Available only at The Container Store, our Elfa Mesh Drawers fit perfectly into the appropriate size Elfa Drawer Frame to create an Elfa Mesh Drawer Unit. The Medium width can also be use in an Elfa Décor Drawer Frame. The tight mesh material and closed corners of these drawers prevent smaller items from falling though without the use of Drawer Liners. Use them to store almost anything: clothing, linens, office supplies, kitchen utensils, packaged foods or toys.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from paper crafters It's important that paper crafters know: the mesh drawers that are called "Narrow" are only 12 inches at the most extreme edges - in other words, do NOT expect your 12 x 12 papers to fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa The Container Store sent me an email to review a number of different Elfa items: 2-runner mesh white drawers, melamine white tops, in and out stops, and drawer back stop pins. To save time, I am writing only one review to cover the whole. Additionally, I have bought several sets of casters, clear bottoms for the legs, and frames. I have spent over $1,300.00 during the past half month to assemble 9 totally new different units, including two that I stacked a 4 rail unit on top of a 7 rail unit. In other words, I actually have bought 11 different sets. I already have had 8 units that have lasted decades. I have bought all of this during The Container Store's 25% sale. In my opinion, Elfa is expensive, even when it is on sale. However, it is practical, attractive, can be adjustable, and as importantly, it is durable. From experience, I know it will last for decades. I am using them in 5 closets, 1 bedroom, a utility room and 1 bathroom. I recommend the products to everyone. You will be happy with your purchases for generations to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now my closet is as organized as my kitchen I've had a grey tall (five) drawer set in my kitchen as a rolling island for at least 10 years. A new apartment caused some alterations in the closet and now I have a white drawer set. The bottom most deep drawer is now a laundry basket and the upper drawers serve as dresser drawers both 3 deep and 2 shallow. They glide in and out effortlessly and quietly. Hooray!

Had to take back and get the 16 7/8. Fit but wasted some space. Wish you would rethink the size for standard size vanities. Lovely product, however!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best organizer for my watch collection All of my closets are done by the Container Store, and the organization of these Elfa shelves is endless. I took one of the narrow shelves to display my coveted watch collection, when before, they were all in separate boxes all over the place taking up way too much room. I can’t say enough about ALL of the Elfa products, which now are installed in my master closet and I completely transformed my 2nd bedroom into one ginormous closet, which is 100% The Container Store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa drawers I visited The Container Store in hopes to find specific sized bins for a new home that we are building. The cabinets in the laundry room and pantry are quite deep, which I quickly realized would become a deep, dark, cavernous hole for EVERYTHING to get pushed back into never to be seen again. As I entered the store, I was overwhelmed not knowing where to begin in planning these two areas. Dennis Zahn was able to assess what my needs were and directed me to a section in the store for bin sizes that would meet my needs. I purchased a couple of the Elfa mesh bins with easy gliders and took them to our new home to complete planning these areas. I went back to the store that night with my long list of a wish list. In no time I ran into David, who was a blast to work with. He asked appropriate questions to help us be sure we were on the right track and same page. As he got a better understanding of my plan, he and a few other staff went into high gear pulling all the bins, gliders, dividers, and tags for me! This really is a specialty store that seeks to meet the customer’s needs. I like that they were not working on commission or pushing sales. I can hardly wait to put my plan into action. I will share pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Under-the-sink solution We have a narrow sink cabinet. With the garbage disposal in the center, it was hard to reach cleaning items in the cabinet. I bought this Elfa basket and pull-out drawer unit. It was very easy to install, and makes those cleaning supplies easily accessible. I would recommend eveyone have one of these under the sink or in any other cabinet (they come in different widths and heights) where a pull-out drawer would make the contents more accessible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy installation, great organization I installed these in my pantry this weekend, I did two of the narrow ones on each shelf so I could pull them out more easily. They look great! I lost a little bit of storage capacity from the space around the baskets, and because the sides flare out, so the bottoms are a little smaller, but it's worth it to be able to access everything at the back more easily. My number one installation tip is to make a template so you can drill in the same place every time and easily line up where the basket goes compared to the glide on the bottom. That part of the process was super quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch We have several ELFA units in our home. We had 3 units with the solid drawers and needed to replace them with the mesh drawers for a little more stability. They are now part of an office set-up and will hold much heavier items. Since we purchased lids for the solid drawers, they have now become stackable storage units for our basement. Win, win situation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Organized I highly recommend the Elfa mesh drawers to anyone who has a dark hidey-holes where they store seldom used items that are hard to get to. So far I have installed 9 drawers and plan to install 10 more in the bottoms of lower cabinets. The drawers are easy to install and pull out easily. I can easily find what I need without crawling around on the floor and into a dark cabinet. Big thank you to Elfa for their wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from elfa platinum drawers = smooth, classy storage You can't beat elfa products for home storage. Easy assembly, sturdy yet lightweight, and elfa cares about the little things that other storage unit makers miss; the drawer movement is smooth and noiseless every time, and the platinum mesh is just the right mix of privacy and visibility for whatever you're storing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mesh drawers are fantastic! I purchased 3 frames and the drawer sizes I needed as a part of outfitting my sewing studio. They are perfect for holding quilting fabric and notions. Very sturdy and choice of drawer sizes to meet your specific needs. The mesh is small enough that nothing falls through, but allows air circulation so fabric doesn’t get smelly from being in bins. They glide like butter and assembly is not difficult. Highly recommend!

