Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased for Elfa Decor Solid Shelf I ordered these to go with 12" Elfa decor shelves that I also ordered. I originally ordered the 101/2" bracket for 12" solid shelf as the description on the website led me to believe it would go with the decor shelf. After it did not work, I called a store representative who clarified that the ventilated shelf brackets actually support the solid decor shelves. All is fine now, but website was not entirely clear to me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Right product; WRONG PACKAGING! I've been a long-time fan of Elfa - it's been in every one of my closets for the last 15 years (4 different homes). I ordered two of these brackets. The shipping packaging was 4x more than was necessary to protect and deliver this item. It was VERY EXCESSIVE - totally over packaged. Please reduce the amount of packing material you use. I will now more seriously consider local alternatives before buying online from The Container Store again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THIS PRODUCT ROCKS IN TIGHT SPACES! I custom designed a solution for our pantry which serves as a pantry, a place for our washer and dryer and has a small 1'x1' access door to our attic. Every inch is used thanks to Elfa. Best part of get the attic I have to take down the top 2 shelves. This is easy to do and to put back. Any other solution I found was not this flexible and we would have had to create another access place for our attic. SO it has been a great solution there. The reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that my husband bought a stand up elfa desk. When we tried to convert this cubicle stand up to something we could use at home with shelving above it we gained nothing. It was more costly to use it than to buy a whole other elfa solution even though the width and depth were perfect. So...just because its elfa and it is so supposed to be so flexible does not meant that it is flexible enough to covert to any solution in a cost effective manner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes installation a "snap" :-) I have installed a few things in my life, and by "a few" I mean a lot! I could not believe how easy the elfa system was to install. Initially, I was trepidatious, but once the header (top rack) was installed and the standards were hung, everything pretty much snapped into place. I can still remember the beautiful sound of the ventilated shelves snapping into place and then vibrating... I had so much fun that my wife decided to join in... not to be cheesy, but it was a great bonding experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with Elfa Last spring I tore down the fixed wooden shelving in my pantry and replaced it with Elfa ventilated shelving. I am thrilled beyond words with the result. I have so much less wasted space now. The fixed shelving always seemed to be the wrong height for what I needed to store (I was particularly limited on where I could put the cereal), the way they did the supports also ate up height in many spaces of the shelves, further limiting where I could put things. And, there were only 5 shelves, which meant things got piled up on top of each other without enough space to organize them in order to find what I needed. With the Elfa shelving, I now have 8 shelves in the same amount of space and each shelf is at just the height I choose for it to be, so I can fit more things in, where I want them to be, and what is there is much more organized than before. It's a great solution to the problem I had. In addition, Installation was straightforward and relatively easy. I had my husband help me hang the header, and I did the rest myself.

Community Q&A

Can the ventilated shelf brackets be used with solid shelving or just decor shelving?

I want to add a clothes rod underneath the Sand Melamine Solid Shelving, however, I ready that the ventilated shelving bracket only works with the decor shelving.
Asked by: KABIGAIL
The reason.I recommend Elfa products is because the place where I live had the cheapest, most ineffective storage products. They bent or broke. Anyone who is trying to maximize space and increase storage capability should shop at The Container Store. They will immediately recognize the quality of Elfa. I also recommend using the Customer Service Experts there. I did and don’t regret it. In the same day they re-designed my cabinets and closets, custom cut every piece, created easy-to-read instructions along with the Elfa pieces. I installed everything and am a satisfied customer who is thankful I made the decision to shop at The Container Shop.

12" shelf with 16" bracket

I am working with an existing closet I moved in to that has 12" shelves. I want to put hanging drawers in the middle of the wall. However, they are 16". The 4 extra inches coming out in the middle of the wall will be ok. but I would still need to keep the 12" shelves to the left and right of this section. And everything needs to share a bracket so I don't have a ton of the standards hanging. Question - can 12" shelves use/share a 16" bracket on one side? From looking at it, it appears it can since there are grooves in the bracket every 4". But I am not sure if this is ok in terms of design/safety.
Asked by: CCSS
Not with the existing brackets. But with a drill and small file, it is easy to modify a 16-inch bracket to support a 12-inch shelf on one side. Use a 12-inch bracket as a guide for marking the 16-inch bracket. I've made two of these modifications, and I wish Container Store would engineer these as an orderable part.

20" bracket

Do I need extra supports for 20" deep x 36" wide shelving? Can 20" brackets hold weight quite well? My closet is 38" wide x 26" deep. I am going to store old books and photo albums on this shelf.
Asked by: yukio
When installed properly (into studs where possible and using our wall anchors where studs aren't present), our elfa Ventilated Shelves and Ventilated Shelf Brackets can support up to 75 pounds per linear foot.

Can a Ventilated and Decor shelf share a bracket?

Can two shelves of the same depth (say 16") share a bracket where they meet when one shelf is ventilated and the other is a solid decor style shelf?
Asked by: Tom4
Yes, they can share a bracket. The both use the ventilated shelf bracket to install the shelf, so as long as the bracket is the same depth as the shelves, they can share a bracket.
