Driftwood Melamine Shelves is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and nice colour We love the natural look of these shelves. The wood is smooth and of good quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive and practical shelving These shelves are attractive but reasonably priced ... just what I was looking for! I was pleased to find these in a size that fit the wall space perfectly and the sand color works really well with my light wood desk. They also have a subtle grainy finish that looks like wood and adds more character than white melamine, especially against a white wall. We purchased the white shelf clip brackets and attaching them to the drywall was straightforward and made for a secure installation. My only complaint is that a couple of the shelves had slightly flawed edges at the corners. However, they didn't bother me enough to take them back to the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase We redid our clothes closet and this shelves look perfect! Modern style. Also easy to install and they are strong! We are strongly satisfied with this purchase. Thank you Elfa and The Container Store for Great Ideas and Perfect Cusomer Service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Shelving The most versatile shelving unit ever. I've have been using Elfa products for the last 12 years. It never fails. Solid construction, easy to assemble and myriad possibilities. I also let friends and family know about Elfa. I often end up installing it for them, but it is so easy to put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Bought these 24 inchers to put in-between my 25 inch end shelves. But had some left over that I wanted to stand alone, not next to any other shelf. I called customer service and found out that if turned both elfa connector wires underneath to the outside I was able to use the leftover 24 inchers by themselves. Note that the 24 inchers will not cover the entire elfa bracket that attaches to the standard. There is a little bit of space left open on the bracket, but I'm happy; its sturdy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not live without this! We have been using our Elfa shelf unit for years. This is the third home we have used it in. Container Store always sends out expert installers to rehang our unit. We collect DVDs and this is used almost every day. It looks great in our new home and we have lots of room for expansion. We could not display our over 1,200 movies without this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy & Versatile These are strong and can hold weight. This is the second shelf I have purchased as a stand-alone item. I use one on a luggage carrier as a plant stand. I put the other one, when needed, on the surface of the stove under the excellent stove light for a stand-up desk. Of course, I check to make sure no burners are hot first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hanging Shelves Ever I love Elfa shelves and the entire system. Very easy to hang (for this type of shelf) and they look great. Very sturdy - they hold a lot of weight. I use them in my home office where they hold books, binders, paper, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Desks very functional and stylish We love our elfa desks and shelving units. We had to remodel our home for our baby, including reconfiguring our guest room and building a nursery. The Elfa desk and shelving solutions provided a functional and stylish solution for our modern home.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Looking But Quality Not Great I purchased the Elfa Office in a Closet (no longer available). The product was VERY easy to install. All of the parts are of a very good quality except for the melamine shelves. I purchased 8 white melamine shelves (various sizes) and the white melamine desktop. Of these 9 pieces, 4 arrived chipped. Unfortunately, the shelves have a set front and top, so you do not have a lot of options in placement making hiding the blemishes difficult. I decided not to try to exchange the shelves because I feel that if nearly half of my pieces arrived damaged, it is very likely that some of the replacement pieces would also arrive damaged. I also do not feel like packing the shelves back up. Overall I am happy with the look of my closet, and once I fill the shelves the blemishes won't be noticeable. However, I would not purchase an Elfa closet system again. I have used similar products in the past and have found those other products to be a little more difficult to install but a little better quality for the same price point. I prefer better quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Melamine Shelf Warning The Elfa shelf system are easy to install and look good, but if you are going to put an entire row of books on a Melamine shelf expect it to bow. If you need sturdy bookshelves, you need to get the more expensive ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Elfa These shelves were to supplement a pre-existing Elfa office set up. There was also a guest room converted into a closet. I love everything Elfa and you will too.
Date published: 2015-01-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks sleek, goes with everything Used these with the Easy hang system to make a nice shelving unit for our home office. The shelves look great and the driftwood finish manages to go with the black stained oak desk and the lighter stained oak credenza. As a bonus the driftwood colour doesn't show dust. Was nice to be able to order a shelf in a deeper width to accomodate a stereo system on one of the the shelves. Ordered by phone and found the customer service helpful in ensuring I had all components necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kid's Homework Station/Shelving I purchased a whole system to handle the kid's books and school work. It was so much fun to create and assemble that I expanded it to hold DVD's and games. I am thrilled with the looks and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dream Shoe Closet We installed the Elfa system for our hallway entrance closet. I wanted a place to put my shoes and also my hubby's shoes. Our closet is long and the side walls were a waste of space. We decided to add shelves on the sides (see the second picture on the bottom). The ladies at the store were amazing. They helped us figure out exactly what we needed based on our needs and the measurements that my hubby had written down. They knew exactly what would meet our needs. The installation was done well and professionally. This system is worth every penny and it adds value to our home if we ever choose to sell it. What girl wouldn't want a shoe closet?! I love my Elfa closet so much and sometimes I stop and admire my closet when I walk past it!!!!! It is the perfect dream shoe closet! I love it!

