I was very pleased with this. Very easy to put together, have already filled the closet back up and all very sturdy. Thinking I should have purchased with doors on the shelving but might try to add later. Remember this will offer less rod space than your prior standard sized closet with 2 rods running all the way across. I did end up adding a 4th rod just to help out but I knew this going in.
My closet is very small - 57" long x 18" deep. After reading a couple of helpful reviews and asking some questions, I realized that I could do some minor alterations to make this kit work for me. I had to cut the hanging rods to make them fit into the small space, plus I had to attach the rods to the tower further back than the instructions suggested due to the shallow depth of my closet.
The tower was easy to assemble, and the instructions were well written with good diagrams.
The project turned out great, and maximized the limited storage space well.
Considered building my own but given time and tools i chose to buy this instead. The 16” tower is the model i went with. Closet was 48-5/8 wide x 23-1/2 deep x 8ft. The materials remind me of Ikea. The laminate is thin and easily chips. It is laminated on both sides of the shelves. The socket for one shelf cracked while putting together but didnt fail during install. I also bought the shelf and brackets. The shelf is not very sturdy even at 35” wide. I would do solid wood if your doing 48”. The height is perfect but lacks extra shelves. Cut some from another 48” shelf and used 5mm pegs to hold up. The base unit has adjustable feet which came in handy to level. Overall its a closet and the tower will sufficiently store the many shoes of a teenager.
In a standard 70s home, you can only use the 2 rods on one side otherwise you’ll have to cut them if you want all 3. Still happy we purchased this, it does add a bit more room but mainly I look how organized it looks.

Turned out real nice
Wasnt sure about this when i seen it in stores but she had to have it! We ended up adding a few extra shelves and when it was finished it turned out real nice! She loves it
We are updating closets and used this kit for coat closet and kids closet. I installed these myself and I did not have a hard time to install. My only mistake was cutting the boards to accomadate closet space. It would be nice if something was included for those that dont have the tools at home to cut