This set-up has turned out the very best!

Community Q&A

Are the dimensions on Medium accurate?

Your Medium elfa Mesh Drawers appear to be wider than they are deep. Yet the website says they measure 16.825" (wide) x 20.75" (deep). The website also says they fit in the elfa decor Drawer Frame, which is 24" (wide) x17.5" (deep). Maybe the width and depth of the drawers are accidentally reversed?
Asked by: Juhbuytghy
Yes, they are accurate.

Can wheels be added to 3-runner?

I want to make a short rolling laundry basket. Can wheels be added to the wide mesh 3-runner drawer?
Asked by: kjwa
Casters can be added to the frame of any of the frames. Back in the late 1980s or early 1990s, I created a 7 runner frame with three baskets to separate my whites, dark colors, and light colors as separate laundry baskets. Each day, I toss the particular color in the appropriate basket so that I do not have to separate them as some other time, It has worked perfectly and made laundry less of a chore.

How wide is the narrow-sized drawer at the bottom?

It looks like the drawers taper somewhat from top to bottom and the bottom of the drawer is more narrow than the top. Would I be able able to lay a 12x12 piece of paper flat on the bottom of the narrow drawer?
Asked by: skyros
Nope. Something like 10.25x10.25 yes, but 12x12, no.

What are the dimensions of the bottoms of the wide drawers? 1 runner, 2 runner, and 3 runner?

Do all of the drawers of the wide size share the same bottom dimensions? This info should really be included in the listing because the drawers are tapered and it is not possible to tell whether particular items would fit.

Information should be available on line and is available on the packaging.

How can I make the Elfa drawers close more quietly?

When the Elfa drawers get pushed back into place, they really slam against the back. Is there any way to slow the shelves down or dampen the noise?
Asked by: AlamedaDad
If necessary, I line my drawers with Con-Tact Brand Grip Liner. If the drawer contents rattle, I line some of the contents, such as glass baking dishes or pots and pans, with the Grip Liner.

Mesh Drawers vs. Wire Drawers with Liners

I'm trying to choose between the Mesh Drawer and the Wire Drawer with Liner. Aside from the look, is there any advice you can give for picking one over the other? It's for a bedroom closet, so they will hold everything from jewelry and intimates, to socks and sweaters.
Asked by: PirateMom
I like the mesh drawers better than the wire drawer. "Stuff" won't fall through or get caught on the wires. I think the mesh would be sturdier.
