Platinum elfa Reach-In
After more than a decade with a guest room closet that was way under-utilized and yet somehow still stuffed to overflowing, decided to turn it into part-gallery and part dressier clothes/shoes storage. With the help of an in-store Elfa designer, we came up with a multi-purpose configuration -- part display, part storage -- that matched my decor (platinum and birch).
When you open the doors, Mary Poppins and a very old bear are the centerpiece (without taking up too much room). Even with that "display" area, there is more than 20" of long hanging space, 2 huge (still empty) drawers and tons of extra shoe storage! The pull-out shoe-rack holds so many shoes! PURE GENIUS! Lots of room to grow! The top racks (with some purging yet to go) hold a tremendous amount of memorabilia like yearbooks, photo albums, binders, etc.
This closet is like one-stop, in-house shopping when getting dressed for an event -- dresses, shoes, and accessories all right in one place!

What to do when you dont have a closet
I enlisted the help of an Elfa deisgner and came up with an ideal set up for my current need of not having an storage closet for my downstairs. I was able to fit in stylish appearance with pratical effectiveness to organize needs. It looks fabulous. I dont know how I would have stored any of these everyday needs unless I put it all in the basement which was not practical. I love my Elfa.

After so long FINALLY a usable closet
We recently completely removed a very old reach in closet in the master bedroom, leaving a lovely but empty shell of a closet. After having estimates done for a new closet system we decided we could not afford many thousands of dollars to create a usable closet. Then we were watching The Property Brothers on HGTV one evening and they created a very nice and inexpensive closet using using products from The Container Store. We looked online and discovered a store just minutes from us. We went in and found so many products it was difficult to decide where to start. A very helpful designer came up with a design just for us, in a matter of minutes, and the cost was less than $500 AND we could install it ourselves. One evening later we had a lovely and completely functional closet. We have been back to The Container Store a few times to pick up a few more odds and ends. This was a real find!

Search No More!
This is the absolute BEST shelving system, ever!! I have purchased and assembled MANY different types of shelving systems over the years. I was never more impressed with a system than I am with this one. Ordering a custom designed system was a breeze; your website did all of the "figuring" once I submitted basic information. All materials arrived in excellent condition, the directions were straight forward and the easiest step by step directions I have ever attempted to follow. Assembly does NOT require elaborate tools or additional trips to pick extra items up at the hardware store. The system, once installed, is compact, attractive and space efficient. I only wish I had found this system BEFORE I used a far inferior one in two of my closets......now I will have the expense and added hassle of removing the other system so that I can replace all of my closets with this product. Absolutely phenomenal!
