White elfa dÃ©cor Shelves
Elfa Decor Shelving
My husband and I possess a lot of books, magazines, journals, and maps. At our last home, we had bookcases built, but when we moved, we couldn't take the shelves with us. Having used Elfa in my laundry and a pool closet, I knew I didn't want the wire mesh shelves, so I kept waiting and waiting.
Voila! Elfa came out with the Decor shelves, and that is perfect for transforming a room into an office!
We purchased the 16" w x 17"d x 1.25"h shelving. Our feature wall has 82"w x 97"h of working space. My husband desperately needed filing storage to accommodate legal size file folders and accordion folders, so I bought three 7-tier Drawer systems, put them on casters, turned them sideways, and built the bookcases around the filing systems. The depth of the shelves and the sideways depth of the filing drawers compliment one another perfectly!
I bought 12 shelves, but after building the shelving from the bottom up, I should have purchased 15 shelves. (I will be adding another row!) I have the space I thought I might have at the far right, and I will be putting two stacked Narrow Cabinet Bath Drawers there.
The customer service was excellent! Mary Beth and her team worked really hard to work with such an odd space. This is my fourth Elfa shelving system, and I will continue to purchase The Container Store products because of their design ingenuity and superior customer service.

Beautiful Shelving System
I used the freestanding Elfa system to build an entertainment center, bookcase, and printer storage. To cut costs, I used the regular shelves for the bulk of the project. I'd love to swap them out for these decor shelves over time, though, because the decor shelves are just so much nicer looking overall.
I assembled the entire system in less than an hour by myself.
I especially like the 83" brackets. I live in a small space with high ceilings, so utilizing vertical space is a must.

We love this closet!
To outfit our 8ft closet with the elfa system was our best decision, we love it in all aspects.

White Elfa decor shelves
We needed extensive storage for our rambunctious 5-year old's many many toys and games in her small bedroom. I knew the decor shelves were typically used inside closets, but its rounded corners were perfect for safety and to prevent injuries should she graze by the corners too quickly. We love them and so does she!!
