Aesthetics: The wood,finish and hardware are of considerable quality and look great. I chose the Red Mahogany finish and it truly makes a difference in our closet (we had those regular white wire organizing systems). The edges are soft yet masculine enough to appeal to any husband/significant other and the shelves are reminiscent of a spa-type atmosphere.
Options: The kits include design ideas for numerous closet sizes and configurations and have everything you need. Hardware, drywall reinforcements, touch-up stain, diagrams.
Ease of installation: Although capable of being a 1-person installation - the job would be much simpler with 2. Simple enough for the novice handyman, tools required are limted and basic - if you have a hammer, power drill/screwdriver and a saw of some type, you're in business. Obviously, the right tool for the right job makes any task easier, but if your toolchest is limited, the above mentioned items will easily get you thru this project. Instructions are easy to follow and installation time isn't long and drawn out; it took me working by myself to completely install one kit approx. 2.5hrs (for our closet, 1 kit outfits one side with some remaining pieces). Be sure to install into as many studs as possible for strength. I hit 90% of the studs in our closet and the shelving is strong enough to hold the weight of my 3-year-old who decided to sit on one of the lower shelves (shoe shelf/rack) to help daddy work:-)
Modifications: If you're really handy and like a challenge, take any remaining pieces to really go all out.Read more ›
3 long pieces (either 48" each or 60" each)
3 2' shelves
4 contoured support brackets
9 or so spacers for the hanging rods
4 6' trim pieces
Tons of hardware (screws, anchors, brackets, etc.)
You really need a good trim saw, or a table saw...I can't imagine cutting the shelves with a hand saw...
It took me a while to "lay out", and design my own little customized piece. I think that I started sawing a little too early, and didn't think to make the shelf on top long enough to be one of the "stacking shelves". But it all worked out in the end...Fortunately, there is plenty of "dummy room" with the brackets in that if you cut a shelf too short by an inch, the bracket will cover for you. I had a hard time with some of the screws and brackets that were to support the shelves. If you wiggled the shelf around trying to get it in to the right spot it "crunched" the wood...Once I got going though, it really came together quickly, and looks great as a final product...Wife is very happy with results...I have tons of hardware left as I used much longer screws to really drive it in to the studs for years of use...Do get some spackle though, because leftover damage from removed wire shelving left nice big holes.
I was familiar with the Container Store type of shelving units that have a top anchoring horizontal rail and then other rails that hang vertically to form the support structure for the shelves - this unit is not at all like that. The first thing you need to know is that the system is essentially 3 horizontal shelves (72" long each) that you attach to the back wall of your closet with the "L brackets" on each stud across the wall; the support for the front of the shelves is either a side wall bracket or the "vertical support rails" that hang from the top shelf and attach to each shelf all the way down. Once you understand that then getting started on the installation will go smoother - hanging the top shelf will take the most time and then it gets quicker, but go slowly on the top shelf and get it right. Measure the width and height of the inside walls of your closet so you know what you are working with; don't forget to allow for the scuttle hole opening to the attic if you have one in the closet (I had to cut the top shelf so that I could remove a part of the top shelf in case I needed to crawl into the scuttle hole - you definitely don't want to remove the WHOLE top shelf in the future. Use the template planning guide before you start, if you don't you'll do it after you make your first mistake. Don't cut the 72" shelves until you are sure you are making the right cut. Read all of the instructions several times over before you begin.Read more ›
I did a walk in closet and needed 2 basic kits, 1 12" tower with 2 door sets, 1 16" tower with 1 door set plus 5 drawers, 2 8' shelves, and 6 2' shelves. (Yes, you can mix 16" with 12", but you'll need the curved support brackets where shelves would normally screw into the towers.) I did not use the manufacturer designs at all, but I did use the assembly instructions, stating which screws to use where.
If you're doing a large closet as I did, don't expect to be done in a weekend. Mine took 2 months, because I took 6' pieces and created either 2 3' pieces or 1 4' piece with 1 2' piece. You'll need at least a rotary saw with a wood finishing blade; otherwise, the wood splinters. Don't expect your cuts to be perfect unless you have access to a factory that can cut the pieces for you. The shelves that are not inside towers can be off measurement by 1/2" and still work well, since the hardware allows for imperfection. I bought 3 2' shelf kits (and metal dowels - sold separately on another web site), which come with 2 shelves for inside the tower. Holes needed to be drilled to fit the dowels, so I made a template for equal spacing before drilling.
1. The tower kits only come with the 2 side pieces, 1 top piece, and 1 bottom piece - no shelves, so unless you're using the tower for hanging dresses, you'll need to buy shelves.
2. The wood is made of soft pine, so it dents easily. Any sharp objects will scratch the finish.Read more ›
