Sand & White elfa Home Office
I want to live in my closet!
I had no idea what to do with this space in my hallway. Everyone has said "what great storage" but It has just been a catch all space for junk, from golf clubs to unicycles, to bowling balls. But Elfa has changed my life for the better. I now have a place for my paperwork, and better yet a workspace for my kids to do their homework. Little did I know that this little closet in the eaves of my house could be my favorite place in the afternoon.
The designers were really helpful. They listened to me and made great use of the space. I used the "pick up from store" option for delivery. That was almost the best part. The kids and I went on a Friday night and when I got to the pick up location, I simply called the store and they brought it out to me. It was so, so simple. They had everything packaged in these recyclable bags with the hardware and instructions separated and labeled. Installation was a breeze, the instructions were very clear, and the whole system was up in about 1/2 hour.
The only design change I made was that I added a shelf. The designers did not think another one would fit, but after the system was up, it fit perfectly.
I had some extra parts, which I returned and that was easy too, and the price was just about the same as the additional shelf. If I had to say one thing slightly not positive, it was that the designers should have told me that the hanging files were additional, i would have bought them at the same time, I had to make an additional trip to the store to get them, Not a big deal, but worth mentioning When I installed my system it was 11:00 at night and I wanted to start filing, but with no folders, I had to wait till the next day.
Overall, Very, very happy with the entire procedure and I can't wait to Elfa my next space!

Elfa is simply THE BEST!!!
Finally was able to redo the home office with an Elfa desk and shelving. Already have two closets done in Elfa, and wish everything could be. Had Elfa in previous home too. Absolutely love everything about it. Clean lines, easy to assemble and install (hubby took care of that part) easy to keep clean, tidy and organized, plus it can be moved about if necessary. There's just nothing like Elfa in my view. One cannot go wrong!

FABULOUS system for my Lego builders
My husband and son are avid Lego builders. And, I do mean AVID. I had essentially lost my dining room to their hobby, and it was cumbersome to display and store their Legos. Friends would come over, and it was ALWAYS a mess. SO, during last year's Elfa sale I converted the play room to be a permanent "Lego work station". I set up a project table (stand alone desk) with several Container Store storage units. This is FABULOUS because 2+ people can sit at the table. The storage units divide the parts for easy building. On the wall, I installed solid shelving for display. This is also FABULOUS because we can customize the shelving and add on, as we need. The only caveat to this whole system is the fact that we CAN add on - it's seems to give my husband the excuse to buy more Legos because we CAN always add more Elfa to accommodate. But there are worse things in life than a ever growing pile of Legos in one's house. I'm just grateful to Elfa!

AMAZING idea for home office
I have a small home office that needs to double as a guest room. With this elfa Shelving against one wall I can do both and then SOME! It is amazing and I'd recommend this combo to anyone.
