Add Pullouts

Posted by Errant (My Page) on

I would like to add pullouts to my old cupboards. Since I've never had pullouts before (other than the RevAShelf trash/recycle I added), I'm not entirely sure what I should be looking for when searching.

Anything I should watch out for while shopping these? Any recommendations? Are there deals out there?

I bought these from Costco. They have changed my life!

Thanks, Suellen! Do you have pictures of yours somewhere?

I tried using that site and entered all of my measures to get pricing, but ended up with an error :(

I'll try from another computer later. Maybe it didn't like my Mac?

Another site I was looking at is http://www.shelvesthatslide.com. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Sorry, I don't have any pictures, but they look just like those shown on the Costco website. Nice quality also.

I'm sure I overpaid, but I ordered 6 pull-outs from KD. They match the cabinets. It's night time here, but I'll try to take a picture. I know I am losing space, but it makes the cabinets so much more useful. The picture shows 2 pull-outs, where I put baking suff. Other pull-outs hold canned goods.

I really like the concept of these which were just posted the other day by someone else on this board. I think you still have to order the "drawer" separate.

If you're at all able, I'd just put in drawers.
By "able" I mean whether or not you can get drawer fronts from your cabinet manufacturer.

If you're going to do this, go all the way! Get rid of the door that gets banged up. Plus, why open something to pull?
I eliminated all pull-outs (other than garbage) and reach-in bases. As suellen_2010 said, it changed my life!

Of course, if you can't get drawer fronts, I do say pull-outs are a wise 2nd choice.

I bought some drawer boxes (which pull-outs are) at The Kitchen Source, Barker, The Cabinet Joint.com, and found them at reuse centers for $2.00 - $10.00. Even at reuse centers you can find them prepped for drawer glides.

For hardware, I either picked it up at the reuse centers or I buy from A H Turf, because they have THE lowest prices on Blum hardware, and you can buy just the components.

Sometimes reuse center drawers already come with the locking mechanism because people don't know what that is and don't remove it. I just need the glide part. And visa versa. :)

About two weeks ago, I put in four roll out shelves in my old cabinets. I ordered from Barker Doors, total was about $300. Local company 'round these parts and custom made to order (and maximize space!).

The boxes are incredibly sturdy, and made of plywood.

I've also ordered a replacement drawer box from them.

I ordered 4 pull out shelves from slideoutshelvesllc.com about 2 months ago for about $125 including shipping and they are the best item I have in my kitchen cabinets. Pullouts make finding and getting to things so much better and easier.

RE: Add Pullouts

Thank you for all of the suggestions. I took a look at slideoutshelvesllc.com and those seem to be a bit better value than the pullouts I priced earlier, so I may go that route.

Yes, I would love to convert all of my lowers to deep drawers, but that's more time and money that I don't have.
