The valet does what it is designed to do, holds clothes. It was simple to install and appears to be well made. The only negative is that the cover is not metal, it is plastic. The pull out rod is metal (a good thing) so the plastic cover over the mechanism kind of stands out.

This closet system is so beautiful! It looks so much better than the wire or plastic ones that the home improvement stores sell. Even the hardware is made of solid wood! The assembly is easy too!

I bought this basket to mount to a door under my kitchen sink. It works great for holding my drain stoppers, drain screens, and plastic scrappers and gets those things off of the counter and within easy reach.

The prices of storage bags amaze me. I wanted a bag for out-of-season bedding, with a zipper, made mostly of fabric, since I live in the desert and storing in total plastic is not a good idea. I did not want to pay more for a storage bag than its contents cost! This was inexpensive, large, zippered. I attempted to order two, but was told it was out of stock.

The product came undamaged and with all the necessary pieces needed to complete the closet system. You are supplied with a plastic template to use if you'd like to draw out your own design. Included are 4 designs each for a size closet that are very helpful. My husband installed both systems in our two bedrooms and they were pretty easy to do. We are very happy with them and they are such a bargain. If you shop at your local Menards, Lowes,or Home Depot for similar closet organizers there is no comparison in quality or price. Would highly recommend.

My contractor was blown away by how nice this closet system is. A little challenging to install but gorgeous and overall, the materials seems sturdy with the exception of the hardware for the baskets, which are plastic and pop off. But the system is better than all the rest and much nicer looking and with the solid wood, should hold up better AND it is totally reasonably priced. Only irritatiion is that John Louis Homes does the shipping, not Overstock, and they were constantly sending me the wrong color or the wrong items. I had to keep shipping back. Overstock's return system made that a breeze, although it was still inconvenient. But in the end, it was worth it. It's stunning.

You can't see it in the photos, but there are holes on the outside of the boxes and each box is actually two sections connected to get the height they show. There are two sections, one is two boxes high and the other is three boxes high. If you're putting this somewhere it is going to be visible don't get it. It is perfect for a closet where the outside appearance may not matter. Easy to assemble and built pretty strong. Only drawback were the multiple extra holes they drill all the way through and then provide white plastic plugs to "fill" with.

I love these storage bags. By having the plastic bags inside the canvas box, dust isn't attracted to them. The bags are a good thickness and very sturdy. The zippers are strong enough that they don't pop open when fully filled. I got a huge queen size down comforter and 2 pillows in the large one and still had room to spare. The quality of these make them worth the price.

I bought these somewhere else, but I love them so much I am reviewing them everywhere I find them!!! I can fit two queens size comforters, and the matching sheet sets in ONE bag! The zipper is a bit cheap, so be careful. Other than that I love them! I have looked at several different comforter storage bags, and decided to try these....they stack nicely (when full), I can see whats inside and they hold so much!!! I want more for my extra pillows too! This helps me keep my comforters tidy and not plastic smelling during the warm months!

I purchased this item, plus the matching corner cabinet and tower with 3 drawers. This was the only piece that went together perfectly, everything fits, and the doors close properly. This piece is the only one of the 3 I'd recommend though. We're experienced "*** assemblers" and the quality and instructions for the items were a little sketchy. The packaging was really the worst part though. Instead of putting the box inside of a packing box, styrofoam was glued onto the box, and shrink-wrapped in plastic. I swear it took us longer to open the box than put the entire thing together.

The cabinet arrived well packaged from overstock,however on opening the box i noticed there were several dents and chips on the edges of shelves and side panels. The cabinet assembled easily until I got to the drawer. There was not one hole drilled into the front panel. It took some time to measure, mark and drill the holes needed. The closet is sturdy enough when attached to the wall,but it would have been better if the bottom panel had been cut out to accommodate a baseboard. The plastic anchors for attaching the unit to the wall are not deep enough to allow proper attachment if you have a baseboard. For the money spent it is an ok solution to a closet seldom used, but I wouldn't place it in a high traffic space.

