Walnut & Platinum elfa dÃ©cor Walk-In Master Closet
My closet is my happy place
I saw an article in a consumer magazine about closet design. Elfa was recommended but was also the most expensive. I wasn't sure which direction to go until I was discussing it with a coworker who had elfa closets. She swore by her elfa closets which sold me. I printed the worksheet and made an appointment with a designer. The designer and I created a new closet and set the installation date. The installer arrived promptly and was helpful to show me how the pieces fit together and how versatile they are. As I was moving clothes and storage boxes back into the closet, I had to make adjustments. It was effortless for me to move shelves and add rows of baskets to fit my needs. Now I understand and agree with the consumer magazine. There are THREE important things I want to share. 1. Flexibility (who knew I needed more low shelves for heavy storage boxes) 2. The ease of returning unwanted parts back to the store 3. Packaging is minimal and easy to recycle.

So worth it!
I am in LOVE with our platinum & walnut master closet. We had it custom designed, and at first I was planning to just use the design to use some other system to save some money. After thinking about the installation and having people at the store show us how easy it was, we decided to save up, wait for the sale and splurge on the real thing. I have NO regrets.
In ~7 total hours, me, my husband and my dad were able to install the whole thing, and even start to get our stuff moved into it. Aside from a paper cut, nobody got injured - and with the exception of some frustration trying to install a drawer (until we realized we had it upside down) - it was super easy to install.
I've worked with my dad on a number of home improvement projects, and there is usually swearing and a little bit of yelling or complaining about what we're working with. This time, my dad was even impressed with the thoughtful and useful design, the flexibility of the system (we could move stuff around until it was where we wanted it), and the attention to detail - like the design of the spacers that secure the fascia. It's just awesome and if we move, we'll do it again. Before that, I want to tackle some of our smaller closets too!

Better than those more expensive closet systems
I took advantage of the annual elfa sale and I am so glad I did. My Closet is walk in but was a challenge to design the perfect elfa system since it has odd dimensions. The designer was patient as we tried different designs and she listed to my opinions. I chose the platinum with walnut and increased usable space by at least 20% or more. it is beautiful. The rods are adjustable and easy to reach and the drawers are great. Large and easy glide I now have more space. And I love the valet hangers- get two, you will use them. I used the delivery and installation service and it was great- both men were courteous and professional. I attached a before and after but the after pic does not do the system justice. Next year I tackle my long double closet- can't wait

We just moved and had to have the elfa system in our closets! Our other house has them and we love them.
The new house has a very strange format, with weird angles and the elfa specialist was the amazing. She helped us get the most for our space.
All of our neighbors now have "closet envy" and will be going to the Container Store to get theirs.
