Rated 5 out of 5 by The Top Completes The Look The top looks great on my set of mesh drawers! I placed it in my closest creating more space in my room. It's a great product. December 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely the Best! I have now purchased 3 Elfa storage units for my closet, two wider and this narrower one. I have a bedroom with very little wall space for dressers, so these act as dressers within my closet. Easy to put together and so functional. This smaller one houses make-up, and bathroom extras as it is narrower. I highly recommend. February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Use in any room I use these tops on all my elfa drawer units. They are great in the garage, utility room, closets, or anywhere you need vertical storage solutions. They are a melamine that can be cleaned and wiped down. The easiest installation ever, no screws or bolts and so useful. January 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. February 13, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elfa cool storage! I was in need for some quick easy storage and this fit the bill. This product went together easily and has ample storage and fits into my small walk-in closet. Great product, a little pricey! June 30, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great! Easy to put together, fits perfectly in the space, and seems durable. April 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Great product, I would recommend this to everyone. Great for storage and convenience. March 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by organization got it for my daughter-in-law for under the kitchen now she has 3 places to store items in a small kitchen February 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best Very easy to put together and improved my laundry closet 100%. Previously the closet was a mess because of the small space, but this system made the closet look larger, organized and clean. THE BEST January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 8, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. September 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elfa components As with all Elfa products, I am delighted to be able order components for my Elfa pieces, some of which were purchased almost 30 years and three moves ago. Ordering is simple, service is prompt, and above all, the products are USEFUL. August 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great way to top your Elfa units The white melamine tops were the perfect way to finish off the drawer units I bought for my office space. I like the clean look of the white and you don't get more durable than melamine. April 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use and durable. A little heavy, but should be fine. April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Top I purchased an Elfa melamine top for my new cart. It certainly makes my cart more versatile. Thanks Elfa! March 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Completes the Frame This top completes the frame, sturdy and allows for storage on top of unit. Wipes clean with damp cloth. Easily placed with double sided tape provided. February 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elfa Shelves Just the Best! My whole office is Elfa - I feel just too organized and love it. We moved and I took most of the system with me. How great is that! Definitely worth the money! February 22, 2013

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.
