Translucent Elfa Ventilated Wire Shelf Liners is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for other uses I use these on my Elfa ventilated shelves BUT I also use them to line all of my shelves and drawers in the house. I LOVE them. You cannot tell they are on the shelves. They are easily cleanable and they allow the true color of your shelves to show through. Perfect for a new home. Pots and pans slide easily on them. They are time consuming to cut but I use a quilt ruler and box cutter. Well worth the efffort for the end result. My only complaint is that they are NOT the size advertised. For instance a 12 “ width is really only 11 1/2 inches. A 20 “ width is only 19 etc. 16” is 15 1/2”. SO if you are expecting a certain width beware. Lengths however, are true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, but not necessary I like that these keep crumbs and small items from falling through, but definitely not a necessity to organizing the closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa shelf liners In addition to owning an Elfa closet and many stand alone units, I have learned to use Elfa's Shelf liners for many reasons. Such as, to line ALL my kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Elfa's liners makes it so easy to clean and items slide along them with a breeze. Love this product....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big impact for your pocketbook Our new house came with wire racks in the pantry. This seemed great until you put boxes of pasta and canned goods on it, they were constantly tipping over. I purchased these translucent liners for just a couple of dollars each and all of my food sat snugly on the shelf. My daughter even opened the pantry door and said, "Where did all this food come from?" I told her "It's the same amount of food it just fits on the shelf better!" and I could have gone out and even bought more because it gave me even more storage space. Awesome bang for a little buck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small kitchen closet becomes pantry We had a designer make a design for our small closet in our kitchen. Our house was built in 1955 and it was a coat closet and we had another coat closet in hall near kitchen. We used elfa shelving with shelf liners. Very easy to install. We also added a door shelving unit. The whole project was installed in under 3 hours.(2 people)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refridgerator Wire Shelf Liner After years of watching items in our refrigerator at our cabin tip over every time I opened or shut the door, I picked up two of these shelf liners at the Container Store and put them to work. WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT! Not one item tipped over in 10 days of non-stop door slamming! They wipe clean in a snap and DO NOT STAIN! Outstanding Product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shelf Liner I purchased these for my baskets to sit on. They work wonderful and are very durable for the price. I bought the 12x3 liner as shown in the photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS! It's amazing how a simple product like this can make you feel so different about your space. Nothing slips thru those wire shelves. The liner helps keep it all nice, neat and organized. There are a lot more products here to tidy up your space but this is the fundamental basic needed for a wire shelf. Even the price is perfect so there's no excuse not to buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Translucent Elfa ventilated shelf liners I brought these for my pantry organization and to make little items stay put on the wire shelving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and clean Did 2 closets and my wife will have me do every closet in my house. The Container Store gives you everything you need , including a design for your closets. Prices are great and the quality of the product is excellent. If you have any closet that looks like a mess, measure it and go to the container store. Great way to get rid of unwanted items and organize what you are keeping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indispensible! A few tips for a good fit... These liners make the ventilated shelving so much more useable. No more lines on the clothing, no small things falling through. A FEW TIPS, THOUGH: - When using with elfa Decor trim, place the liner on first, then the trim piece. Otherwise, it won't fit well front to back. - When using two on a 4' shelf, you have to overlap them a little bit in order to fit the bracket covers on. Sometimes, with the bracket covers and the decor trim, it buckles a bit so you have to fiddle with it a bit for a good fit. - I was told I'd have to cut them to fit between dividers on a basket shelf, but I found that the decor dividers fit fine right over the liner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must For My Wife I have put in Elfa shelving in 6 closets in our house now. My wife insists on the shelf liners in all of the closets. The shelf liners make it much easier for clothing and towels to slide them in and out. I did not use them in the mud room for the detergents and cleaners or in the game closet. The rest of the closets have them, and to her credit, they are very nice to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shelf Product I purchased these shelf liners to use with my existing pantry shelves and they are fantastic. Pre-cut depths fit most standard shelves. The width wasn't an exact match but I just bought two liners for each shelf and overlapped them - it worked great. Such an improvement, nice for my smaller boxes and items to sit firmly on the shelf rather than toppling over because of the space between the shelf wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finishing touches I recently installed an Elfa Closet system in my bedroom. Have been haunting my husband for a few years to do this. I finally won! It came out great and we both love it. The final finishing touches were fun shopping for as well. The shelf liners are great cause they prevent the line marks from the shelves and prevent straps from handbags falling through the grids or getting stuck when pulling them off the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wire shelf liners Just lay them on top of the shelf and no-more wire lines on your sweaters and clothing. Also terrific in the pantry to keep items from falling through the shelves. If you have an area that doesn't require the liner just skip that space. Easy, clean and works terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth it i originally didn't buy these liners because i thought it was an unnecessary extra to get liners for the ventilated shelves, but after purchasing a couple, i think i'll go back and buy more. it allows the shelves to let light through and to see the contents of higher up shelves without worrying about things falling through the shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressing Up the Shelves I had purchased an elfa shelving for a pantry in November and since it wasn't on sale, I opted not to buy the liners, but it just made the shleves look unfinished and small items where falling through, so after purchasing 2 closets while the sale is going on I went back and ordered the ones for the pantry. I love the finish look of the all the closets now. Mia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fix! We purchased the shelf liners for our current wire shelves in the pantry and throughout the house. They made it easy to give an inexpensive make-over to several closets with those wire shelves that are impossible to stand bottles on. You can still see through the liners enough to tell what is on the upper shelves when looking from below. Would have loved to do the entire elfa system, but with a student in college, this will do for now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shelf Liners I got these for the two shelves in my new ELFA bedroom closet that hold my sweaters after reading a review that said they would prevent "lines" on the sweaters. They are just a very nice finishing touch and as with all the ELFA product I couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. A must for those of us who stack clothing direclty on elfa ventilated shelving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement to Pantry! These shelf liners fit perfectly on regular 12" wire shelving that was standard our new home. It make the selves more useable since objects set more stably on the shelf and small objects don't fall through or tip over. The liners are very inexpensive too! Unfortunately, they only come in lengths up to 3' and my shelves are 4' You can put two 2' next to each other, but will have a seam in middle of shelf and double the price (which is not much).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait I looked a very long time for this product. I didn't like the wire shelves in my pantry because things kept falling over. Voila' I stumbled onto these at a local store. Very pleased with them, easy to install and clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and very useful I bought these on the recommendation of a Container Store rep -- he said they'd keep my towels from getting lines -- and I have since bought many more as I continue to find new uses for them. I have found that they not only keep my towels from getting lines, they make it much easier to slide items in so tallish stacks don't bunch up as I put them away. Using them in conjunction with Elfa baskets has made it very easy to get hairbrushes, etc put away. Just throw them into their spot in the closet, no care necessary. My newest favorite use for them is in the kitchen -- for cake layers! They are invaluable for stacking layers and preventing breakage as you move from pan to cooling rack, and particularly if you torte cakes (cut the layers into multiple thinner layers). I cut them into squares first. Two tips: If you have Elfa basket dividers, you must cut the liners around the dividers. The dividers can't just go on top. This makes it a bit more cumbersome if you're frequently moving dividers, but they're still completely worth it. I've found it's easy to cut a perfectly perpendicular line by placing the sheet of liner on my kitchen counter next to my stove. The groove between the stove and counter is an easy guide for scissors and if you line up the front edge with your counter you're guaranteed a very neat cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect solution I have another brand of wire shelving in my pantry I was about to have my husband replace. I was tired of everything falling over and thru. This liner is the perfect solution. It is much thicker than most shelf liners, and items slide well on it.
