Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

First, I love that it can be customized in countless ways. And easily reconfigured
It consists of expanding shelves and Telescoping rods which you can adjust to provide you with 12 ft. of hanging space and 22 ft. of shelving space.
Adjustable shelves, telescoping rods, top rails, uprights and uprights extensions among others assist with significantly improved closet organization.
I think we really maximized the space – I even added larger versions of my shoe bins to store winter boots and make use of that awkward space under our longer items. I also love that my purses all have their own space on the top shelf.

What reviewers didn't like

May not have enough screws or ancors depending on the structure of your wall
The organizer is not deep enough
The spacing limitation has also left us with another problem: the baskets slide out, which is great, but now we can’t install double sliding doors. If we move the baskets over to the right, they bump into the frame and won’t open.
