Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice but pricey I like that these shelves are attractive and easy to install, and they're pretty light so it makes it even easier to install them yourself. I found that the left side of the shelf was a bit harder to snap into place than the right side, but I'm not sure if that's really the case or just because I'm a righty. If I could change one thing about these shelves it would be their price point. I wish they were more affordable, as doing a whole unit with them gets pricey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Times have changed This is my second full wall system and I was disappointed to find that the shelves have become slightly cheap. The bracket system on the side is now made of plastic and doesn't snap into the brackets easily or with the satisfactory snap like the old ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, easy to install, and looks great It took me less than an hour to install the walnut decor shelves, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. They look great! I worried at first about the cost, but I appreciate that these are lighter and easier to work with than the melamine shelves. And if you plan to move around a lot, investing in a lighter shelving and storage options makes sense!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moving on up! I replaced my microwave cart & moved the microwave up to my new Elfa shelving on the wall. I have a small kitchen with very little counter space & very few cabinets so I purchased these shelves for my cookbooks, canisters, & microwave. I couldn't be happier with it. I have pets & I used to have to move the microwave cart every time I sweep my floor but not anymore! I think I have an Elfa addiction!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice except mounting scheme These shelves are very well fabricated and in most respects are very nice. However the mounting scheme is the worst in any Elfa product. The latching scheme consists of about eight tiny plastic thin fitting tabs. Any jar to the shelving result in these tabs lifting off the mounting brackets. It all comes tumbling down. Having had these expensive shelves for two years I have finally decided to put on a J channel extrusion to redesign the mounting scheme. I am also making a holddown scheme as this is a major source of the problem. This is tedious and a pain but I am not throwing out $360 worth of shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shelving! I bought a custom designed shelf and drawer unit using this line. They are simply beautiful. The shelves are made of fine hardwood with a tasteful finish and the drawers glide smoothly. If you're wanting a smart look yet practical storage unit, you will love these. By the way, it was pleasure to work with the Container Store. Their designers helped me achieve the best design for my space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shelving System I used the freestanding Elfa system to build an entertainment center, bookcase, and printer storage. To cut costs, I used the regular shelves for the bulk of the project. I'd love to swap them out for these decor shelves over time, though, because the decor shelves are just so much nicer looking overall. I assembled the entire system in less than an hour by myself. I especially like the 83" brackets. I live in a small space with high ceilings, so utilizing vertical space is a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walnut and Platinum... Today's contemporary look. The Decor Shelf is essential to my Elfa system. Its wooden appeal and walnut color bring elegance and style to my dresser unit. Its large size creates a wide and deep space to hold more than you think it can. Once set properly on the shelf bracket, it holds a good deal of weight too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional I love my Elfa wall shelving! I was finally able to unpack all of my books (with room to spare for future growth). I had it installed due to the length (9') and with the sale price. The installer was quick (couple of hours) and cleaned up after himself. The only negative is I would recommend a 12" shelf max above a desk rather than the 16" (for head clearance). I would also love to see some kind of lighting system designed to go with this. I jerry rigged an LED tape light around the back of the pin board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Beverage Center We made a beverage center in our formal dining room that we wouldn't use if it wasn't for Elfa. We have plans to use the same material on the other wall which is 16' We had Elfa install and it took no time at all and LOOKS GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Functional and Space Saving I recently purchased the decor shelves and desktop to build a desk set up in my home office. I was able to reuse some leftover standards and shelf brackets from another project and integrate the desk shelves with some existing bookshelves and a filing cabinet. The end result was spectacular! I have so much room to store office things. I love the versatility of Elfa and the ease to assemble something so polished looking,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Saves Son's College Apartment We used the Elfa shelf solution in our son's college apartment to create bookshelves above his teeny tiny desk. What a difference it made! The installation was easy and the finished result looks great. I highly recommend elfa!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Decor Shelving My husband and I possess a lot of books, magazines, journals, and maps. At our last home, we had bookcases built, but when we moved, we couldn't take the shelves with us. Having used Elfa in my laundry and a pool closet, I knew I didn't want the wire mesh shelves, so I kept waiting and waiting. Voila! Elfa came out with the Decor shelves, and that is perfect for transforming a room into an office! We purchased the 16" w x 17"d x 1.25"h shelving. Our feature wall has 82"w x 97"h of working space. My husband desperately needed filing storage to accommodate legal size file folders and accordion folders, so I bought three 7-tier Drawer systems, put them on casters, turned them sideways, and built the bookcases around the filing systems. The depth of the shelves and the sideways depth of the filing drawers compliment one another perfectly! I bought 12 shelves, but after building the shelving from the bottom up, I should have purchased 15 shelves. (I will be adding another row!) I have the space I thought I might have at the far right, and I will be putting two stacked Narrow Cabinet Bath Drawers there. The customer service was excellent! Mary Beth and her team worked really hard to work with such an odd space. This is my fourth Elfa shelving system, and I will continue to purchase The Container Store products because of their design ingenuity and superior customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best shelves When I shopped for these shelves, I knew I liked them. Once they were installed, I loved them. They are simple, unobtrusive and very well-made. And easy to adjust, move, reconfigure. I couldn't be happier. The staff at the store were cheerful and very knowledgeable, and the installer was as well. Overall, a great purchase.

Can this shelf be placed on a slider to pull out and push back in? If so, what else do I need to purchase?

Where are the 24" shelves?

I purchased an elfa system a few years back, and have 24" wide shelves. I want to expand it by adding on shelves, but I can't find them on the website. Have they been phased out? :( What options do I have?
Asked by: EmilyPT
On Elfa's website FAQs, I see: Are the components of my Classic storage that I bought 10 years ago compatible with the ones you offer today? And the answer is: Absolutely – this is part of the elfa concept; you can always trust previous elfa components to fit perfectly with newer collections and products. The decision to not offer 24" shelves runs counter to the elfa concept, and is frustrating to those who have made a sizable investent over the years in this system.

Are the Elfa Sand and Elfa birch colors close the same color?

I want to use the birch decor shelves on one wall of a walk in closet and the sand on another so they won't be touching, do they look close enough?
Asked by: sportyblue
Our Birch elfa décor Shelves are actual wood veneer while our elfa Sand Melamine Solid Shelves are a man-made plastic laminate over MDF. The finishes are not the same, but they do coordinate. When used on separate walls of the same space, the compatibility of the two finishes is simply a matter of personal preference and taste. For further assistance, please contact us at 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246).

What are the wood shelves finished with and what is the honeycomb made from? Are these no VOC products? Does Elfa have environmental certifications?

I would like to find out whether there is an off-gassing from Elfa products. Additionally, how green is the production process? Thank you
Asked by: BrooklynArchitect
elfa décor shelves are made with a solid Birch frame with a honeycomb interior. The honeycomb is made from a corrugated material. They have a birch veneer on top and bottom that is stained with a water based lacquer.

Can the 4' Decor shelf be installed across three ventilated shelf brackets?

In my design, I have two 2' wide sections side by side, so there are three hanging standards with 2' spacing between them. I have a 4' closet rod supported by three ventilated shelf brackets with closet rod holders. Can the 4' Decor shelf be installed over this rod, or do I have to get two 2' shelves?

We recommend having two 2' decor shelves side by side.
