Converting Kitchen Shelves into Drawers

Converting Kitchen Shelves into Drawers

The lower cabinets where I store most of my canned goods and baking supplies are deep, dark, and inconvenient. Tired of losing things in the back corners, not to mention pulling everything else just to get to what I need, I decided to install roll-out cabinet drawers. In my tiny kitchen, this turned out to be a very easy space saving solution.

I picked up these easy-to-install roll-out cabinet drawers from The Container Store. And when I say easy-to-install, I mean it. It took longer to take all the food out of the cabinet than it did to install the drawers. The roller frame screws into the cabinet shelf and then the drawer attaches to the frame. The drawer and frame are steel reinforced polypropylene and can support up to 6o pounds. Now I no longer have to kneel down and dig into the back of the cabinet for that lost can of peaches!

The Container Store has a few different roll-out cabinet organizer options to fit almost any cabinet size - including a stainless steel option from simplehuman that would look great in a modern kitchen!
