Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to organize I bought two of the narrow 7 frames for desk drawers. They are perfect in my office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Elfa! I have had some of my Elfa for over 30 years. I just keep adding to it. The basic design change with time, but you can add all the new features because the sizes stay consistent and compatable. I have used my Elfa in my under the stairwell storage, garage for tools, in my closets and purchased Elfa systems for my daughter for newborns clothes, diapers and need to have at hand accessories. I have my entire art studio fitted with Elfa.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Modest duty These are pretty nice, but modest duty. Good for home office or bedroom or light use kitchen. Not appropriate for commercial office, vigorous use kitchen, certainly not for garage. Casters not sutable to bump over transforms. If you wheel them around all the time, the corner right angle solid pieces holding the verticals will fatigue crack - they are die cast, not forged or steel cast. But, good enough for lighter duty. After this you need to go to wire frame systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase I bought this elfa shelf to put in a coat closet in order to convert it to a pantry; our new kitchen didn't have enough cabinet space. This is perfect. I put it together in about 10 minutes with just the soft handle of a hammer. It's well made and sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've now made 4 different Elfa drawer units for my home! (This was my first) I love them! I love the way the drawers glide, I love having casters to make it easy to clean under/behind the cart. I love the fact that they're fairly light, yet feel sturdy. After making my first one, I started looking for places to use another! They're fairly easy to assemble too. I don't have a rubber mallet, but I used a thick rag to cushion my hammer and it did fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 25 years and going strong I've used these elfa frames and drawers in 6 different houses in the past 25 years, taking them apart for moving and reconfiguring for different needs. The 30" are great for desks or worktables. I have some of the cabinet depth for my kitchen. So much better than digging in the back of shelves! I've cut them down to custom fit them to the space I had. I was very happy to discover recently that I can order the cross pieces separately from the runner frames. When you've taken them apart and reassembled them as many times as I have, they do get a little beat up. They may seem a bit expensive, but I have a hard time thinking of something else I have that's been as useful and hard-working as these. They are worth the investment! Btw, I usually wait for them to go on sale in January.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this i bought this as a replace for a dresser that would fit in my closet. i absolutely love it. not too difficult to put together,and is completely stable. my clothing fits perfectly in it. i ordered the 22 inch wide one with the mesh drawers at 57inch height. that gave me around 11 drawers (using the customize program to fit my needs) and the mesh allows my clothes to breathe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wonderful! I purchased one of these units for my sewing room. It worked so well, I purchased a second. The only downfall, if you choose to use the insert to the drawers, the corresponding lids will not fit. Minor engineering design flaw, hopefully changed in the future. I'd purchase these units again. They're great for a variety of uses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a Lego cart and pantry cart I purchased two of these for storing our growing Lego collection and one for a space in the pantry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for under short hanging clothes! This works perfectly if you want to organize your space simply under shirts. I use it for denim and boots. Buy the topper and you have a place to lay out tomorrow's outfit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frame Purchased online the 10 size frame. Fortunately we had seen it at the store and a very helpful client told us all the ins and outs of assembly and what additional items needed to be ordered - ei feet, drawer stops etc. It all went together very easily with a rubber mallet. Good construction, so much better than plastic. It's a keeper.

As always, I love the amazing amount of storage in the elfa pieces. Can't imagine any other way to have such a well-organized craft area.

Community Q&A

Strong enough to be printer cart?

I want to put casters on this drawer unit and one of the tops...I'm just wondering if it is strong enough to hold the printer/scanner machine, plus 4 drawers full of office supplies. I don't see a weight limit in the product details.
Asked by: MickiB311
Yes! That's how I'm using mine. I added casters and a melamine top.
Answered by: Bozzy

What is the total height?

If I get the 41" high drawer frame, plus feet and a melamine top, then what would the total height be?
Asked by: PirateMom
They add about 4" - appx 3.5" for casters and appx 1/2" for the top.

Can these units be stacked to create taller cabinets?

Asked by: DesignCurious
Yes. The bottom crossbars have the same metal going up into the rails as going down as feet. You can stack two units together by removing one set of top crossbars and replacing them with the bottom crossbar of the other set so that they lock together. Adding a 4-rail unit to a 7-rail unit or something along those lines is fine but I don't recommend going too high because then it will be top-heavy and a little tipsy.

Did Elfa used to have a 5 runner drawer?

I have one at home that holds 1 - 1 runner drawer and 2 - 2 runner drawers. (total of 5 runners). I'm positive it's Elfa, and I need another that size, but I can't find it on line. Did they discontinue this size?
Asked by: MoFarina
I don't remember if there used to be a 5-runner available (I've had mine for 25 yrs), but it's easy to cut down the frame with a hacksaw. I've done it several times.

How much weight can a drawer hold?

We plan to put these into a deep cabinet to hold mixing bowls, tupperware, colanders etc. How much weight can one drawer hold? (Thinking of my glass mixing bowls and worrying they'll really weigh the drawers down.)
Asked by: stephaniechicago
I use three runner drawers packed full of denim and I have stored books in there with no problems. The only drawer that ever bent was when my friend's 7 year old stood on it while it was upside down during moving.

Am I able to secure this to a wall??

I plan on putting 2 side by side in a pantry but do not want them to move around. Thanks.

If you use the plastic feet and the frame clips, they shouldn't move at all when they're loaded up.

Can the Elfa Drawer Frames be cut to a custom size?

I realize this would mean that the bottom runner could not be used for a drawer, but I was wondering if Container Store would cut the frame for you by an inch or so.
Asked by: plnrchk
Unfortunately, we cannot custom cut the frames.

To stack two frames do I knock out the top rungs. They are tight. I will use a piece of wood so as not to bend anything.

Asked by: Jasager
Yes, you need to knock out either the top or the bottom cross pieces in order to stack the frames. A rubber mallet works best, but if you don't have one, use a block of wood to protect the finish, and whack it with a hammer. As long as you hit it as close as you can to where the two pieces connect, you shouldn't have a problem with anything getting bent. I've disassembled and reassembled mine several times. So many times, in fact, that mine come apart without a hammer! Which is kind of a pain when you want to move it around fully loaded, but they don't fall apart other than that.
