Walnut Elfa Décor Gliding Shelf is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, functional, and classy. When i was designing my new Elfa system, I was immediately drawn to the gliding shelf. It looks just like the standard decor shelf, but when you need something sitting at the back of the shelf it becomes instantly easy to reach without knocking anything over. It gives a very sophisticated appeal to the system, and the walnut color is perfect for todays modern man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing customizable system I just had a custom designed media center installed in my living room in Walnut and Platinum with these drawers as well as shelves. To begin with, the customer service was wonderful. They were friendly, took the measurements I provided, and we talked through my needs and wants. Then they came up with a brilliant design that does everything I wanted AND is modern and elegant. I had them install for me. It looked easy and Eddie was great! It was all done in about 1.5 hours. After watching, I do think I could've done it on my own. Overall the design make my tiny apartment feel bigger. It looks modern and elegant. The shelving is extremely sturdy and very easy to customize/move around. The drawers have a nice easy glide, and hold a lot of stuff. I highly recommend any Elfa product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Decor Gliding Shelf - Great I went back and bought several of these. I thought this was a silly purchase at first, but being able to easily pull out a shelf with my folded jeans and casual shorts and quickly find the one I want made me realize how practical and convenient this shelf is. No more bending over and looking through a stack of pants. Worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TV stand I have an old Sony TV in the bedroom that still works so I don't want to replace it. Creating an elfa space for it was a brilliant idea. It finally looks like it has a home in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great item I bought these shelvings to redo my home office closet and I couldn't have chosen any better. They work great in the space, they are modern, very spacious and above all, we installed them ourselves, so we were able to cut some expense. They really give a nice touch to the space since I remove the closet doors ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I added this to my closet! I'm so glad swapped out one of my ventilated shelves for the Birch elfa decor Gliding Shelf. I can pull the shelf out in order to rest a shoe box (while taking out or putting away a pair of shoes), or to fold a sweater, without having to leave the closet. When i'm done, I can just slide the shelf back into place, out of the way until I need it pulled out again. Very functional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gliding Shelf My walk-in closest in an Elfa and it is amazing! The gliding shelves are sturdy and quiet, and the design is beautiful. The installation takes time but is not complicated at all. Great product. Well worth the money, and the staff is a great help with design and suggestions for maximizing space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shelves -- Need instructions We bought these shelves to add on to our existing unit. They worked great once we found instructions online. Also, the instruction weren't in text format -- we had to watch an entire video to find what we needed. That said, very happy with these overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome drawers! With these drawers in my closet, I don't have to move bulky dressers anymore!! They are strong, and the decorative molding gives it such an expensive look. This elfa has moved with me several times and saved me a load of money every time I reuse it.

Community Q&A

Do the gliding shelves come in 18" width?

Asked by: KT23
The Gliding Décor Shelves are only available in 24" width.
Answered by: DJones

What is the weight limit for this shelf when extended fully?

Asked by: ChefChris
Since the weight capacity can be affected by many things like wall construction, the items stored, and the installation process itself, we do not have a specific weight capacity for the Elfa solid shelving. If installed properly and used with the Elfa system of hardware, framework, and brackets, it will support a considerable amount of evenly distributed, static weight.
