White elfa Reach-In Pantry
First Elfa Project
My pantry was my 1st elfa experience and I love it!

Awesome product, very easy to install and will help you get organized in the kitchen or wherever. In terms of installation, you have to instrall the top track, which is easy to do if you have a power drill and level. I have also repurposed my shelving, which required that some of my shelves to be cut to size. Took the shelves in question to the store and they cut them for me free of charge. Biggest plus point is that the shelving looks great and is a easy way to get organized, while adding to the resale value of your space.

Our pantry is not standard size so we had the elfa shelves cut to size - Container store did it immediately on site so we could take home. Easy to install, and very strong (the woman doing a demo at the store actually hung from the shelves!) Our previous pantry shelves would bend if we put too many items on them - now we can put flour/sugar bins, canned food, etc with no problem.
Also love the accessories - plastic shelf liners help even out the surface yet are significantly cheaper than getting a solid shelf.
The inexpensive plastic baskets (see on photo - top shelf) to organize like items for easy access. These are especially nice for reaching the overhead shelves to just pull down the basket instead of climbing a stepstool to reach the back. Beware the handles are not the strongest, so I would not recommend things as heavy as canned food in these baskets.
We also got a couple of the sliding drawer baskets to put on the floor which work well for snacks and smaller items like granola bars to pack in lunches.

elfa transformed my tiny, one-shelf closet into a useful & organized small appliance pantry. Everything is within easy reach, on sturdy, attractive shelving. TCS Installer worked hard and did a great job. I asked him to measure 3 more closets, and now have 3 more transformed spaces, for linens, cleaning, craft & records storage! Sometimes I open the doors just to admire them.
