Walnut & Platinum elfa dÃ©cor Master Walk-In Closet
We purchased an Elfa closet system and installed it ourselves. It was so incredibly easy to install. All the pieces fit so well together and everything is so sturdy. It looks beautiful and has given us SO much more space. Love it!

Elfa Master Closet makeover
What was I thinking to wait 3yrs to do this ?? Our mb closets are now like walking into a dept store , everything is organized, easily accessable (ever bought 2 of something because you didn't know you already had it?) WOW ! Even the hubby (*who couldn't understand WHY we should spend the money to redo the closets when the 'builder' already provided some wire shelving and rods) he got caught up in the FREE elfa design and now has a closet unique to him! Can't say how we will NEVER be without Elfa again!
When it is on Sale is the best time to load up and do every closet.

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.

What an amazing, durable setup! It has helped the merger of 2 people moving in together- going from 2 closets into 1. We don't plan to live in this house forever so it will be easy to leave the skeleton in place and take the shelves to put in our now future home (hopefully a bigger closet). Thanks to the new closet we have now we can BOTH have room!
