Walnut & White elfa dÃ©cor freestanding Walk-In Closet
Best closet investment
I wanted to organize one wall of a small room being used as a clothes closet. Other storage systems looked either too utilitarian and flimsy or too elaborate and expensive, so I decided to give the Elfa closet storage system a try and couldn't be happier with the results. The in-store design service (Brian at the Sixth Avenue store) helped configure a solution for storing folded clothing and handbags in a 4â¿¿-wide space. The eight medium-sized drawers hold a surprising amount of shirts and sweaters, now sorted by color. The drawers glide easily, and I especially like that the drawer positions and shelf heights are adjustable so you can change the arrangement if your storage needs change. Being able to do this is an advantage over permanently-built in storage systems. The freestanding system means no holes in the plaster walls of my old house, and the whole unit can be moved if desired. I hesitated before adding the cost of dÃ©cor drawers and shelf trim, but the clean, polished appearance was worth the investment. The instructions were easy to follow--my son and I did the assembly ourselves.
I am very happy with the improved look and function of the space will definitely want to add more Elfa components to complete my closet organization project.

My husband and I moved to NYC this year. We love our apartment and our nieghborhood with a couple of caveats - and one of those is that our bedroom has no closet. We went to the Container Store and a design staff member helped us design the perfect closet to fit our needs. It holds both my and my husband's clothes, 20 pairs of shoes, purses, and even has a vanity (using the home office deks) built in with a pullout drawer for my makeup and frequently worn jewelry. Competent, professional installers came to our home and installed it. Best of all, it is free-standing, so I'll probably still get my deposit back when I move.
It's an expensive investment, but totally worth it in our book!

Love my freestanding Elfa!
I was so happy to see that Elfa has a great freestanding unit. My husband has Elfa in his closet, but I've take over a bedroom as my closet, so we didn't want to install the strips in the walls. The freestanding unit was the perfect solution--much better and far more versatile than the rolling racks I had been using!
