Cabinet-Sized elfa Drawer Frames
My new apartment's bedroom closet had a narrow jog. Wondering what to do, I searched online for shelves that would fit. Nothing. Then while at the Container Store designing two new closets, I saw the Elfa shelves. After careful measuring, I bought the tallest unit with the mesh drawers and they are perfect. They fit all my undergarments and more. And they match perfectly.

Works well in my closet built-ins
I have a custom built-in closet but as I have lived with the new closet, I realized I needed more drawer space. Due to the depth of the built-ins I chose the Cabinet sized drawer units but because there are feet on the bottom of the frames, I had to install a board on top of the built-in base - I needed about 1/2" more depth. I chose not to have the wall hanging Elfa units as I would have had less drawer space due to the pre-existing floor-ceiling dividers of the builtins. The various widths of the cabinet-sized elfa Drawer Frames allowed me to maximize the space I had and these work great!

Elfa--not just for closets anymore!
I have my van set up for camping trips, with a kitchen in the back. For years, I had a thrown-together "system" of plywood and milk crates. Everything was jumbled together and hard to locate. Now look! Separate areas for food, garbage, and dishes--and with the extra room that all this efficiency created, I now have room for a wash basin (in one of the drawers), which makes things much more pleasant and convenient. Elfa was the only brand I found that offered a suitably-sized option for this application--way more options than any other brand.

It's a keeper!
I don't know if I am the only one that had this problem, but I had a lot of difficulty assembling the frame with a mallet. Did I miss something in the instructions? I finally decided to apply some WD40 and the problem was solved. Just need to be careful that you do not get the WD40 on anything else. The unit adds convenient drawer storage to a plain cabinet.
