This system is lovely installed. I put two systems on opposing walls of a very small bedroom of my old house (which doesn't have much for traditional closet space) and it looks like a high-end walk in closet room with the addition of an island in the middle (I used a low dresser with a marble top for the island.)
Instructions are easy to follow, but it does take a while to get up, particularly if you're working alone, and you will need another person to manage a couple things easily. (But nothing that takes more than a minute or so.)
The materials were sturdy, there was more than adequate hardware (extras of things), the stain was even and pretty.
TIPS: I have plaster and lath walls, so I could not use the plastic anchors provided, but instead took the time to find studs, and install (my own) longer wood screws directly into the studs when possible. For areas that needed attachment that were not on a stud, I used molly bolts. In addition, since plaster walls are rarely completely flat, I used some composite shims between the J-brackets and the wall where needed. (Wood shims would work fine as well.) But make sure you're using long enough screws so you are sure you go far enough into the stud, since you have the thickness of the bracket, shim, plaster and lath to get thru before you even hit a stud. All in all not much was necessary for adjustment to make the system work well on plaster - I would think you'd have some real problems if you tried to use the plastic stuff in plaster though.
I actually modified this organizer to fit in a small walk in closet instead of the intended use of a straight long closet. I used an on-line design tool prior to ordering to ensure that I could make it work. The result was very nice and very functional. I recommend that you design this carefully before attempting assembly. With the help of a skilled son-in-law it took about 5hrs to complete the closet.
The wood is soft and easy to mar so be really careful. A color stick is included so I think they are expecting this.
Assembly was a little tricky because of the intended use but all the hardware supplied made it easier. Also take care when cutting the shelves. A little bit of pre-planning on the cuts will help so that you don't cut into a slat.
There are only 2 con's to the product that I see. The screws supplied to attach the shelves were tiny and I really question their ability to hold any heavy objects. I bought a size larger. Be sure to pre-drill or you will split the wood.
The second con is the rod. The attachment method looks good but takes up a lot of hanger space and requires a number of them when the rod is over 5'. I also lost 3" on each end of the rod due to mounting requirements.
Be sure to use ample screws and anchors when mounting to wall. This makes up for the wood used to make the organizer. A hardwood version of this organizer would be a killer product at a slightly higher price point.
I liked the results so much that I intend on buying 3 more organizers to redo our Master Walk In closet. I will do something different for the rod to increase strength to enable hanging all of the clothes.
I'm not mechanically inclined. The instructions were easy to follow and the manufacturer provided plenty of hardware. All pieces were included, there was no damage. The completed product is beautiful.Two notes: 1. If your closet configuration is 8', you are going to have to make saw cuts to the shelves.2. A decent 12" - 18" level is mandatory. (I saved $75 at Overstock.com over the warehouseprice for the same product).
Definitely worth the money. We ordered only one for our walk in closet and plan on ordering another one. Very easy to modify to the size of the closet. It looks very professional and it certainly gives the closet a whole new look to it. Plenty of space and makes everything a lot more organized.The directions were a little confusing at first but once you figured them out it was not too bad. We were able to put all together in about 6 hours. We split it into 2 nights and that worked out great. It was a very wise purchase.
The system arrived in a matter of days, faster than expected. There were no scratches on the wood and all the hardware was included. I hired someone to put my system in because it was to be installed in a complex space with a sloping roof, a light fixture, etc. Also because I'm all thumbs. In any case, the system was very, very flexible and we were able to adapt it to the problems at hand. It looks great - all hardwood compared to the other wire systems that are on the market - and it meets all my needs. The price compared extremely fairly to the wire models in the market. I recommend it highly.
Very nice but some difficulties in following the installation instructions. Definitely takes two people to build and a drill is needed in addition to the tools listed. Some of the instructions could be clearer. But now that I have it in, I am very pleased with the look and color. It also gave me double the closet space I had before. I love it. It has only been in for a week so not sure how it will hi=old up but seems very sturdy and well made.

Yes and you have the option for multiple configurations with the same kit. Great quality. I've installed three of these. and with the leftover materials as i have a shorter closet, i built a cool tie rack that stands about seven feet tall.bluesteelmonkey on Mar 12, 2013
yes, but I created my own custom design to fit my closet and I still used all the pieces.g8buys on Mar 18, 2013

I have installed it into six foot spaces with no problem. It can configured in many different ways as it is very flexible. The wood shelves can be cut to length as I did. But you will not have to cut the shorter shelves. I've installed three of these in closets less than 7 feet. they are well built and cutting them is not an issue as it is all wood.bluesteelmonkey on Mar 12, 2013

The closet systems are cut to fit up to a 10 foot closet and there are multiple configuration options provided. You are able to design the closet anyway you would like in order to meet your needs. It does not matter the size of the closet as you have up to 24 ft of shelf and 18 ft of hang space.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 5, 2012
The example configurations included in the instructions show the top shelf with rod at 84 inches from the floor and the lower shelf with rod at 42 inches from the floor. These are examples only and you have to choose your own configuration. My ceilings are only 7 feet so I installed a top shelf at 72 inches and bottom shelf at 36 inches and it is sufficient for hanging shirts on top and slacks on bottom. My other shelf/rod is at 64 inches for dresses.mavin716 on Mar 16, 2013

Drawers only work with the 16” deluxe system. The closet system can be configured in almost any way as long as they have side walls to attach the closet too.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 25, 2012

It does not matter the size of the closet as you have up to 24 ft of shelf and 18 ft of hang space. I have found that this closet organizer can be put together in multiple ways. you can basically take each section and put them together in the pattern you would like. For example you can have all the clothes bar sections lined up and that between them there is 18 feet of hanging space. You can then put the other cubicle bellow or above. It can basically be put together in whatever fashion you would like to organize and fit your closet so there are not specific dimensions to give.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 9, 2012
