HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Simple designs can be done very quickly within a design session. You will likely get a design and be able to walk away with the product on the same day if the design is done in-store.
We’ll help you choose your finish, from classic shelving to premium trims to create the look you are after.
With more complex designs, we will take your brief and return to you within a few days with a quote.
We also provide a scale drawing. After your design and quote approval, the goods will be ordered and the store will advise you how long it will take for delivery.
Example of an elfa design.
You can install elfa yourself or installation can be arranged.
elfa is simple to install, it is hung from the wall from a single Safety Top Track. The rest of the components then just click into place.
This system is based on 60cm wide sections that each can hold up to 200kg. When securely anchored to the wall with at least two wall studs, it spreads the weight evenly over the wall.
INSTALL TOP TRACK
Classic elfa is hung on the wall from a Safety Top Track. Add Hang Standards and you are ready to create customised storage with components.
Click on your shelves. So simple to install, your system will start to take shape and is almost complete. Shelves can be easily repositioned too.
This is the exciting part! From a basic shelving system, elfa has a vast range of accessories and Decor trims to help you customise your storage.
To create a functional space for a craft loving family, elfa was used on the wall in this rumpus to hold the tv and other items, and a craft station was created using two elfa drawer towers.
elfa in the Garage
A single utility track with some hooks can be super handy to get items off the floor.
Working around pipes and a vac system, this clever solution in the garage makes the most of the space for this sporty family.
Lisa’s Garage had become a dumping ground for things to ‘dealt with later’ and the garage sale that never happened. Some quality shelving and good storage (Howards Tubs) results in an amazing transformation.
In this garage, we used elfa Classic shelves in white. The owner wanted to store their surfboards and have easy access to their wetsuits, so a hanging rail was added to accommodate this.
