Elfa Storage Systems from the Container Store

If ease of installation and fantastic optionality are your main concerns, I'd recommend the Elfa Storage Solution.  Elfa is the Container Store's premier closet system brand.  Elfa offers customizable modular closet storage  systems that can be designed to fit any space, from a small reach-in closet to a large walk-in.  They offer a variety of finishes and accessories, such as jewelry drawers, tie racks, shoe shelves and belt racks to personalize your space. The best part about it is how easy it is to design and custom fit your home space.   One option for customizing your closet system is to use the Container Store's custom design tool which I find quite easy to use.  The other option is to work with a Container Store storage specialist, who can provide material and design recommendations that might get overlooked when using the custom design tool.  Either way, I think you'll be very happy with an Elfa!
