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.

Best drawer systems!
The Elfa closet drawers are the perfect tool for anybody to get clothing and other items organized in a closet. Whether you are new to getting organized and need as much help as you can get, or if you are an organizing queen like me, this is the perfect tool. Drawers come in a variety of sizes for every possible use, the mesh is a perfect solution to getting a handle on small items and keeping them in place, and this is attractive stuff. I love it and have it in every closet.

Nothing compares to Elfa!
I love the elfa drawer systems. I first bought them when rehabbing my kitchen to store everything that was in my cabinets during the transition. It was great having it on wheels to roll around during construction. Afterwards, we repurposed the drawers and used them in the garage. Now my husband loves them too. From there our desire for more elfa drawers grew! We have several more in the garage now, and I have elfa drawers in all my closets. They are great for deep closets - you never lose things in the back of the closet. I think my favorite is storing all my shoes in 5 elfa 2-drawer systems that line the bottom of my closet. No more digging for shoes, and it never gets messed up! Elfa is light weight - even I can assemble, but very strong and durable so it works in the garage too. Elfa has made my life easier and saves me time by keeping things organized. My favorite! It's the first place I go when looking for storage options. I've looked for comparable products at the big hardware stores, but it doesn't exist. Now I don't waist my time - I just buy elfa.

Great option to use closet space well
I have this drawer set and put it in my closet to sit under my hanging shirts that are on a bar - it fits perfectly and allows so much extra storage space in the small closet for folded items like sweaters and PJs. Really helped me make the most out of the space!
