Very nice looking, a fraction of the cost of professionally installed closets. I have ordered two of these closets online and never experienced any problem with broken or chipped prices, but I can understand how it might happen. Excellent product for converting a closet into a pantry or linen closet. If you need to cut the shelves, as I did, they cut smoothly, the melamine did not chip. The vertical panels let you use every inch of space, unlike the elfa system, which is also much more expensive. Absolutely recommend.
I used a handyman for installing because I have had bad luck with hanging shelves in the past and the whole system rests on a metal rack that must be bolted into studs. Once you have that set, you can reconfigure with ease.

First I want to say that this review, for the sake of efficiency, should include the Martha Stewart drawers as well. We had two identical reach in closets next to each other in our master bedroom. We knocked out the wall between them and took the old wire and plastic closet organizers out. I went on the Home Depot website and then to the link for the Martha Stewart Closet Design which is where I designed our closets. It was easy and I liked doing it. We wanted less furniture in our bedroom so our closet design had one of these closet starter kits with four drawers in the center and then we added two more 'kits' on each side for a total of five kits with half hanging 'tops' and four drawers on each kit bottom. We have twenty drawers--five, four inch deep across and fifteen, eight inch below. Our nephew did most of the installation work and my husband put most of the drawers together. They both were very impressed with the quality of all the pieces and parts and how well everything worked. It is beautiful and functional. We are thrilled with it. The cost is considerably less than the other three closet systems we considered, but the quality was the same or better. The drawers slide quietly and smoothly. I am including a photo although this was taken when we still had some 'work stuff'' lying around and it is visible--so excuse our 'whatnot' but we are very excited about our new Home Depot, Martha Stewart closet system We plan on using the space above the closet system for seasonal clothes and bedding and the space below for shoes. The spaces on either side (minimal), will have hooks for scarves, ties, etc. And before I forget---the free shipping came two days early; the truck driver put it in my garage (it was raining and my husband wasn't home). Every piece and part was included; nothing was missing; nothing was damaged. This was a 'project made in paradise'.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Therocks Great closet system...
This is a very sturdy, functional, and practical closet system from every aspect. It is also very adaptable to merge with existing closet systems. Price was great with free delivery but one of the boxes had obvious damage and some of the shelves inside this box were nicked up a little. If I had to use all of the shelves I would be making a return or exchange. However, I couldn't use all of them and was able to use undamaged pieces to complete our project.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by philashah Nice closet system
We designed our nursery closet system using the Martha Stewart online closet designer. This was easy to use and made customizing the closet very well. This was one of the pieces that we received based on our design. Once attached to the wall, the closet system is sturdy and is a nice bright white. I highly recommend assembly with a power drill; this made it much easier. For our design, we ended up with extra pieces, which was confusing initially. Give this four stars for lack of instructions and confusion with sending extra pieces, but I'd love to do other closets in my house using the Martha Stewart system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chrise2 Excellent System
I used several of these as well as other parts of the system (shelves, drawers and lots more shelves) to replace the wire closet shelving system in our walk in closet. If you take the time on the web site to plan out the system correctly, it assembles very easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GaryofAG Easy to Install
We were renovating a rectangular, walk-in closet (100" x 75") and ordered two 4' to 8' units, one for each side and the 72" starter unit to go on the end. We were worried about some of the reports of the product arriving with damage, but ours arrived in perfect condition. As far as installation goes, the first day I demo'ed the old closet and painted it. The second FULL day I installed the new closet. Installation was really easy, but I am a handy guy with experience using tools and the like. But the design couldn't be easier. Follow the instructions and install the rail at the proper height, make sure it's secured to studs or use the enclosed molly's when needed, make sure it's level and that's it. The frames just hang from this rail and can be slid and adjust as needed until it's the way you like it. Then we Installed the rods and shelves (we didn't get any drawers) and we're done. We were really surprised how easy it was.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happilymarri3d Exactly what I was looking for!
My wife has always wanted a walk-in closet. Recently we had a bedroom open up so we made plans to use that as her walk in. I looked around at several different manaufacturers and decided that, for our budget, this unit would be a great test piece that we can build off of.
Ordering/Delivery: Shipping was great - got the unit a day early. One end was a little bumped up, so my UPS guy and I opened the box and inspected it - no damage and no scratches. Perfect.
Installation/construction: Easier than the diections! The directions went through a step by step process down to how to mount the baracket if studs were not within 3 inches of the panels. I lucked out and my panaels were directly over the studs. 2 screws, a level, a capenters pencil, and a measuring tape. Add 10 minutes and a cordless screwdriver, shake-well, and you have the bracket mounted. The instructions call for you to assemble the wall unit on the floor and then mount it to the bracket. Well, your truly blew his back out yesterday while cleaning the garage, but promised the wife it would be up by Monday! Hey, no problem - at first I was worried because I have read several people say it takes two people to mount this puppy. Secret - outhink the directions. I placed the panels on the track, measured the shelf width, taped the panels into place with the level and screwed the shelves on the mounted panels. The whole process took about 10 minutes. once that was done, I made sure that everything was square, again with the level, mounted the bottom brace and the top clothes bar in about 5 minutes.
Conclusion: For the money, this is a great product. Many of the negative reviews sound like they are related to shipping issues. The installation was a snap for one person. With a little forethought, you can get this bad-boy up in about 25 minutes. For my money, this was a great purchase and I will be completing the rest of the wife's dream closet using this product line.
PS- I am not a big fan of Martha, so that in no way influenced the positive tone of this review.

Turned bedroom into my closet. I had a company give me an estimate of $6,000.00! I had a private contractor put up the martha stewart closet system at a fraction of the price. Looks expensive, but time will tell if it will last long term..i certainly hope so.....very pleased at this time
