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 great product Just moved into a rental where we can not screw into the wall. The free standing unit works perfectly.

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 I love Elfa I have been using these shelves in one configuration or another for years now and they are always reliable and great looking!! i have paired them with homemade shelves using recycled wood and they look great.

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 Very Sturdy Product 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.

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 Excellent 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pantry solution 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.

Community Q&A

How many hanging slots does each length contain?

I would like to know how many hanging slots are contained on each length of upright, specifically the 83" length. Or are there a certain number of slots per length of standard, i.e. Per foot? Thank you.
Asked by: Murph1887
The slots are spaced at about one set per inch on our standards.

I have 82" ceilings and want elfa freestanding shelves. Can you cut the uprights by 6" so I can maximize the shelf space?

Our freestanding uprights are available in 3 heights but they cannot be custom cut.

I wanna make a shelving with freestanding system and I'd like to know this uprights can be mounted on the wall with nails like 'elfa Mounted Standards'. Because I don't wanna use Stabilization Kit. Also I'd like to know thickness(depth) of this figure out wallbase. Thank you.

Uprights + "Feet" height

The description says that the uprights are 41"; if the feet are 5", then am I right in assuming that the overall unit will be 46" high? Or does the top bar add an extra 1"? Thanks.
Asked by: ksmri
The overall height of the elfa freestanding unit with 41" uprights and feet is actually 43" The uprights fit into the feet for stability.
Answered by: alooney
Date published: 2017-09-19

Do I need to order 2 of the uprights?

The description of the product says you need 2 uprights per section, but it isn't clear to me if you get an order of a set, or just one.
Asked by: TiffC
Our uprights are sold individually. If you have a 24'' or 36'' wide solution, you will need to purchase two. If you have a 48'' wide solution, you will need three uprights.

Can you create a freestanding unit without the stabilization kit?

I am trying to maximize the space in a small closet (31.75" wide) and I cannot mount anything to the back wall so a free-standing unit would be perfect. However the stabilization kits only come in 2' or 3' lengths and cannot be cut to a custom length like the shelving. I would like my unit to be 31" wide.
Asked by: AndreaJP
Our elfa freestanding units do require the use of the stabilization kit, and cannot be custom cut.
