This was the 6th akadahome storage unit I have bought. I love their products. They are easy to put together. Holes line up and parts are all included. This is not a super high end heavy wood product but they are good quality and look nice. Considering the low price and ease to put together, I couldnt be any happier.

I purchased two different John Louis Home closet organizers and am very happy with both. They are a really good value for real wood products and have quality finishes. If you buy these systems take your time and read the assembly instructions thoroughly, particularly if you have never installed these types of systems before. The instructions are clear enough and the tools you will need are not extensive. They have a great contact point for help and parts if needed. They are very responsive!

File under - you get what you pay for. The bottom piece was a bit crushed and there were some dings in some pieces. But it is an inexpensive product, and not real wood, so I was not surprised. Other than that it is good. Nice compact cabinet for a small space. I was able to put it together fairly easily, though I used wood glue in addition to the supplied hardware. You can't see the crushed bottom piece now that it is put together. The top piece is a bit warped, but not too noticeable. All in all, it is a decent cabinet for a (relatively) inexpensive item. (I also used a coupon so that ameliorates things as well). So far it is working out well -- It's only been a few weeks and I worry the kids may be too rough opening the doors as time goes by. I would recommend as long as you keep your expectations manageable.

The John Louis closet units are well made and look upscale. The printed instructions are good, not excellent. But there are lots of helpful videos available on the website so I was able to assemble the drawers and install without my hubbies help.I gave these drawers only 4 stars because neither one had the score marks to align the slides. I was able to use a measuring tape but it would have been faster/easier with the marks. Nonetheless, I am very happy with the closet units and ended up buying another for a second closet. This is a great product, especially for the price.

The home we purchased had the "standard version" in all the closets. We purchased the "deluxe version" for our master closet and we are so happy we did. It was easy to install and the quality of this product is far superior to all the standard 'do it yourself' closets out there and best yet, it's real wood unlike all the compressed shelving out there. so worth it....

the overstock customer service was excellent. I have contacted them twice to ask for missing parts and both times were handled professionally and promptly send the requir parts for me to finish the closet. The product was in very good quality. However, it is best to have a professional to install it. I would order 'John Louis' products again if I needed more organzing products. Very happy with this order.

Love, love, love this product! Price and quality excellent! You cannot buy this in a big box store and still get the quality of the solid wood!

If you already have a JLH 16" deep tower, then you are already familiar with these. I bought this kit because I needed 2 more shelves for my tower. Earlier reviews of JLH products have mentioned quality control issues, but I have not experienced any issues with JLH after buying a Deluxe kit, a Standard kit, two more J-Brackets and two sets of wooden brackets. For these shelves, the slats are spaced evenly, the stain is even, etc. There may be some color differences between additional pieces and your original kit, but that is to be expected with wood. One thing I do agree with in prior reviews is that the wood is soft and will dent or chip if you're clumsy like me. Again, to be expected with a soft wood so be careful installing. Overstock delivered this kit in one day (!), no damages during shipping and extra hardware was included. JLH instructions said to drill holes for the metal studs, but all of my shelves were pre-drilled. Price was right as I had a $20 credit from Overstock, so I am a very happy customer. ** I am in no way associated with JLH products. ***

I bought these to use for display purposes at crafts fairs thinking I could be able to pack the products in them as well. The crates are held together by staples and the wood is so soft that the staples pull right out. I adapted by drilling holes and placing wood screws in every single slat. They seem to hold together fine now but sure would be nice if they had handles cut into the sides. Would be fine as is if they were not to be moved around at all. Price is good so I suppose I got what I paid for.

This product is overpriced. Its worse than ikea! The paint was chipped off on all planks. There seems to be one coat of paint on the planks (barely)! The quality of wood is horribly bad. Do not recommend to anyone.

I was very happy with the product. Everything came in the box as described. It was a little hard to put together. Def, recommend this closet. The price was good also.

The John Louis closet system is very well made and the wood is beautiful. It does take a bit of time to install especially if you have to cut pieces to size (i.e., closet system is sold to fit a 10 foot length wall but you may not have that length), but the instructions are pretty thorough. Try to find studs if you can because the closet system is fairly heavy. Dealing with customer service for the manufacturer can't be more easier or satisfactory. If you mess up or just need some extra parts, they ship it out to you right away without question. Overall, well worth the money and effort. Overstock is cheaper than other websites or Home Depot and Lowes.

I searched far and wide for a shoe cabinet that had a shallow depth and basically came down to either this shoe cabinet or one from Ikea that required mounting to wall. As I didn't want to mount anything to my walls, I decided to give this one a try (in the dark brown finish). The materials are nothing fancy, nor high quality, but it came well packaged and with only a small dent on one of the boards which did not require an exchange. The dark brown finish is a faux wood veneer which is not bad--nothing to write home about, but it doesn't look cheesy since it's very dark. I can see why some may have trouble with the instructions, but all in all, they are adequate. My biggest gripe was when I discovered that certain mounting holes were not fully drilled--it seemed like the drill press touched the wood and then stopped after marking them. However, if you're somewhat handy and have a drill, you could easily drill the mounting holes and move on with little issue, which I did. All in all, the product seems sturdy and functions well at a price point that can't be beat (even by Ikea). Highly recommended.

