Pull-out drawer in base cabinet

Posted by sail-away (My Page) on

We're getting new granite countertops shortly (on our original cabinets), and while I have the base cabinets and drawers emptied, I'd like to do something I've wanted to do for several years---get pull out wooden drawers for the two shelves in a 24-inch base cabinet. Any recommendations where I might buy these or what type I should get?

While I'm at it, is there anything else I should be sure to do before templating and/or installation of the granite? Or anything I should be sure to ask or tell the fabricators when they template the counters?

Shelf Genie is one name for converting lower cabs to pull outs or roll outs (rots) drawers. Google that and branch out from there. hth

I'm not sure if you have anything in your dead corner. Mine was to small for lazy Suzan. I bought two mesh shelves and put them side by side, on bottom of one I put a spinner, and attached it to bottom of cabinet. On top I put mesh basket, did not attach and made sure I could turn it. In basket is my good processor, George Forman etc. on spinner is electric knife, chopper emerser,DH's grater too. On the other shelf I have a basket on top which is where I keep warranties and manuals,bottom shelf is empty,because to hard to reach. With the addition of pullout drawers in all lower cabinets I also made dummy drawer under sink a pullout for sponges,and made real drawer under cook top. For same kitchen cabinets I have a lot more room and am able to organize better. Enjoy your new kitchen.

Thank you, everyone, for the suggestions and links. I THINK the one tmy sent is what I'm looking for, but I'm checking them all out.

Ilene, Thanks for the suggestion for the corner cabinet. I had a blind corner cabinet in an earlier home, many years ago, where that would have been helpful. However, my one corner cabinet does have a built in, very sturdy lazy-susan type organizer, which I love. I just overlooked this one base cabinet that has never functioned properly, so I want to finally address it.
