I have now installed both the Standard and Deluxe versions of this closet system in my house. The Standard one is 12" deep, and the Deluxe one is 16" deep. The Standard one is also half the cost of the Deluxe one. For pure bang for the buck, the Standard system wins. From a fit and finish standpoint, the Deluxe system wins (but you're going to pay extra for it!) What I will tell you is that the Standard one is definitely worth the money, but is really more suited to a non walk-in closet or a coat closet due to the depth of the system. The shelf unit is not adjustable like the Deluxe one is and is a little trickier to install, but once it is in it really stays put. The hanger rod is slightly different between the two systems as well - the Standard one is a wood bar that hangs down from the shelf above with periodic supports, while the Deluxe system uses a metal rod that is attached to brackets from below. I wouldn't say one is necessarily better than the other, but just different. The fact that this system is meant for a 10' closet means that for most people, you'll be able to use the one system to outfit at least two or three closets. I used the shelf system and a short section of coat rod for my mudroom and still had enough left over to outfit two other small closets with shelf and coat rod. As for the fasteners and hardware included with the set, what I have run into on both the Standard and Deluxe systems is that they give you plenty of drywall anchors, J-brackets, and screws but just enough or not quite enough u-brackets (to support the shelf ends). This is easily rectified by buying L-brackets at the local hardware store as a substitute. Finish of the system is very nice, easy to cut, and fairly forgivable if you are off by a fraction of an inch here or there.
In comparison to all other systems on the market, the John Louis systems are easily the best bang for the buck - both Standard and Deluxe. If you have the extra money and want to outfit a walk-in closet, go with the Deluxe. If you are tight on money or if it is not a walk-in closet, go with the Standard system. They both take time to put in, but well worth it in the end!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Very good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
It's imposible to beat this deal. In addition of being durable, affordable, easy to assemble and stylish, it is completely made out of wood, which allows it to be perfectly altered to ones needs. I had three smaller closets and was able to outfit them all with only two kits. There are four proposed configurations in the booklet, but in reality you have a lot more options if you use a little bit of imagination and planning. Excellent product.
This is a very good product in comparison to most other types of closet organizers that I have seen. It is helpful to have an extra hand to level the shelves. Not too hard to put together. Took me about 3 hours total. Instructions have several different layouts already designed for 8 and 10 foot wall lengths. This is made of nearly clear of knots pine wood with a light maple tone finish. I would buy again for sure.
Have bought 4 of these organizers and love the look and function they give to a closet. My husband installed them- the first one took longer but after the learning curve- it got easier. I would recommendto anyone. Shipping was fast, even to Wyoming and nothing was damaged.
I'm no handy-man, but I'm patient and pretty good with instructions. The instructions are a little tough, as many have said, but good enough. I actually turned an entire 15' (or so) wall into a closet and put two of these together. Had to customize the plans since none are for that type of setup but it wasn't too difficult. They give a bunch of different plans and you can get the basic idea enough to make up your own. I did this by myself and it probably took me about 8 hours to do (taking my time to be careful as possible). I didn't actually have to do much cutting at all and just used a hand saw to do it, and then I just used a cordless screwdriver and that was about all I needed for tools. It's been up for about 4 months now and it looks very nice and still feels very sturdy, even though my wife has LOADED it up completely. It looks really good and she likes it a lot. Might buy another for my daughters closet (if they become available) and would definitely recommend to others.
Brought two of these for each end of our closet. The directions were a little rough to decipher. It took us about three hours for my husbands end of the closet to figure out and get it installed due to cutting around the posts and beams. It took only about 1.5 hours for the other one which went much more smoothly. Love, Love, Love this closet. It is installed at our camp and I brought some baskets for the other essentials you don't hang up to put on the shelves like socks, under garments etc. Actually, much more convenient than a dresser. They give you ample amount of screws etc. The solid maple workmanship was excellent and it looks absolutely beautiful in our post and beam camp. I would highly recommend this if you want a very substantial and quality product..
Absolutely beautiful. Real wood, we had a carpenter put it together in my daughters closet so I can't comment on how easy the install was but it did take him at least 1/2 a day. Love that it is real wood
My husband and I really like our walk in closet now! We liked the versatility in the sets received. We bought two sets. It took about 16 hours total (mostly by himself with occasional help from me, as I had to care for the little kids) but with the right tools. Good drill. Good level. Good stud finder. Good tape measure. It also took him time to remove the original wire racks in there, putty and repaint to make it look nice and new. I would recommend this to others. If you want to go beyond the standard setups provided, you will want to buy more arches to support shelving, as well as if you do not have a side up against a corner, an arch will be needed to support it. We cannot complain. It looks fantastic and even matched up with a nice dresser in the same exact wood tone from Bassett.
I bought three of these closet systems. I had thought that I would be able to update 4 closets…unfortunately, that did not happen and bought a fourth today. This closet system is very rich looking & creates a neat, tidy look to otherwise messy area.…if you purchase this system you won't be disappointed!

In the deluxe Closet system, measurements for the length of each 16" shelf are given in the product Q & A. That is what I need in order to purchase the kit above. So, what are the LENGTHS not depth of each shelf in this kit?debbie149 on Sep 25, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
There are three shelves that are 24 inches in length and three shelves that are 72 inches in length.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 25, 2012
I asked 3 questions requiring that you check one box and do measurements and not repeat the literature given. The question below is still not answered so let me try again.
1) If you set up the vertical wood stripes in a tower like shape, how are the shelves attached to these pieces. Since extra shelving can be purchased, how are they attached.debbie149 on Sep 25, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
There are predrilled holes on this unit so that you can add more shelves. In addition, there is an "L" hook you would use to secure the shelf. We''re sorry about the confusion and hope this answers your questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 25, 2012