My husband and I installed 2 Deluxe 16" Honey Maple Closet systems with an additional stand alone tower and additional shelving. We consider ourselves "do-it-yourselfers". The product arrived on schedule with all pieces included and no damage to boxes or contents. Overstock mistakenly shipped one wrong item to us, but promptly re-ordered the correct item for us. Overstock's Customer Service Rep (Clinton?) was very professional and apologetic about the mistake. We had the carrier pick up and return the incorrect merchandise at no charge or inconvenience to us. John Louis does a great job with its packaging (thick cardboard, heavy-duty boxes along with ziploc-style bags that individually held all the screws and other hardware needed for each unit and accessories). Packing materials were wrapped around the contents/shelves, etc. for added protection. What we found very helpful were not only the written instructions included with the shipment, but also the website instructional video that showed examples of how to install the closet system. We worked on the project over a weekend, installing the system in our newly created 11.7'x8' closet. Once we completed a section, it was fairly straightforward on how to assemble the closet components together. We also ordered an extra stand alone tower, to which we added 7 shelves (some slanted and some flat for shoes and sweaters. The stain color seems true to the photos shown online and the system seems very sturdy in what seems to be a very nice Maple hardwood. The design in very attractive and the ventilated shelves will offer a nice airflow around the clothes. Here is the configuration/layout we opted for: Left wall: 48" upper and lower short hangs; 1 tower from kit with 3-8" drawers, 2-6" drawers and 2 shelve sections creating 3 shelf sections; 24" short hang on top with a 24" shelf on lower section, with valet rod attached. Right Wall: 24" upper hang attached to a 48" shelf above connecting to a stand-alone tower that rests upon the floor (valet rod attached). Side Mount Tie & Belt Rack attached inside right side of this 24" hanging areaWindow in between where we'll place a storage bench below window. Continuing next to window: 48" upper and lower short hangs. We used a haxsaw to cut the metal clothes poles and a radial arm saw to cut the shelves into smaller pieces (masking tape on area that was cut to help keep wood edges from fraying). We have 2-6' metal clothes poles leftover (because of the configuration we chose) so we'll keep and use those towards a future project (along with a variety of misc. extra screws, etc. as John Louis gives extras just in case). We highly recommend John Louis; it's a great product that is few steps above the box store options and a great option compared to the top-name closet systems that cost much more and, in our opinion, possibly not as nice in that some are not even real hardwood.

I bought two of these to put in my small laundry room to double it up as a mud room. Everything was well packaged as most things does that is bought from Overstock, but the quality of this product is poor considering the price. There are very similar products out on the market that are the same quality but half the cost- for instance Maid storage products found at places In addition to the poor quality of the product, the design is poor as well - meaning you can't fit a pair of shoes in one cubby hole. I'm a small 5 ft gal and my gym shoes size 6.5, will not fit. I was pretty mad. But, I did not feel like taking it back. So, I had some left over wood in the garage used my saws and cut my own bigger size cubby hole and had to paint it a different color to get everything to match. I have bought other things from Overstock before and have always been pretty happy, but this is something they should take down off the site and not sell anymore.

The product came in a damaged box to start with. There were at least 2 places where the wood above the screw had come out. The instruction to assemble were really bad. Also, it feels that the product was used by someone else and was sold to me after a return. The hardware came in a zip lock bag , I think even the zip lock was reused. The wooden pieces were chipped at multiple places. I cann't believe such items are sold from overstock. I would go back buying from another online retailer after this experience.

John Louis Home closet organizer systems are some of the few non-custom solid wood closets on the market. Maybe pricier than other non-custom closet solutions and not easy to install for a beginner, but well worth it. The wood is pine, a little bit softer and can get scratched easier than laminated products, but the closet looks beautiful. I ordered more Deluxe systems and accessories for all other bedrooms in my house. I recommend this product to anyone looking for a solid wood closet system. To someone not used to DIY, I would recommend hiring a professional for installation.

I've ordered 3 big orders of John Louis closet stuff and 2 of the 3 items were slightly damaged. The way items are being packaged is NOT GOOD. The drawers that I ordered were slipped in a big box with little insulation. Consequently the wood rubbed together and there were small dents. Fortunately for me, the shelves are high and the dents are not visible.

Got these to finish a project started with John Louis closet systems. Entire system looks nice, but is soft wood. ALternative products seem to all be particle board, so choices are limited.

I had received estimates of $4000 per closet to have a professional rebuild each of our walk-in closets, total cost would have been over $8000 for two closets. I decided I would do them myself and each closet took a week to breakdown the old shelves, fix holes, paint and put up new shelves. We saved almost $7000 by doing it ourselves. John Louis makes it easy to install, instructions were great and the closets are beautiful. We almost want to live in our closets they look so good. The extra storage created, makes our closets look empty. I ordered 4 kits and completely finished two 7' by 7' closets and there is enough wood and materials left over to do another closet. This is a great product that has made two people very happy!!!
