Rated 3 out of 5Â by Achad It looks nice after it is built
Plan on getting creative and using extra parts that you need to supply. The drawers are cheap, you need to use your own glue. I also clamped the drawers for extra support. Also, if you are not "very good" with basic carpentry you may have problems with the add-on parts. For instance, there are no written directions on how the drawers fit into the unit. They come in their own box and have directions, however since they are not part of the main unit there are no real directions on how they go together. Also, there are no side panels for the wall. I bought extra melamine, and made my own on a table saw. Overall I am now happy with the result, however if you build it as is I think you will have problems.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Impk Great system
This kit is exactly what we needed. I purchased and installed another Martha Stewart kit with accessories for the guest bedroom closet.
The system is easy to install and can be easily changed to a different arrangement. I used a strap clamp to clamp the drawers when assembled as feel the thin veneer wrap could tear at the corners when gluing. I wish the drawer sides would have had the glide anchor locations pre drilled but drilling at correct locations was made easy with template provided.
Although the adjustable clothes rod is easy to install, I personally would have preferred a non adjustable rod that could be cut to size as needed as provided in other Stowe Company systems.
Delivery was prompt, although I have received damaged pieces with both of my purchases. Home Depot made returns easy
Overall am satisfied with the two kits I have purchased and would recommend to others.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Tess Worst decision I have made
I ordered an entire walk in closets' worth of Martha Stewart product for our master closet. I used the Martha Stewart closets website to design everything. In the pictures online it looks as though there is a shelf going across the entire top of the system, as well as over any low-hanging clothes rod (i hope that makes sense). The kits they sent me do not have these shelves- they are just open and plain. I feel a little deceived. I was worried ordering online, and having to put it together myself, but thought I would take a chance.
Everything came in a couple days ago, and I have started to put everything together. What a nightmare. There are no instructions, as far as the way mine was designed on the website. It all just came in three starter kits, a bunch of random shelves, drawers, and panels. You just have to guess what goes where. As I started to map everything out, I realized there would be a shortage of 10 inches on one wall, as well as shortages on the other two walls.
Now I have to decide if I want to return all 20 or so boxes to Home Depot, or continue trying to put this nightmare together. I'm just not very confident it will work in the end, if i do continue, considering they messed up on my measurements (I double-checked).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Chief Easy build, but limited options
The kit is very easy to put together. The parts can slide across the track giving the illusion of unlimited options. However, you are limited by the closet bars which only extend to 35" and can only be shortened by cutting.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Bearsbum Get What You Pay For
If you're looking for an inexpensive organizer, this is the one. With a little ingenuity, and reinforcing, this could be an average unit.
The drawer design is clever, with the continuous box linked by a thin layer of veneer. The veneer on 3 out of my 4 drawers was dry-rotted, so each corner was torn and disconnected. I'm glad I invested in a picture-frame clamping system in the past, otherwise gluing the four mitered pieces together would've been a challenge.
For what I paid for this unit, I expected what I received. I wasn't about to pay upwards of $1,000 for a closet!
