Platinum elfa Mesh Drawers
Best and most simple design I have ever seen
My wife and I have bought numerous shelf and storage Elfa systems. We first bought them for our kids' toys but, once we started to use them, we saw their versatility and completely fell in love with them, not only for their performance but because they are actually quite nice to look at. In fact, almost all our kids' room is now decorated around their Elfa storage and shelf systems. I have seen my two kids (the oldest now 5 and the youngest 2 1/2) climb on them, pull them, beat them, etc. (not that I am proud of this because each time I see this I feel like they are beating on one of my most precious objects) and they are intact, i.e., they look exactly the same as the day we bought them. In addition, we live in an apartment in NYC and as one would expect the space is always an issue. They have really helped us keep our things organized and very extremely easy to put together... so, everything around the experience has been extremely positive (so much so that every time we pass by The Container Store, on 6th Avenue, my wife tells me that I would rather be there than wherever we are going).

So versatile! I've used these all over my house!
I love the Elfa System but mostly the mesh drawers! I used them inside cabinets in the kitchen when I had a cabinet that was too deep and now I can slide the drawers out and reach everything. I used them in the garage, again inside cabinets, and also on open shelves that always looked a mess and now look orderly. This time I was having a tile floor installed in our storage room and decided to tackle the wall of bookcases holding electronic parts. It came out fantastic and shrunk my wall of mess into a small area and on wheels to be moved around! And they took only minutes to put together! So awesome!!!

Narrow Drawer System (Elfa)
I was able to custom order this drawer unit which fit perfectly in a narrow space under my kitchen island. Lots of extra storage in an otherwise awkward space!

elfa inspired work bench
I used the elfa silver mesh drawer system to complete a workbench that was otherwise built entirely of recycled/repurposed materials. At first I was skeptical the framework for the drawers would be tough enough for my shop tools. it proved to work perfectly. The drawers may be easily removed and placed on top when a closer look is required. I love the modular design and ability to change the drawer configuration at will. All of my tools are within easy reach when at the bench and with the label holders I can quickly find what I need.
