I have purchased lots of Elfa over the years but this was the first free standing design that I have done. It was a 120" wall for my office space. I needed one person to help me with the first section but after that, I could easily put together the remaining sections by myself. It looks great, is sturdy and I love the I can reconfigure easily - I would highly recommend it!

This is my 3rd set of freestanding solutions. The 83" Uprights are very heavy, but that's good because you know it's strong!

Â by djtalley What Freestanding ELFA can do for YOU
My husband and I like home renovation projects, and to that end bought a 1930's, 1,000 square foot frame house to RENO and Enlarge to meet our family's needs.
What does a home of this age NOT have? CLOSETS! After a few years of making due with antique wardrobes we searched for a new and better option.
ELFA to the rescue!
As we added on, moved walls and created space in our old/new house, Freestanding ELFA was at our side, shifting from room to room and reconfiguring as our needs dictated. We have nearly finished our final projects and our ELFA systems have spread to the laundry room, master closet, sewing/craft room, and inside the doors as well. We have also gifted ELFA fixed wall systems to the closets in our daughter's home!
Thanks for engineering a product that is practical, well made, and looks great too.

I used elfa track in closets, but needed a sturdy temporary shelf unit to start seeds for my garden. The elfa freestanding shelf is perfect. Its very stable and the finish is much nicer than other brands. Plus its mobile and I know I will use it for other things and in other places in my home. My husband who is mostly a bargain shopper was dubious given elfa's nominally higher pricing than similar lines, but really loves the elfa freestanding shelves. Can't wait to start cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, and more on my shelves!

A couple of years ago I had an Elfa Shelf System installed on a wall in the basement. My situation has changed, and I wanted to move the system upstairs into a spare bedroom, but I wanted to go with freestanding system (I didnâ¿¿t want to deal with the plaster walls of this old house). I was able to use three 83â¿ freestanding uprights, three 17â¿ freestanding feet and two 2â¿¿ stabilization kits to accomplish my goal--and I was able to do it by myself in about an hour. I was enormously pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cr0ak This is great!
I needed some "extra" countertop space for holding an Excalibur dehydrator. I purchased the free-standing uprights and the other components because I couldn't think of any other way to solve my problem. (And the 3 cu. ft. freezer I was going to order was out of stock on Amazon.)
If I had my "druthers", though, I'd make a size that would fit easily under a countertop. Or countertop height. The 41" height is a tad too tall and is getting in the way of easily opening a window in my laundry room. (I have to stretch to reach around the shelf unit.) I'm considering taking the uprights to a metal-working place to see if they can be cut down to a more workable height.
Other than that, I love the fact that I can easily move it! It was relatively easy to put together (once I viewed the online video of how to attach the cross-braces).

Â by LovesGoldens Another great solution
Bought the freestanding for a laundry room in the basement. The wall is a thin plywood and not exactly flat. Added the wide drawer stack on casters, hooks, and valet rod. I use the valet rod to button shirts before hanging on the closet rod, and the hooks come in handy for air drying machine washed ball caps. I have a melamine shelf for those times I need a working surface, and the drawer stack can be either moved out of the way or as an additional surface. The ventilated shelves work for storing throw rugs, the dog's laundry, anything. The flexibility to rearrange shelving or even move the entire unit(s) makes this well worth its price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ArtistOfWorlds LOVE My elfa free standing
I love my freestanding elfa system, I am an artist and a student which requires me to be organized in a tiny apartment with a lot of art supplies and materials. As soon as i was able to i started saving and invested in my organization and it's changed my life.
This product is sturdy and easy to assemble. In a few short hours i had all my art supplies organized where I can see them and up off the floor where they had been previously, which gave me room to move, think and create!
I love what i have so far and I intend to keep buying parts and expand as i can afford it ^__^
p.s. I assembled it all by myself with very little trouble, and look forward to the ease of moving with this product ^_^

We put these together in a new pantry closet and they are just great. We were able to utilize every inch of space and keep this visible and orangized and easy to reach. On some of the shelves I put some plexi glass sheets so smaller things wouldn't fall through. They are sturdy and I can get a duster underneath when I'm in the mood to deep clean :)

If you are a fan of Elfa Shelving but relocate a lot like I have to do for work OR you want this for an apartment or a dorm function, Freestanding components are for you!
I love that I no longer have to deal with fixing the rather large size holes the drywall anchors require (apartments almost always have metal studs now, so you cannot hang shelving in studs) and that I can take this down and set it up in new configurations to best fit my newest space.
Expensive when compared to the wall hanging system, so I wait to buy components during sale, but otherwise these are a super solution!

Hard to say much about a simple upright other than it provides a rigid and sturdy backbone to freestanding Elfa systems. I've certainly never had one fail on me and continue to be impressed with their design and functionality.

No free walls? No problem. The freestanding elfa system was the solution for me. Walls of glass and electronic equipment didn't leave many options for hanging shelves. We put a line of two-sided freestanding elfa shelves down the middle of the space. Looks very polished and modern. Provided all the storage we need -- and can always add on.

These uprights are thick and sturdy, which is what you want for something that's ~7 ft tall holding up shelves. I'm so happy with the freestanding system in my basement, that I'm putting one in my garage.

Used these supports in a very tight closet. They were easy to put up, especially since I needed to crawl in a tight space. They are strong and holding numerous pounds of canned food.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Boulder Delighted with elfa freestanding
Strong, looks nice, very flexible. Originally I planned to mount shelves on the wall. But having done that before, I prefer the freestanding hardware. No problems getting the shelves perfectly level. And I can expand it easily, move it to another room with ease, and take it with me when I sell the house.

We used the Elfa system to create a pantry in our kitchen. The system is so easy to install and the shelves are very sturdy - they house all of our cookbooks and serving pieces. Getting ready to purchase the system again for our kids closet.
