elfa Closet Rods
Not just for closets
This item, along with rod holder brackets were a finishing touch to my recent kitchen upgrade.
I used the bar as a paper towel holder , custom cut to the same specifications as our ventilated shelves.
It has been fun creating a custom solution that fits our space needs perfectly.

Smooth Closet Rods
These rods are smooth, won't catch your clothes. I needed them cut to 28 inches and people in the store did that while I waited, excellent service.

recommend with reservations
This is the only item that can be used as a closet rod for elfa so by default you have to recommend it for that, but beware of the following gotchas.....
I put in 36" shelves and ordered 36" rods. Rods are actually 37" to fit the holders properly when you're installing only ONE 36" section. For a run of two or more sections, the end rods need to be cut down by 3/4" and the middle sections by 1-1/2" for everything to fit properly. This isn't taken into account by their onsite design software. If you're ordering online you are unable to specify partial inch measurements. I had to make return trips with specific instructions to trim.
Also note (this is minor) that the labels on these rods leave the most residue of any. Have plenty of goo gone on hand.

love my closet, but....
i recently did my walk-in closet in platinum elfa. i love it. the components were extremely easy to install and are extremely durable. the only issue i had with the elfa components was with the 2 ft closet rods. they are shown on the website as 2 ft rods without any additional measurements. i needed one a bit smaller so i ordered a custom cut rod at 23 inches. it was too short. the 2 ft closet rods are actually 25 inches. the container store is a great company, but they should put exact measurements on their items.
they did send me a replacement 2 ft rod, custom cut to 24 inches.
