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.

Are these uprights 83" long/tall or are they 83" tall when mounted to the required feet?

Are these uprights 83" long/tall or are they 83" tall when mounted to the required feet? In other words, can I use the 83" uprights in a 84" tall closet?
Asked by: gmacthoy
The dimensions listed are without the feet. You will need to go with the next height down in order to ensure a proper fit on your wall.Please LiveChat with us or contact our Customer Solutions department for assistance with your design.

Height vs. foot length

Can any height Elfa freestanding upright be used with any length freestanding foot? (acknowledging the use of recommended shelf size according to foot length.)

Can I use the 24 inch free standing kit with shelves that are cut to 32 inches each or do the shelves have to be exactly 24 inches as well?

Asked by: LHA318
The 24" freestanding kit are meant to be used with shelves which are 24" wide. Our wall mounted elfa shelves are a little more flexible and can be designed to accommodate 32" wide shelves.

Max depth and width

When choosing ventilated shelves to go with the freestanding uprights and legs, what is the maximum depth shelf I can use (e.g. can I choose 20" deep shelves)? Also, what is the maximum distance apart I can place the uprights for a moderately light load (e.g. can I purchase 3' or 4' wide shelves)? I have used elfa extensively with wall shelves, but never done a freestanding unit.
Asked by: melrowgo
You can use 20" shelves with the freestanding, so long as you use the 21" legs. The uprights will be the most strong at 24" widths. 36" is the max width that can be used with the freestanding.

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.
