Platinum elfa Mesh Closet Drawers
Excellent for Kids Drop & Go Area
I have two of these drawer systems side by side. My children have an area behind the front door where they like to "drop" their things. Their bathroom is located on the other side, which leaves a nook in between the entry way and bathroom.
Their system is side by side. The 7 drawers are used for (#1 - large) dirty laundry (#2 - medium) seasonal - swimsuits, goggles, sunscreen OR hats, gloves, scarves, winter socks (#3 medium) beach towels. The second set is for (#4 - small) hair ribbons, bands, bobby pins (#5 - medium) flat iron, brushes, curling iron (#6 - medium) belts (#7 - medium) flip-flops.
Hooks on the side hold book bags and lunch bags. This is an extra. Put this on before you attach the counter top.
The top holds a small fish tank, pens, and a few collectibles of my daughter's.
I highly recommend buying the drawer stops if you only need access from one side. This keeps the drawers from being pushed in too far and hitting the wall.
Perfect size for kids. I absolutely love this product and plan to add some more to my laundry room. It would be great in any room!!!
Plus, as a professional organizer that works with many different personalities and styles, I found that the visibility, yet privacy of mesh drawers works well with everyone I introduce this to.

Functional alternative to dresser
Holds extra clothing items that would require the purchase of another dresser for my son's room. This drawer set was a perfect fit for a small walk in closet, it can easily be moved to another space in the future. Well built and sturdy, unlike some of the cheaper alternatives. The drawers are deep and hold a variety of items (socks, seasonal items like goggles, shorts, bathing suits and a deeper drawer for sweatshirts). I am considering getting one of these for every closet just to keep the odds and ends and seasonal items from getting out of hand.
