$13.00/ea. - $16.00/ea.

Available only at The Container Store, our Elfa Solid Drawers fit perfectly into our medium Elfa Drawer Frame and can also be used in an Elfa Décor Drawer Frame. The translucent plastic construction and optional lid's transparent quality provide enough visibility to identify the contents while keeping them enclosed. When using a optional lid, the individual drawers can be stacked, which allows for a quick seasonal rotation of your wardrobe. Use them to store almost anything: clothing, linens, office supplies, kitchen utensils, packaged foods or toys. If the Solid Drawers are used in an independent Elfa Drawer Frame, add Solid Drawer In & Out Stops (sold separately) to keep them securely in the runners.

  • Optional lid can be used when Solid Drawer is in Drawer Frame
  • Constructed of super-strong polypropylene
  • Compatible with medium Elfa Drawer Frames or Décor Drawer Frames
  • Elfa Custom Drawer Planner

Translucent Medium Solid Drawers is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Drawers don't stay in I bought these for my children's toys. Wow what a mistake they never stay in the rails they are always falling causing a mess and frustration for the kids. I have the mesh ones and love them. Wish i had bought those but i thought the plastic ones would be a better choice for the kids stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful. I've had mesh elfa storage since 2008 and it's fabulous. I bought a new medium piece for my kitchen and I went with the plastic because I'm afraid of scratching my expensive cookware. The drawers simply do not fit - even drawers with no weight added (having read the other reviews), they don't fit. It's like they are just too small to stay in the drawer and it makes my kitchen look like a mess. You have to align it exactly in the middle which doesn't sound like too much work, but it is actually pretty annoying to do every time you use a drawer; a 1/8" left and the right side drops down, a 1/8" right and the left side drops down. It should not be able to move that much on either side. From the other reviews and responses I gather I have to buy the drawer stays, which is absolutely ridiculous. It seems to be a design flaw, now I have go back to the store and buy these pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Space Saver! I bought 4 of these smoke medium solid drawers. I did not use the shelf system with mine as many people have reviewed. I installed mine in drawer frames onto elfa standards mounted directly into the drywall. I have construction items in one, christmas in another, and miscellaneous items in the other two. Two of them are heavy and are holding up just fine. No bowing, no cracking, etc. I would highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sweaters yes - weighty items no As others have expressed, anything with weight pulls the sides in as the bottom droops, then the drawer falls out of the rails. When I asked the "how much weight are these items rated for question" I got only, use drawer in/out stops. Those don't stop the drawers from sagging and drooping. so if you are only storing clothes/sweaters etc for seasonal changeover great, otherwise no.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bow when anything with weight stored & fall off In theory, these bins should be awesome. They are cheaper than the mesh drawers. They come with lids if you want to easily change them out and store them away. However, in practice, they are far from it. Like another reviewer, I used a set for my son's legos. I bought the additional Solid Drawer In & Out Stops that are sold separately as was added as a suggestion by the Container Store to several other bad reviews. But the drawers still fell off the runners. The problem comes when you store things in there that have any weight to them. The drawers bow toward the middle, pulling the sides in with it, and they are no longer wide enough to stay on the runners (see picture). The Solid Drawer In & Out Stops don't help with this since you can only place them in the back so the drawers function (i.e. pull them out and use like a drawer). You'd likely need them in the front or middle to circumvent the problem, but then you can't pull them out. And, I don't think these cheap plastic things will hold up to the weight anyway. I bought several with lids for my craft center as well, that I have yet to set up, but based on the experience with the legos storage, they are ALL going back. I'll replace with the more expensive mesh drawers, which have ALWAYS worked well for me and my storage needs. I guess you get what you pay for :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These drawers don't stay on the rails I purchased Elfa Translucent Drawers and Drawer Frame to hold my art materials. Though the system is one of the best-looking I've seen, the drawers fall out as soon as you begin to pull them forward. I would not recommend purchasing these plastic drawers. It was an expensive investment for frustration.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spend a little more for the mesh I have used these in my closet for a couple of years and they have been frustrating from the start. They fall out of the rails very easily. I do tend to cram my drawers full so maybe that is the issue? Anyway, spend a little bit more for the mesh drawers and you will love this system!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These plastic drawers DO NOT stay in the rails. Let me preface this by saying I already own several Elfa drawer systems that use the metal baskets. Those are great. These plastic drawers are one of the worst products I have used, ever. They literally cease to function as a drawer on their own after you add a few small items to it. We wanted to try these plastic ones since they seemed good in store, but after taking them home and adding just a few things to the baskets, they now fall out of the rails every time we open them. The single-level ones are the worst, but the 2-level ones are also really bad for it. I read in another review that the in & out drawer stops keep the buckets attached, but IF YOU NEED SOMETHING TO MAKE THE DRAWER WORK, SELL THAT WITH THE DRAWER ITSELF. Part of the reason we got the plastic drawers was BECAUSE we wanted to pull the plastic bins out and use them on their own at times. Putting the in & out stops in negates our ability to do that. Honestly, stick with the mesh drawers and avoid these plastic ones at all costs unless you just want to put them on a shelf or under a bed somewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love all things Elfa . . .except these drawers When I saw the solid drawers, I was so excited because there were exactly what I needed and I would still be thrilled it if they came in the other sizes (narrow, etc.) for use in the standing drawer frames. Unfortunately, as other reviewers have noted, these drawers don't stay put in the basic hanging Elfa drawer frame. I particularly have problems with the 2-runner drawers. Half full, they are okay, but once full, they fall off the drawer frame every time I move them. And they are then difficult to get back on the frame without removing the contents. I could decrease the load, but then I need another drawer or two. And really, I'm storing PJs here, not hand tools or boxes of nails. It is incredibly annoying and so I can't go above three stars. If the long sides had a bit more lip on them or could somehow be attached to the frame, that would go a long way to solving the problem. In the meantime, I plan on purchasing the decor frames at some point, and my hope is that these drawers will get along better with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too flexable Because of flexability the drawers come off of the tracks easily. I liked the idea of having a drawer that could be switched to storage with lid for off season use but I will stick to metal mesh in the future
Date published: 2016-03-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not work well with drawer frames This is a great option for light items. I used this system as drawers for my daughters (4 systems in all). A drawer of leggings, another with shirts and another with pajamas, leos etc was too much weight for each of them and the middle kept bowing inward and making the drawer fall out of the track. If it's less than half full, they stayed in just fine. Design flaw is that it will not hold clothes like pictured. Mesh ones can hold much more weight for clothes, fabric, craft supplies and such. Changing my craft ones out to mesh and using these as normal totes (16 in all) as that is all they are good for for us. Gave the four kids normal wooden drawers instead. They may work better with the sideways (decor) wall system, not for the elfa drawer frames.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Storage I used these drawers in a drawer frame to store fabric - the drawers are sturdy, however if the contents of the drawer are too heavy it slips out of the tracks when pulled out - very annoying! I fortunately am using this for storage - so am not pulling the drawers out on a regular basis - and I did find that if the lid is on the drawer, it keeps it from slipping out the track. I should also point out that getting to the 'too heavy' point was with the drawer less than half full. Overall I like the concept of these drawers with lids for STORAGE use - but I would be hesitant to recommend them for everyday use in a closet (on a drawer frame) or a desk - as I do think they'd slip off their tracks fairly easily once clothing or books were added.

