Walnut & Platinum elfa dÃ©cor Master Walk-In Closet
Small Master Closet - MAXIMIZED!
During a remodel of master bath and closet, we went from a closet that was 8'x4' with little to no storage to one that is only 9'x5', but thanks to elfa organization - we are THRILLED with the amount of clothing and shoes that fit into the new space!!! Thanks Container Store

I got the walnut & platinum elfa set about a year ago, and I'm, well, kind of obsessed with it. I live in a house built in 1906...tons of character, seriously lacking in closet space. My solution: turn bedroom #2 into a closet. Now everything has a place, making it easier to stay organized. My favorite part - sliding shoe racks. Except now it's facilitating my shoe addiction...hmm. : )
My next project...elfa walnut & platinum office decor. Can't wait!!

Elfa = Marital Bliss
My husband and I have been having closet issues since day one of moving into our new home. Now the home is not so new (4 years old) and closet creep has been getting the best of us. My clothes kept finding their way over to his side of the closet. He would complain that he could not find his own clothes because my clothes seemed to consume his.
For some time I had suggested the elfa solution to all our closet woes. I refused to purchase what was cheap and easy to find at the local hardware warehouse, and held out for the quality I knew we needed.
Finally when things just became more than he could bear, he agreed to installing the elfa closet solution in platinum and walnut. The walnut matches our bedroom furniture perfectly. It looks so nice we often want to leave the closet door open so we see our completed project.
For us the planning part was not so easy, because our closet has11 walls. Yes, 11 wall. It is a bizarre shaped closet and is not a big closet by any stretch of the imagination.
I tried to work with some folks online, by dumping the closet and the dimensions into Viso, but it was still a challenge communicating our needs. I finally decided to go through the Rockville location and they were on the ball and went above and beyond to help us maximize our funky closet space.
In the end we are so happy and so excited to consider other places in our home to elfa-ize!
1. Save up for the elfa solution if you can't purchase it right away. Do not settle for cheap imitations!
2. Purchase wall by wall, if need be.
3. Hit the twice-yearly elfa sales events for major savings!
4. Work with an onsite consultant.
5. Take a demo lesson on how to install.

My closet looks like a boutique!!
I had two in-store helpers design my elfa closet keeping my built in mirror and two built in dressers. Both designers were wonderful in building the elfa system around my existing dressers and making it look great. Our closet is so big we had the installation people put it in. I got all new huggable hangers(they are a must) and put all of our clothes back in the closet. The difference is incredible! I can see everything so much better. My favorite thing is the pullout pant racks. Both my husband and I got 2 each and they are super handy. I also got the jewelry drawer and it makes it easy to match jewelry with clothes when I can see everything. I HIGHLY recommend elfa!! The only con is now my husband realizes I don't need anymore shoes. :)
