Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Mamajane1234 Nice addition
This was hard because the closet had to be cleaned out to put this in. Once the hard decisions were made we began work on the assembly. We decided to use only the shelving unit because that involved removing the least hardware already in the closet and one wall is an angled wall. The assembly directions were very good and the 2 units went together quickly. Putting them together and attaching to the wall was not hard. The directions were good. I was a little disappointed in the finish because it scratched and peeled pretty easy. Other than that, I like the finished look - would have loved to had the double rods had we put it on the other wall and still might re-arrange at some time in the future. I must admit that closet re-organizing is an overwhelming task for me. I was pleased when finished even though the picture does not look all that organized.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Jonathan Great system expecially for the price
This was an awesome way to modernize the original 1960's closet that was put in when the house was built (clunky wood dowels and shelves) It looks very high end and it was actually really easy to put together. There really aren't even a lot of parts that you have to put together, just the two shelves that stack on each other, everything else just bolts to the wall or to the unit itself. I got an extra 18 inches of hanging space compared to my old closet plus all of the shelves for storage. For the price you absolutely can't beat this system. I bought the middle unit and then 3 extra shelves. I have only put in one shelf on top so far, and I am deciding on a shelf on the bottom under the high-side hanging rod. I cant honestly say that I never, ever........ever right reviews and this is the first one I have done. I plan on buying more for the other closets in the house now as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by timtsb Great quality for the price!
For the price of this closet organizer, I couldnât be happier! I was expecting something lightweight and cheap, but I knew my expectations were wrong when the FedEx guy told me he could barely carry it on his own. This thing is surprisingly sturdy!
Assembly was easy. The other reviewers who had said it was time consuming and complicated mustâve never assembled anything from Ikea; comparatively, this was a breeze. I did it by myself and it only took a couple hours to assemble. Just pay attention to the instructions and youâll be fine. I didnât scratch anything and the screws didnât chip or split any of the panels. The only thing Iâd say Closetmaid should have done differently is include a small tube of wood glue since itâs required for assemblyâ¦no big deal though, I think most people own wood glue.
Installation was also easy and only took me about an hour. You just center the cabinet, secure it to the wall, mount the brackets for the rods and snap the rods in. Thatâs it. They even include drywall anchors.
My wife and I love this organizer. We didnât lose any hanging space because there are two rods on one side (making up for the space the cabinet takes up), but we gained a lot of shelf space. Although dark, youâll see in my pictures itâs a lot easier to keep our stuff organized. Rather than piling it up on one long shelf, we have a lot of shelves to spread our stuff out on. Weâre very happy with this product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by headhunter You get what you pay for
I followed the instructions to a t...but still had to disassemble some parts before final assembly because the instructions were wrong in a couple of places..Also, I worked with this on a carpeted floor with a tarp over the carpet..Was very careful with the pieces, but the veneer still chipped off in some places..Especially along the edges..Yes, it's pressed wood, but the quality still should have been better. The color is nice and it seems sturdy, but that really doesn't matter when you see the chips and tears from the veneer. Could have been a really nice piece of furniture..Anyway, it's up, (except for the bars, I'll finish that tomorrow.) the wife says it looks ok, so that's all that really matters I guess. What I will do before I do the other half of the closet is take measurements from this and make my own shelving with pin and pocket hole jigs, from real wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by MacHi Helps my mess - um, my closet - look a whole lot better!
We have put together kits like this for years so this one was no different. Decent quality for what you expect and pay for. No need to remove baseboard because in my house, they're pretty thin. Once attached to wall behind it (and the sides with rods), the unit stood nice and tall and obviously not going anywhere. All the parts and pieces were included and nothing was damaged. Love the color - makes my closet look fancy and rich. The non-fixed shelves are easy to move around. Rods are sturdy enough to hold my hanging clothes. Makes me interested in getting more of these units for the rest of my bedrooms' closets.
