Sand & White elfa Office
I really needed a space to make jewelry for my side business. I had a small space and was trying to figure out how to utilize it best. I saw the photo in the catalog and knew it was exactly what I wanted! I took my measurements to the store and they planned it out for me in a short time. I decided to go with all bamboo shelves, in I have a tropical theme in my home. Even though I have installed many Elfa closets before, I just moved into a new place with plaster walls, and since I've never worked with plaster walls before, I decided to have Efla Installation come out to do the job for me. I didn't want to mess up my newly painted accent wall (I painted it the same turquoise blue as in the catalog).
'Tracy' came out yesterday, right at the designated time and was finished in about 1 1/2 hours. He was really nice and very professional and even made some adjustments to the design for me. I spent yesterday putting all my supplies away and I just couldn't be happier! Now I can be more productive.
Thanks Container Store!

My friend wants one too now!
Got this design with a few customizations and I'm loving it. It makes my small office appear so much bigger because of the open-ness of the shelving and by having everything off the floor.
I was able to put it all together myself, except I needed a hand with the long and heavyduty top track. The "Easy Hang" really is easy, and the whole system is way stronger than it looks. Sturdy enough that I trust it with my 32" TV!
I would suggest also getting the Standards Wall Clips to secure the wall Hanging Standards to the wall (at the bottom) to help keep everything from swaying side to side (like if you bump into it or something).
I'm loving my workspace!

This shelving was way easy to install ourselves! We debated paying CS to do it but in the end we decided to try it ourselves and were pleasantly surprised at the ease of installation. They may not be pleased I'm writing this about installation, but the order was a customized unit for our office and included every single piece we needed for a two wall - 5 shelves on each from corner to corner!
GO FOR IT!

What a Creative Space
I absolutely love my Elfa Installation! The room was being used as a home office/craft area/closet. I revamp old T-shirts for my Line Dance Family and, unfortunately, my room was a total disaster and not very conducive to creativity! The Design aspects handled in the Container Store were right on point. My designer was courteous, well informed, and fun. The Installers were professional and neat. Honestly, I donâ¿¿t know how I survived before the renovation and now I never want to leave this room!!
