 hours with me to build the perfect closet to meet my needs. We got creative and maximized on product and space.
We opted for order online via ebates so I could get more rebates with in-store pickup. The Container Store in-store pickup is the most efficient and time-saving thought ever. The staff was extremely nice and helpful in loading the car.
Our install guy was awesome! He was late but made sure to call us and communicated estimated time of arrival and was extremely polite. Once there, he worked non-stop for 8+ hours without taking a break (not even for lunch). He was hard working and pointed out minor house issues that he found while he demo'ed the old shelves out. He did a great work on dismantling the old shelves, patch work and installing of new product. He also made sure to ask us if we wanted to keep any of the old shelves or hanging rods before he completely demolished them. He used his own tools and even his own vacuum to clean up before presenting our new closet. After he showed us the new closet, he went through items that were leftover that we could return for our money back, offered other suggestions for other products that would go with it.
Overall, I'm one extremely happy person. I look forward to doing laundry now just so I can put it up in the closet!

Master Closet Improvement with Elfa
This was a much improved closet installing Elfa system. The transformation was speechless. This system allows you to use areas you never thought you could. After laundry completed the putting away of clothes was never easier until now. I plan to do this to our remaining two closets, and then move to garage area. I love this system. It has improved our closet, and the price was much less than installing cabinets which become permanent. These modular units allow you to make changes anytime you feel the need. Durable, clean, expensive looking, just awesome!!!! The staff is very helpful and helped me every step of the way. Just awesome!!!!!