Community Q&A

If I use the metal drawer frames, do the solid drawers need to be completely removed from the frame to take off the solid lid?

Or can the lid just be slid back to access the contents when the solid drawer extends out from the frame (not removing the lid or solid drawer)?
Asked by: caha
You don't need to remove the whole drawer to get the lid off. The top of the drawer sits above the frame, and so the lid does as well. The lid can be attached to the drawer, but can also just lay on top. You do still have to move the lid to access the contents, but that is an easy lift/slide once the drawer is out.

weight capability

I am using a 2 runner medium size one and I don't believe I am putting a large amount of weight in it, yet, it is falling off the railings. What is the weight capability/Max that these drawers are supped to hold?

What is the inside measurement of these?

I know the measurements state that the overall size is 16 7/8" x 21" x 7 3/8" - but I'm trying to gauge what the actual inside measurements are. Thank you!
Asked by: TheMFamily
The interior base measures 13-7/8" by 17-7/8" by 6-11/16" high (to the inside lip on which the lid rests).

Can these be used on regular elfa wall drawer frames?

It seems like I keep reading that all the drawers can be used with the "decor" frames, but nothing about he regular elfa frames. I need the deepest drawer for a garage installation, but don't need decor (decor doesn't have "platinum" color anyway). Any deeper drawer options available for the regular elfa wall drawer frames?
Asked by: remcentre
The deepest elfa drawer (3-Runner, 11-1/4") is compatible with the elfa decor drawer frame only. The metal drawer frame has only one drawer that is compatible with it and it is 7-1/4" deep (2-Runner). It can be found at the link below.
