15" drawer stack, how to configure?

geomegMarch 1, 2013

Basically there is only room for 1 drawer stack of 15" in our tiny kitchen....

What is the best way to configure our one and only drawer stack?
Should the 4 drawers be of equal size or 3 shallower and then a deeper drawer? Is there a rule about drawer stacks?

Thanks

I would go 3 equal and one deep plus a toe kick drawer since you are running low on drawers. We have two drawer stacks in our small kitchen and they are approximately 6/6/6/12/tk.

Thanks, that's what I thought too. The cabinet maker has them drawn out as 4 equal drawers which I think looks odd??

My 18" drawer stack with a deeper bottom drawer if that helps. Excuse the lack of toe kicks... it's only been 2 years and we're still not done.

Thanks for the photo! That's what I'll ask him to do instead of 4 equal drawers.

Geomeg - I also have a small kitchen. I went with the 3 smaller/1 larger but my recommendation would be to plan out what you need the drawers to store and then measure those items - plan around what you actually have!

I also recommend searching GW for the many posts that show how people organize their drawers - most have the title "Show me drawers" - below is a link to the latest post. It's amazing how much drawers can hold when done efficiently!

Here is a link that might be useful: Inside drawers...

On either side of our stove we have one 14" stack and one 15" stack. Each one has three drawers, one shallow for utensils/knives and 2 deeper ones.

In this particular stack we keep knives and turning forks in the top drawer, saucepans in the second, and frying pans in the bottoms. On the other side of the stove the top drawer has utensils used at the stove and on the sink (turners, can opener, spatulas, etc.). The second drawer is the bread drawer, and the bottom drawer holds dish towels and pot holders. This arrangement has worked well for us.
