Many of us know that pull-out cabinet drawers in the kitchen can make life a lot easier. There’s no need to rummage through dark, deep cabinets for a pot, pan, or bag of chips when you can slide a drawer into the light, but the possibilities for pull-outs go beyond traditional pantry-style drawers. These special kitchen accessories can boost the functionality of your kitchen or improve the organization of your bathroom.
Large or small, a kitchen must function well for you to get the most out of it, whether that means excellent meals or great entertaining. Accessibility is the main ingredient, and one globally useful element, are storage features that pull-out. Here are some of our favorite pull-out storage solutions for inspiration, and you can always request a free Wellborn Cabinet catalog for more information.
Popular Pull-out Shelves & Storage Solutions for Kitchens
Tired of having to hunch down or kneel on hard floors? Sliding shelves are a popular design choice in kitchen cabinets today. Instead of deep base cabinets underneath the countertop, a sliding shelf makes it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for without all the hassle. Deeper drawers are perfect for your big pots and pans, keeping them within easy reach and making it much quicker to find what you’re looking for.
Blind Corner Organizer
If you opt to keep the standard base cabinet underneath the counter-tops, then you’ll want to add a blind corner organizer. For those hard to reach places where cabinets intersect, blind corner solutions roll-out at the cabinet opening to bring all the contents to you. No need to crawl halfway inside and exert yourself just for that one bowl or pot.
How often have you spent too much time searching for your cooking utensils in a drawer that’s just a big pile of junk? By hanging them next to your stove, it’s impossible to overlook your favorite spatula. Clear out the clutter on the counter or find the perfect place for over-sized utensils like spatulas, tongs, or stirring spoons by adding a utensil organizer. This is a thin, storage drawer that slides out to effectively display your tools. It can be incorporated into a small space but makes efficient use of every inch of your cabinets.
Tray Divider Storage
It’s often a challenge to find enough space to store big baking sheets, trays, and cutting boards. This clever pull-out forgoes the hassle of having to layer heavy trays and platters on top of one another. Why is it that the tray you need is always on the bottom of the pile, anyway?
Top Pull-out Pantry Shelves & Organizers
A pantry cabinet offers unique storage areas—whether walk-in style or built-ins—if you don’t find a way to keep it organized a pantry can get out of hand quickly, that’s where base cabinet organizers come into play.
Pull-out racks are the perfect storage solution for boxed, canned, and bagged pantry items. Gone are the days when you need a standalone pantry taking up space better suited for an island or a breakfast nook. Gone also is the need to push items around on shelves in search of smaller items. Instead, a floor-to-ceiling pull-out rack with open, easy-access shelving can be custom-fitted into an existing cabinet space—the pull-outs make life easier. Bring everything to you with a pull of the handle.
Keeping your counters free and clear looks tidy and leaves more space for cooking prep and entertaining. Wellborn Cabinet’s Hide A Mixer provides easy access to everyday items like toasters or coffee machines, which can slide out in a snap and just as easily be hidden away when not in use.
Multi-Purpose Pull-out Shelves for Cabinets
One of the best ways that cabinet pull-out shelves and racks help you save space is by moving trash and recycling bins out of the open and into a lower cabinet. With a double pull-out trash bin rack, you can quickly separate the trash from the recycling. You can also dispose of waste while standing at a workstation instead of running across the kitchen, hoping you don’t drip every step of the way. When you’re done, push that drawer closed and walk away. It’s simple and fashionable.
Spice Storage Solutions
Many people store spices and oils inside cabinets or on the countertops. A pull-out spice rack near a stovetop brings commonly used cooking seasonings close-at-hand while freeing up your cabinet boxes for other items. It’s also the ideal location for those experimental chefs who always want to add a little more spice to their cuisine. Spice racks can be utilized in other rooms as well, perhaps in the bathroom to store the abundant nail polish collection.
Under Sink Pull-out Storage Solutions
The recently launched, vanity sink pull-out organizer is guaranteed to thrill makeup enthusiasts with its clear plastic bins and the wooden compartment for hair styling tools. The superior under sink caddies make storing cleaning items a breeze and more accessible.
