I purchased this kit, because it is hard to buy many of the pieces I wanted individually. Even though I had pieces left over, it was about the same as buying pieces individually and I got most of the hardware I needed. I am very familiar with the John Louis closet systems. I have installed several others. I like the quality and the finished look. For this closet, I had to do my own design. It was a small closet in my teen daughter's room and she needed all of the hanging space she could get. The tower would take up too much of the closet, so I only used one side and left a small area for full length dresses. I took three of the 24" shelves and doweled and glued them together to create a shelf above. I added some metal straps to reinforce it. The hanging bar design is the only downside in this kit. They want you to use wood blocks (supplied) to attach the bar to the shelf above. I was trying to maximize hanging capacity so if I used them I would be loosing 5-6 inches on each rod. I chose to screw in from the side and add some brackets below (not included). I'm not thrilled with how it looks, but when covered with clothes, I'm sure it will be fine.

Good quality, nice looking and great customer service from John Louis Home. It took us between 4 and 6 hours to install it. Stud finder, level, measuring tape and drill are a must. Miter saw or table saw can be really helpful. The only down side are the instructions included with the product, they're very poor and make the installation process unnecessarily time consuming and sometimes frustrating: one the most notable things is that the parts and hardware have all letters to identify them, however, the letters are mostly absent in the step by step instructions?!? Other than that, is a great and fairly priced product.

Very happy with this product. Fitted well into small closets. They work very well. It offers good visibility of our stuff and easy access. Assembly was slow but relatively easy. Take your time and read the instructions. Note that the wood is soft so cut it with a sharp fine saw blade. The touchup marker to cover the nicks is a nice bonus.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Real wood...but not real good wood
I bought this because all the other kits I saw use the cheap fiberboard, and I wanted something that looked higher quality. It is real wood, but the wood is a bit soft and not as sturdy as I hoped. It is probably the best you can do at this price point, but I can't go all the way to 5 stars.

If you want something beyond the fake wood or coated metal, this is the best solution out there.
Yes, it takes a little time to assemble, just read the directions several times and don't be in a rush.
Buying a packaged system is the most economical, but that being said I combined a 16 inch tower with a 12 inch package...that way I got nice deep shelves and was able to use the 12 inch hanger depth in my closet. If you have normal bi-fold closet depth, you need the 12 inch hang depth.
It really looks fantastic, I have no clue what people mean when they say wood is soft...it's very good quality wood.
If you have questions, call John Louis Home customer service , they are very helpful.

Pretty easy to assemble, need to take your time make adjustments as needed, drill larger holes, or cut to fit, etc.. like with any self assembly. The video on line is a much watch and was very helpful. looks nice in the closet and makes for excellent room. My husband assembled this by himself.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Julie Not easy to put together
The product I got looks wonderful...On my floor and propped up against my wall. I have not been able to put pieces together due to the fact that holes were not drilled to the correct size and I had to have my husband make the holes big enough for the hardware to fit in. Very frustrating to not be able to assembe the product as intended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nukeboy Nicely made, well designed
Very nice looking closet kit. The tolerances are very tight; make sure the sides and back of your closet are plumb!
It helps to have a power screwdriver and a miter saw. My closet wasn't plumb, so I had to some trimming and shaving. Regardless, very nice closet.
