White Melamine Tops is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tops slightly too small I love Elfa - and was excited to solve an organinzing dilemma for my mom with four sets of elfa drawer frames side-by-side, each topped with a white melamine top. The tops fit fine if you have one unit - but if you put them side by side and attach the tops so as to not have a space between the units - they don't line-up. I've attached a photo so you can see how far off they are by the third unit. Overall the units look great, and the melamine tops are very sturdy and attach well with the strips - we solved our problem by putting the corner safety pad on the end, so the 'short' top was not noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and fits well This top fits the basket unit perfectly. It is attached with an adhesive tape. I'm not sure how effective the hold will be. It does make the unit more useable by giving a solid top on which other items can be stored. I use them in my sewing studio for storing my serger when it's not in use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HATE the new style top! I would give everything else a 5 star rating. But these tops I wouldn't even give 1 star if that were possible. I have some Elfa units that I have had for several years and love them. I just bought 3 more to add to the ones I have and the tops no longer fit down over the frame. Now you have to use tape to adhere them to the frame. WHY did you change them? The old tops could be lifted off at any time but were secure when on the frame. I have a large walk in pantry ready to finish and had planned to outfit it with the elfa units. Not now. Will find another option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful finishing touch We've had Elfa for years and love it. When I got some new drawer sets, I bought the melamine tops and I love them. They finish the drawers so contents in the top drawer are hidden away and the add additional room for extra storage, they are durable once you put them on the unit but be careful not to drop them before that - they are more fragile than they look and edges and corners can be vulnerable to chipping or bending, showing the pressed board underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution I love my elfa cart but I needed to change the way I was using it. I had mine set up for files so to change it I purchased 2 drawers and the melamine top. The top gave me the extra tabletop space I needed. And, by adding 2 more drawers I was able to adapt the cart to fit my current needs. Not only is it perfect, it is really nice looking. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wrapping paper organizer The melamine top was the perfect finishing touch to my wrapping paper organizer. I had no plans of buying a table top and was going to leave the drawer open but once I put the casters on, the drawers became a great quick card writing table that could roll anywere for wrapping writing or stacking gifts for prep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Elfa I need to repurpose a drawer unit and needed a top for its new use. The drawer unit has been used for years and it's great to still be able to add to it. I have used Elfa products for a pantry and for an office space. It has served me well and the quality assures me I will be using it for many more years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from White Melamine Top Still deciding if I will use the white top or the butcher block. The white top will be great in the laundry room - or butcher block if I keep this in the kitchen. . But either way I would recommend. Love Elfa products. Good quality. Easy to assemble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa drawer frames and tops I purchased 2 sets of the white 8 drawer frames and the white tops to go with them and they are excellent! I love the tight mesh of the drawers because it's a lot more versatile than the wire drawers I've purchased at other stores. I also got the tags so I can label the drawers and it works great. The only issue I have is that you have to be very careful placing the top on the double sided tape. It's almost impossible to reposition if you miss and don't get it set straight the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Shelving is a Life Saver I replaced my pantry closet shelving, that drove me insane, with a new Elfa unit. What a life saver! It was easy to assemble, the drawers glide easily in and out, and it is easy to store the pantry items I need. I highly recommend this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Drawer Frames I first bought these units as part of a closet makeover, then I moved and bought more to continue using as regular dressers. I'm downsizing and simplifying with functional and practical furnishings. I don't need or want fancy, expensive furniture and the Elfa Drawer Frames are durable, configurable, and space-saving. I use them as dressers and as a nightstand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from All those pieces It drives me crazy to buy something like this and have to put the frame together. Really, at these prices, why can't it come put together. The unit is still sitting in my closet waiting for assembly. Would love to be using it soon!. Maybe I can recommend after I get it assembled. Looked great in the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good old Elfa, still around. Bought my first units 20 years ago, and recently came across another at a yard sale, but needed a new top , as old top was wrecked. I ordered one from the website, and a new top was quickly delivered for much less shipping than it would have cost to drive to the store, 70 miles away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa mesh drawers We downsized 3 years and ever since moving to our smaller house, the closet in my quilting room/office has been a mess. Disorganized, cluttered, over crowded in some spots and not maximizing space in other closet sections. Our challenge was to take a small closet and divide it: 1/2 for work, and 1/2 for play (quilting and sewing). But actually it was quite easy with ELFA. Easy to install, a joy to look at and use. I feel so much better having a place for my stuff that is so accessible and organized. I love it! ELFA thought of everything from easy instructions of how to assemble the units to having the drawers pull out incredibly smoothly to easily attaching the drawer stops. Shelves on the work side were easy to install,and I can see exactly what I need at a glance.Thank you Container Store!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adheres Very Tightly - Which Is Both Good and Bad I put the stickers on the tops of the frame, and carefully laid the melamine top on them. I then realized that the top was slightly awry, and tried to lift the lid to readjust it, but I could not budge it - it is clearly attached for all eternity. This is good in that I now absolutely trust that the top will always stay put, but I'd like to suggest that the Container Store consider using a type of adhesive that allows readjustments for a few minutes before bonding permanently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximize Your Space I totally love Elfa units. I am SO glad that these tops are offered. I don't like the look of having an open drawer on top of my unit, and I also feel it's a waste of valuable space. These are easy to put on, durable, and look great. You can choose to stack more storage, to leave it empty for a nice clean look on top of your unit(s), or you can choose to put more decorative items on them. I have had my oldest unit for about 4 years, it's been moved many times and it still looks great.

Community Q&A

I want to connect several drawer units. Is it possible to buy a larger white melamine top to cover all of them?

Asked by: playroomplanner
I was tempted to do the same with two smaller ones but then purchased one larger one, but you are limited by the sizing of the Elfa products. I suppose you could make your own.

are the tops waterproof?

can i use these in the laundry room where there will be wet clothes laid on top, soap, maybe spills, etc? will they warp? also are they textured or smooth?
Asked by: kissthedog
These tops are smooth, but they are not waterproof and the melamine coating could warp if wet for long periods of time.

Use of the top means you can't disassemble later?

I have a 15-year old drawer unit that I want to send to college and add a top as a bedside table/storage unit. The reviews describe the adhesive bond as permanent, meaning at the end of the year, we are not going to be able to break down the frame again for transport?
Asked by: 1997
You will need to take a flathead screwdriver to pry the top loose from the frame. You may need to have an additional set of hands to help steady and pull the top free from the framework. If you continue to encounter issues, please contact our Customer Solutions department.

Can these tops sit on top of solid shelf brackets?

I want to hang some 18" hanging mesh drawers and top them off with 2 of these shelves.
Asked by: Mya417
We do not recommend placing our White Melamine Tops on elfa Solid Shelf Brackets – there is no way to secure them. We would recommend our 20” deep White Melamine Shelves for your solution.