This is an excellent closet system, and you can't beat it for the price. Bought it to fit in my son's 6' closet after the wire system he had in it just about collapsed on top of him. Those things are dangerous! The cheap plastic clips on the wire system started breaking from deterioration a couple of years ago. This wood system should last my 8-yr-old till he goes off to college and then we'll be able to use it many years after that. As long as you are handy with tools this system can be put together in a few hours. Plan ahead on the design, measure twice cut once and follow the instructions and you can't go wrong. It has many different configurations to choose from to fit where you want and how you want. Doesn't even have to be braced on the floor, so it frees up all your closet's floor place if you want. As others have mentioned the wood is softer, so if you use a battery powered drill/driver make sure to turn your torque setting down some. I would also recommend drilling pilot holes in some of the places they aren't already included. We also are using plastic clothes hangers over the wooden bars to minimize dents from metal. All-in-all a great system, and my son's closet has never been more organized!

We re-did the closet with a brand new organization system and ordered two of these. The 12 in size is PERFECT.... no need to order a larger one. The kit comes with everything you need well packaged and organized. It even comes with a plastic template to align your screw holes. All metal, solid, and good looking. We put ours at a slight angle to keep the cloths from sliding out but you really do not to. The tuck away neatly and easily glide out when you want them... yes they GLIDE! casters slide quietly and smoothly. :Scrolls like Butter: Very pleased with the price, the quality and the look. Would get more for next project.

I'm pretty handy, as well as physically strong, for a woman; I had big dreams about being able to install this while my husband was out of town on business. Well, that didn't happen... A lot of the dificulty we ended up encountering was caused by a slightly bowed wall in the closet. The system is NOT designed to accomodate things like that, and we ended up having to plane several of the shelf pieces off in order to get them to work. Also, if you are cursed with plaster walls, as we are, invest in steel stud savers or toggle bolts, as the plastic ones that come with just won't work. Once we got past the structural issues, the closet went together beautifully. It looks great, it holds a TON of stuff, and it is a significant addition to the value of our home. We plan to put them in our kids' rooms, too.

I purchased this item, plus the corner cabinet and tower with doors. Only the tower with doors went together perfectly - everything else we had to fool around with in order to make it work. This was the worst one of the bunch - the edges looked worn the first day using it, and we were never able to get the drawers to fit properly. After three attempts at the drawer hardware, at least they glide now, but they don't lay flat, as it shows in the picture. We're experienced "**** assemblers" and the quality and instructions for this item was especially sketchy. The packaging was really the worst part though. Instead of putting the box inside of a packing box, styrofoam was glued onto the box, and shrink-wrapped in plastic. I swear it took us longer to open the box than put the entire thing together.

This is nice stuff! It is very sturdy and looks good too. I had to trim off a small piece of shelf about 1/4" thick. I could not break the trimmed piece in half to put in the trash! The instructions are clear but you will need to be creative when configuring your closet in any way other than the standard configurations. On the tower, the tolerances are close so be sure to measure accurately and get the brackets plumb and level. You can add to the package to customize your closet. Just check around for the best prices. I'm going to add to it later. The only downside in the quality is that sometimes there will be a slightly bowed shelf slat. When you are laying it out, check to see if you have any that will be in a location that needs to be very flat. Clothing, blankets, etc. will not have any problem with this. Only when you have something hard to set there. The other thing they might consider improving is the plug for the holes in the angle bracket. They are plastic and don't match very well. Overall, it's a great product that will make you a beautiful closet!

Nice unit. I bought one for each side of the master closet (the second one goes up alot quicker than the first). Seems very sturdy and looks nice. A couple pointers that might save some trouble... -buy some different variations of plastic wall anchors to have on hand. The wide ones that come w/ the unit might not alway work (i.e. hit a stud). You may need a few of the narrower variety -Insert wall anchors w/ a screwdriver...a cordless drill may break them (although they provide plenty of extras) -I used oversized screws to mount the "L- Hooks" (the main supports) to the wall. I used #8 x 2" instead of the #8 x 1-1/2" that come w/ the unit -If you only have a 7-1/2 ft ceiling height, be careful to mount the top shelf high enough so that the "tower" bottom does not hit your baseboard molding. In my case, I drew the "top line" 1 ft down from ceiling, and would not have worked if much lower than that. -leftover shelf can be converted into tower shelves (2 feet long). Use a FIINE tooth saw (ie. hacksaw) for your cuts else you may come up short. -try to hit studs whenever possible....especially with at least one side of (3) mounts for the tower. Plan/measure accordingly. -I used a couple leftover slats from a shelf to make a wall mounted belt rack that compliments the unit.
