Platinum elfa Reach-In
After more than a decade with a guest room closet that was way under-utilized and yet somehow still stuffed to overflowing, decided to turn it into part-gallery and part dressier clothes/shoes storage. With the help of an in-store Elfa designer, we came up with a multi-purpose configuration -- part display, part storage -- that matched my decor (platinum and birch).
When you open the doors, Mary Poppins and a very old bear are the centerpiece (without taking up too much room). Even with that "display" area, there is more than 20" of long hanging space, 2 huge (still empty) drawers and tons of extra shoe storage! The pull-out shoe-rack holds so many shoes! PURE GENIUS! Lots of room to grow! The top racks (with some purging yet to go) hold a tremendous amount of memorabilia like yearbooks, photo albums, binders, etc.
This closet is like one-stop, in-house shopping when getting dressed for an event -- dresses, shoes, and accessories all right in one place!

After so long FINALLY a usable closet
We recently completely removed a very old reach in closet in the master bedroom, leaving a lovely but empty shell of a closet. After having estimates done for a new closet system we decided we could not afford many thousands of dollars to create a usable closet. Then we were watching The Property Brothers on HGTV one evening and they created a very nice and inexpensive closet using using products from The Container Store. We looked online and discovered a store just minutes from us. We went in and found so many products it was difficult to decide where to start. A very helpful designer came up with a design just for us, in a matter of minutes, and the cost was less than $500 AND we could install it ourselves. One evening later we had a lovely and completely functional closet. We have been back to The Container Store a few times to pick up a few more odds and ends. This was a real find!

Excellent solution for son's small room
We needed to make better use of our son's TINY bedroom. With the bed, there was only room for either a dresser OR a desk. We really needed the desk.
This closet organizer replaced his dresser. The amount of space is unreal, and everything is so well put together. We had the installation, too, and the installer could not have been any better.
Now we're planning on a closet organizer for our master bedroom and daughter's bedroom, too!

Elfa Closet System
Most versatile closet system ever! Hanging space, drawers, shelves, hooks and my favorite: the pants hanger. Every closet in my house has an Elfa system. We designed and saved each one in the store with the help of an expert designer. The system is easy to install, only a slight learning curve on the first one. I love my closets and how organized they are.
