Platinum elfa Ventilated Wire Shelves is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 329.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for cleaning supplies We have had problems with insufficient storage in our home. The solution proved to be installing elfa shelving in some rooms and closets. For example, we modified our 2 hallway closets to store cleaning supplies and pantry overflow, respectively. I used a staggered form of shelving by installing an extra hang standard and 3 different widths of ventilated shelving. This method greatly enhanced the visibility of items by using a 20" for the bottom shelf, with a 16" above that, with a 12" above that. Our cleaning supplies and extra kitchen (mostly beverages) are now neatly arranged in an 'easy to see' form. The biggest hardship was getting the top track installed in the limited space of the closet. Once the tracks are in place, the rest of the installation goes extremely smoothly. The shelves are very sturdy and quite capable of storing the juices we buy when on sale. Elfa has proved to be the main solution to our storage needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just right for a narrow pantry A quick and easy install (I DIY'ed it in an afternoon), and an economical solution to the lack of shelves and odd size in my narrow kitchen closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Space! I’ve now had seven or eight wall shelving units installed in two separate homes! Love the extra storage space the shelves give. I just had wall shelves put in my sewing/craft room and haven’t filled them up yet. It’s better to have too much space than not enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing difference I have a work area off my kitchen that only had the counter and one wooden shelf high up-- Not the best use of space. I measured the area and decided that the Elfa system was the way to remedy the situation. I installed 3 rows of shelves and, of course, it needed to have that finished look, so I added white fascia. I moved the wooden shelf to under the counter top and below it I have a storage container and a recycle bin. I am SO excited about this new work area. We have used Elfa in our pantry, and our closets not only in this house, but our last one. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Closet Make-over! My closet was a nice size for a walk-in, but the shelving was old wood and the layout was inefficient. After deconstructing, painting, putting new carpeting on the floor and re-designing the layout, using Elfa Ventilated Wire Shelves, my closet became my favorite place in my condo! I recently sold that home (that Master bedroom closet was a huge seller) and now plan to use a similar design in a few of my new home's closets. I didn't remember to take a "before" pic, but here are "after" pics. Thanks, Container Store & Elfa!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shelves in varied widths are great Love the design of our son's new closet. A 12 inch shelf at top and a 16 inch shelf provide tremendous options in lieu of the old fixed shelf that was just too deep to be functional. My 10 year old loves his new closet and all of our closets and kitchen pantry are Elfa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to Closet My Elfa closet from a few years ago felt crowded and needed reorganized so I added more shelves. The shorter depth works great with existing plan. Thank you fir making my life simpler with better organization!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bedroom closets Purchased the elfa ventilated shelving to use in our bedroom closets. They are tiny 1950's closets that just weren't suiting our needs in the best way. Purchased elfa and I am so glad I did. We installed ourselves and had no issues. Shelves were easy to put up and have been great so far. Will buy again for the other bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laundry Beautiful Elfa wire ventilated shelving is an amazing tool for organization. Can be cut to custom fit any size and allows for ventilation and easy view of what is on shelf. We combined platinum wire shelving with white fascia trim and solid white shelves, hanging laundry baskets and krinkle decorative storage. The laundry looks sleek, modern, clean yet is extremely efficient and customized to our needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa ventilated shelving is high quality and lasts I have been purchasing Elfa shelving since the early 2000s. It is one of the best products a homeowner can buy. You install it once and you will never have to redo your closets again. I have used Elfa ventilated shelving in my closets, my utility room, and my shed. I only have one more closet to redo. Easy to install--I design my own closets and do my own installation. I am a 64 year old woman. This shelving does not get sticky and it will support a tremendous amount of weight if you follow the installation instructions. All components are designed to last. LOVE Elfa!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Laundry Room! I am a huge fan of the ELFA system. This past weekend I tackled my laundry room (while my husband was out of town! Girl Power!) and am so happy with the results. I was able to more than triple my storage space by using the ELFA system and your helpful designers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organized crafting Without my re-positionable Elfa shelves, this super crafty closet would be super chaos. As I use or acquire new material, I can adjust the shelves to keep it all organized.
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best! We have now done three closets with the Elfa shelving systems. They are very sturdy and because of how they are designed and all the pieces that are available, we were able to maximize the space in the closets. They are easy to install and look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa closet systems.. just the best.. for 34 years I have been using Elfa products a long time. I bought my first basket systems in the early 80's and never looked back. I always hated dressers and the basket system worked wonders.. I used it in my kids rooms as they grew up as well as the master bedroom, basement and garage.. Now I am living in a new home in another state and my original Elfa baskets are STILL in use.. the old frames and baskets are in storage areas and work great while newer frames and mesh baskets are in our master bedroom and guest room closets.. The rest of the closets are done with the Elfa shelving. I love their clean stream lined look and their endless flexibility.. they have been going strong for 34 years now and I see no end in sight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Organization Turned out better than expected. The employees were very helpful with designing our space and choosing the right fit for our area. The Elfa Ventilated shelves look great in our closet, bathroom, tv area and in our craft room these are very sturdy and stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Product Built a new home and told builder not to put any shelving in any closets. We customized pantry and all 7 closets. Totally maximized space with Elfa. Just now doing our garage. People who see our closets go "wow!" Easily changeable. When I show clients homes I often comment on how much more space they could have if using Elfa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best closet organizer in versatility and price! We needed a cost effective system for all our closets. The ability to rearrange the design without tools is a necessity for reorganization.