Platinum elfa Ventilated Shelves
Elfa, a long term friend
My house is on the smaller side so I was very pleased to discover elfa ventilated shelving years ago to organize and maximize my space(s). The first project was the master closet and it went from there to the guest bedroom, garage many times over and my last large project was the pantry after a partial kitchen remodel. It's flexible like a friend over time if/when needs of a space changeâ¿¦ for example in a garage. The longest stretch of elfa there started off as general storage, then a good portion became a lumber rack during several DIY remodels. It was far from showroom pretty but awesome for keeping the pile organized and easy to manage. Now down to trim and carpentry storage the shelving is currently evolving into sports racks for a kayak, bikes along with the general garage items.

Truly customized solutions
My laundry room used for so much more than washing and drying clothes. I use this space to keep my three kitties safe from our terrier and have a small bird cage in here for our parrot (she needs a dark place to sleep at night.) I also use this room for pantry storage and as a work space AND I want it to look nice and happy (we walk through this room from the garage to the rest of the house.) In the past I have cobbled things together to accommodate everything I need the space to do and it has been a nighmare/disaster but now that I have used the ELFA system everything functions and looks great. I doubt anyone else has the same storage challenges but I think if I was able to find a way to make everything work you will be able to as well:)

Wonderful in the Kitchen
We just bought a new home and have a much smaller kitchen than we were used to. We were looking for ways to open up the feel of the kitchen while highlighting our Fiestaware that brings a lot of color into the room. We first thought about cabinets with no doors, but ultimately decided on Elfa because we liked the look and it was cheaper than new wall cabinets. The final product turned out great! We're extremely happy with how it looks and the ventilated shelves hold the heavy weight of all the dishes and mixing bowls without any bowing. We were unfortunately not able to hit any studs with the rail placement, and even with all this weight and a few months of use, no problems. Great stuff!

OMG, elfa is the best ever!
When I moved into a new house, the bland, empty laundry room was not functional at all. I met with a designer at the Container Store to help me plan out what I needed. I was a little worried about the installation, but the online videos were really helpful and installation turned out to be a snap! My laundry room now functions as a laundry, mudroom, and a pantry!