Date published: 2014-04-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a compliment When I had a vision to turn the guest room's wall into a custom "closet", I pictured drawers in the center, hanging space and a book shelf on the right. After realizing that Elfa would allow my custom design I knew I wanted solid white shelves on that side and everything looks great. While using the same platinum color pieces the solid white shelves stand out and really give the whole look some depth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shelving We purchased this shelving for our bedroom to help organize our ever expanding mountain of "stuff." The shelves look beautiful, and the the convenience of being able to easily adjust their size is such a plus. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bookshelves work great The Container Store made it super easy for me. I used the online chat and within minutes the design, list of items needed, and the cost were ready for me to purchase. I was concerned about installing myself but the videos I watched really made me confident that I could do it myself. The shelves look great in my son's bedroom for his many many books. I definitely secured the top rack in 5 studs to be sure it could hold the weight. Really happy with the product and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE with Elfa Took some extra Elfa parts and created a media and book shelf to in my living room . The driftwood is a nice color that goes with any style and the product is packaged well. One self had a defect, but the awesome employees at the Easton store took care of me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Right Stuff I have installed several brands of shelving/closet systems over the past several years. Elfa is by far the best, especially for a nice, finished look. The quality of the materials and excellent quality control make the installation smooth and straightforward. The Container Store staff is second to none! Their knowledge and expertise is demonstrated from the design to packaging the products after checkout. They are always so patient with us when entering and editing a design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality, Durability and Longevity Use shelves for my books. Have had some for over 12 years, with two moves, and they still look like new. Have bought another 15 or so in the past year and they have the same quality.
Date published: 2014-03-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vertical storage above a desk I purchased and installed a 5' wide shelving system above an existing desk. The store designer helped me figure out the best layout and I was able to install this relatively easily (although this was about as wide as I would be able to handle on my own). The only issue I had was with my 'wavy' walls the shelves don't meet properly along two verticals. I suggest staggering the shelves so that each individual shelf has two supports on either side. This will camouflage wall irregularities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to hang I built shoe shelves for my girl using the Elfa shelving. Looks great at it took me less than 30 minutes.
Date published: 2014-02-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I've heard a lot of great things about elfa products but I will admit I am a cheapskate. This year after dealing with a messy and unorganized workspace. When I saw container store was having their annual elfa sale, I decided to give them a try. I am now an elfa convert! They are perfect - sturdy and solid. My only complaint is, if you are installing the standard uprights on your own, like I did, that they didn't include some sort of spacing guide, paper, cardboard or anything really. The videos on the site are fine, but from what I could tell there is no information on how to properly space out the uprights. Other than that, the shelves have kept me mess free and organized. Note about the photos, the shelves are actually level, for some reason in the photos they don't look like it
Date published: 2014-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! When installed with the corresponding brackets and hardware, the elfa shelving is unsurpassed by any! This shelf was the perfect solution to filling the unused wall space and getting my microwave off of the counter for additional counter space. Love the elfa items!

Community Q&A

what is the difference between the white melamine shelves and the elfa decor shelves? big price difference!

Asked by: lmeglio
They are a different construction. The melamine shelves are a little heavier--laminate over particleboard. The Decor shelves are lighter and have rounded corners. They're also thicker overall--strong honeycomb construction over a birch frame with veneer finish. Thank you for your question. We hope this helps!

For a Elfa pantry shelving design, can you tell me which is stronger (can hold more weight). birch or melamine shelves ?

Asked by: deej1013
Birch Decor shelves will have a thicker structure, therefore bearing more weight.