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic organization Once these shelves are in the brackets they are super easy to move around. I've already reconfigured my laundry room unit twice in 6 months based on changing needs. I have a super tiny laundry room so I included a track for behind the door storage and even managed to get one of these shelves over the door. Much more storage that way and the ventilated shelving doesn't block any light. Fantastic!
Date published: 2016-01-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great every time! I've used the ventilate shelves at home and loved them so I had the opportunity to use them at work. LOVE them! Really solved our storage shortage. Everyone loves them.
Date published: 2016-01-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Length Note that the 2 foot shelves are really 24" long, but the 3 foot shelves are actually 35.5". This was a good thing for us because our space is very tight. It would be helpful if the exact measurements for everything were listed on the website.
Date published: 2015-12-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Sheving but....... Purchased this "system" in order to increase the storage area in a very small laundry room. The design is very good and the flexibility which the components offer is very helpful. The "customization" of the shelf lengths however leaves much to be desired because whatever tool is used to cut down the length of the shelves leaves very rough edges and in fact makes using the finishing bracket covers very difficult if not impossible to install. So I would recommend only using the standard length shelves in order to avoid these problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ELFA System Is The Best I have a older house with small closets and I need to use every inch of it. I tried three other closet organizer systems before I saw elfa system at my friends house. I used elfa in all my closets and in my garage. I like Elfa because ones you put it together it becomes one solid peace. It doesn't swing or move like other systems. Also there is way more available options that other systems offers. What's also important for me is that you could re-arrange it. I already re-arrange on of our closets from a guest closet to to men closet, and finally to kids closet. I recommend elfa to every one. Couple of my friends also got it after they saw my closets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For flowers too! Ventilated shelving provides great air circulation and rust is not an issue. Highly configurable and expandable. Most of the Orchids on the top shelf have dropped their blooms. The bottom shelf is for African Violets.
Date published: 2015-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I am embarrassed to say that my husband and I are the least handy people around. If I could afford to call someone, even to change a light bulb, I would. But the Elfa system we bought for my kids' closet was unbelievably easy to install. It was done in probably three hours, would've been less but turns out we got the measurements wrong. Actually the whole process, from design to installation, was really easy. It can get a little expensive so wait for the sale. The designer overestimated the number of shelves necessary, but return policy is easy. All in all, no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service and Product! This was my first The Cintainer Stire online purchase. I was a little uneasy because I liked the one on one in-store service, especially when it involves measurements for my closet space. I got phone services with someone who knows how to order exactly. The service was great. The product came in as stated. I love the sturdiness and quality of the bar and the top shelve. It's a great product and the price is perfect. I plan to redo my other much bigger closet with the same Elsa system. I Definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crafts contained I used these wire shelves above a set of Elfa drawers, as shown in the white mesh craft wall photo on the website. I have used the drawer system in several locations but this was my first experience using the shelves. Once I really read the directions and made several visits to the online help chat, the installation was easier than I made it! The shelves are very sturdy and it is nice to be able to look up and see the contents from below. They hang on a wall in the basement of a 70 year old house and take it from dingy to clean, crisp and organized!

shelf depth

I have a 26" deep closet that I would like to use most if not all the depth. Do you sell shelves that deep? If not could I hang two 12" shelves one in front of the other to create a 24" depth? I have a reach in closet.
Asked by: Nomi
No you can not. The brackets are fit for the wire shelf so go smaller like 18".

If I purchase the 16" X 4' shelf, will I need a middle bracket for support or will the brackets on the ends only work?

Asked by: Caros12
Depends on the weight you are putting on it, it may sag a little if to much weight but not break

HOw close to the top of the hanging standards can I place a shelf?

Asked by: SunnyJ
Very close to the top, but if they are up against your ceiling, you would have a shelf that is only a few inches from it.
Answered by: CindyMK

If you are combining wired shelves to span a longer distance, do you need a shelf bracket on each side of each shelf? Or can 2 shelve share a bracket?

Asked by: NikNak
Shelves can share a bracket. In the photo below, the top three shelves all share their middle brackets. I used two 3' shelves to make one 6' shelf for the top three.
