If your looking to not spend a lot and get great looks this is what you want. I just finished installing this unit into my closet and it looks great. It took me about 5 hours to put it up and I would say I have a fair knowledge of carpentry. When I first opened the box and took everything out it was very intimidating and the instructions were not very clear but once you take your time, measure your closet then again then again and read the instructions a few times and pick out your choice of configuration (there are about 4-10' and 4-8' configurations not just the picture you see on the website) I have just under a 8 foot reach in closet and I had to trim down some of the shelves to fit into my closet, which this was the most nerve-racking part chopping into the unit you just bought. But like I said measure and measure and measure once more to make sure its what is correct. The instructions really don't give you the clearest description of how much your cutting, you have to stare at your chosen configuration and figure out how much to trim off. Also my house wasn't very level so leveling the unit in my closet would have just made it look crooked, so I took things into my own hands and used the measurements from the floor and ceiling. It's definitely recommended that you drill your hangers into studs in your walls if you have them. Once you get going the instructions start to make a bit more sense. The unit looks fantastic in my closet my only complaint is that the wood is very soft and dents quite easily. It's nice that they supply a scratch pen with the unit. If your looking for something a bit more durable you might want to go with the deluxe model that had the steel rods, but if your going budget minded this is the unit you want, great looks, great price and for the most part if you take your time and think before you start screwing into your wall it is a pretty easy install. One other problem I had was some parts of the walls in my closet were not straight so I had to shim some of the shelf hangers with some washers, might not be a bad idea to have a few of those around when you install. Overall a great option for your closet!
