Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa freestanding line 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Conversion 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 didn’t want to deal with the plaster walls of this old house). I was able to use three 83” freestanding uprights, three 17” freestanding feet and two 2’ 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 5 by from 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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 ^_^

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in the Pantry 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 :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Freestanding Components 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a whole new dimension 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Community Q&A

Can the freestanding upright be cut by the Container Store to be shorter?

I am trying to organize a armoire space that is 38 inches high. Would prefer to use freestanding rather than drill. Can the 41 inch upright be cut by the Container store to the height I need and still work?
Asked by: organizerquestion
I also would like to cut them shorter. Although the Container Store can't do it, I'll bet you could do it yourself with a hacksaw (which is how I've shortened the regular Elfa standards in the past). If I end up trying it I'll report back.

Cutting to length

I can probably cut these down to a lesser length, but thought I would ask. I'm needing a unit only about two mesh baskets high, can the free standing unit uprights be cut down to a manageable size for my space? Thank you. K
Asked by: KKirk
I would not try to cut the uprights as they are extremely strong and should not be cut.

How many inches do the feet add to the total height of the uprights?

I see two answers to this in the Q&A. The feet adds 5 inches or 2 inches. What is the accurate additional height? Thank you.

When added to a Platinum or White Elfa freestanding Foot, our exclusive Aluminum Foot Height Extenders allow you to increase the height of the Foot by 2" in order to place an Elfa freestanding solution over baseboards up to 4" tall.
