Birch Elfa Decor Shelves is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from There was a glitch but it was rectified right away We bought an Elfa closet system in Birch for our Master closet and both of these shelves would not fit in the track. We came to find out that the rubber pieces that connected to the shelves were both for the right side! I called right away and immediately received 2 new shelves which had the right and the left side rubber pieces and it clicked in right away. It arrived much faster than I expected. Other than this glitch, our closet looks amazing and we're so happy with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Modern Elfa Decor Shelves I love these shelves! They are modern, lightweight, and easy to install. I used them for my home office. They are expensive but worth every penny. I would recommend to anyone who prefers a modern look. I will buy these again for my living room when I design my freestanding elfa decor shelf system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied with Purchase I'm very glad I was able to have my master closet redone. I'm very satisfied at the product. I recommend 100 times over. I was skeptical at first but was blown away by the final product. I'm very satisfied as the final outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great match with Gladiator workbench (as a desk) I used these shelves in my home office to get things off the desktop that make it cluttered. I was able put the printer, modem and router on the shelves I used the Gladiator Silver Tread 6' Solid Hardwood Workbench (SKU 10076382) as a desk for a more industrial look. The workbench is not an exact match, but coordinates very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Organized Job Well Done Lived in our new home for 6 months before deciding exactly what we needed in the way of organized closets. Container Store & their designers were terrific! Master closet now has almost double the usable space & our guest room closet has the perfect mix of shelves, hanging & baskets...just hope company doesn't decide to stay too long! Installers were quick, knowledgeable, tidy & professional...sorry I don't have more closets to organize. Thanks much CS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice but pricey I like that these shelves are attractive and easy to install, and they're pretty light so it makes it even easier to install them yourself. I found that the left side of the shelf was a bit harder to snap into place than the right side, but I'm not sure if that's really the case or just because I'm a righty. If I could change one thing about these shelves it would be their price point. I wish they were more affordable, as doing a whole unit with them gets pricey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Times have changed This is my second full wall system and I was disappointed to find that the shelves have become slightly cheap. The bracket system on the side is now made of plastic and doesn't snap into the brackets easily or with the satisfactory snap like the old ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, easy to install, and looks great It took me less than an hour to install the walnut decor shelves, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. They look great! I worried at first about the cost, but I appreciate that these are lighter and easier to work with than the melamine shelves. And if you plan to move around a lot, investing in a lighter shelving and storage options makes sense!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moving on up! I replaced my microwave cart & moved the microwave up to my new Elfa shelving on the wall. I have a small kitchen with very little counter space & very few cabinets so I purchased these shelves for my cookbooks, canisters, & microwave. I couldn't be happier with it. I have pets & I used to have to move the microwave cart every time I sweep my floor but not anymore! I think I have an Elfa addiction!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice except mounting scheme These shelves are very well fabricated and in most respects are very nice. However the mounting scheme is the worst in any Elfa product. The latching scheme consists of about eight tiny plastic thin fitting tabs. Any jar to the shelving result in these tabs lifting off the mounting brackets. It all comes tumbling down. Having had these expensive shelves for two years I have finally decided to put on a J channel extrusion to redesign the mounting scheme. I am also making a holddown scheme as this is a major source of the problem. This is tedious and a pain but I am not throwing out $360 worth of shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shelving! I bought a custom designed shelf and drawer unit using this line. They are simply beautiful. The shelves are made of fine hardwood with a tasteful finish and the drawers glide smoothly. If you're wanting a smart look yet practical storage unit, you will love these. By the way, it was pleasure to work with the Container Store. Their designers helped me achieve the best design for my space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this closet! To outfit our 8ft closet with the elfa system was our best decision, we love it in all aspects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice I purchased this item to use as a desktop. The dark wood color is a beautiful contrast with the elfa Platinum shelving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walnut and Platinum... Today's contemporary look. The Decor Shelf is essential to my Elfa system. Its wooden appeal and walnut color bring elegance and style to my dresser unit. Its large size creates a wide and deep space to hold more than you think it can. Once set properly on the shelf bracket, it holds a good deal of weight too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional I love my Elfa wall shelving! I was finally able to unpack all of my books (with room to spare for future growth). I had it installed due to the length (9') and with the sale price. The installer was quick (couple of hours) and cleaned up after himself. The only negative is I would recommend a 12" shelf max above a desk rather than the 16" (for head clearance). I would also love to see some kind of lighting system designed to go with this. I jerry rigged an LED tape light around the back of the pin board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Beverage Center We made a beverage center in our formal dining room that we wouldn't use if it wasn't for Elfa. We have plans to use the same material on the other wall which is 16' We had Elfa install and it took no time at all and LOOKS GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Functional and Space Saving I recently purchased the decor shelves and desktop to build a desk set up in my home office. I was able to reuse some leftover standards and shelf brackets from another project and integrate the desk shelves with some existing bookshelves and a filing cabinet. The end result was spectacular! I have so much room to store office things. I love the versatility of Elfa and the ease to assemble something so polished looking,

Can this shelf be placed on a slider to pull out and push back in? If so, what else do I need to purchase?

Where are the 24" shelves?

I purchased an elfa system a few years back, and have 24" wide shelves. I want to expand it by adding on shelves, but I can't find them on the website. Have they been phased out? :( What options do I have?
Asked by: EmilyPT
On Elfa's website FAQs, I see: Are the components of my Classic storage that I bought 10 years ago compatible with the ones you offer today? And the answer is: Absolutely – this is part of the elfa concept; you can always trust previous elfa components to fit perfectly with newer collections and products. The decision to not offer 24" shelves runs counter to the elfa concept, and is frustrating to those who have made a sizable investent over the years in this system.

Are the Elfa Sand and Elfa birch colors close the same color?

I want to use the birch decor shelves on one wall of a walk in closet and the sand on another so they won't be touching, do they look close enough?
Asked by: sportyblue
Our Birch elfa décor Shelves are actual wood veneer while our elfa Sand Melamine Solid Shelves are a man-made plastic laminate over MDF. The finishes are not the same, but they do coordinate. When used on separate walls of the same space, the compatibility of the two finishes is simply a matter of personal preference and taste. For further assistance, please contact us at 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246).

What are the wood shelves finished with and what is the honeycomb made from? Are these no VOC products? Does Elfa have environmental certifications?

I would like to find out whether there is an off-gassing from Elfa products. Additionally, how green is the production process? Thank you
Asked by: BrooklynArchitect
elfa décor shelves are made with a solid Birch frame with a honeycomb interior. The honeycomb is made from a corrugated material. They have a birch veneer on top and bottom that is stained with a water based lacquer.

Do these shelves require screws or the connector to attach to the brackets?

It doesn't say or show how the Elfa solid shelves are attached to the brackets. Do they just lay on top or do they require screws or the connectors? Screws I saw in one picture: https://www.containerstore.com/s/elfa-shelf-screws/d?productId=10001770&q=elfa%20shelf Connectors I saw in another: https://www.containerstore.com/s/white-solid-shelf-connectors/d?productId=10009296&q=elfa%20shelf
Asked by: MissyOrganized
No extra hardware is required to attach our Elfa Decor Shelves to the appropriate Elfa Ventilated Wire Shelf Brackets. The Elfa Shelf Screws and Elfa Connectors you reference are for use with our Melamine Shelves.
