Where to purchase pullouts for cabinets?

Posted by deborahc (My Page) on

The 1930 kitchen that will be my winter project has quite a few really deep shelves on the pantry wall. I had thought of buying some wire pullouts for these so they would actually be useful. It's hard to fine something when it's buried in the back of a deep cabinet.

I looked at the container store, but they seem pretty limited in sizes. Anyone have recommendations on where to buy these?

I may even get a few for my cabinets. I'm tired of things falling out when I want a bowl or pan in the back!

Thanks!!

Because pictures are fun- here is the wall of cabinets. They are about 29" deep. The cabinet to the left of the fridge has 3 shelves, the one to the right has no shelves. Maybe it's a broom closet? It's too short for most brooms and mops though. I was thinking a rolling shelf in that one.

At best I'd say measure and buy some plastic baskets that fit at Target. It is not worth the money of retrofitting the interiors for a student's kitchen and will add little to nothing to the value of the house as a rental or resale.

will a number of young students be residing? will milk crates fit?turn them on their sides and stack them inside-each young person has an instant cubby for soupcans/granola bars/pop tarts/whatever-or stash their purse/keys/laptop/scarf/gloves/etc. Detroit burb has it correct with spinning your wheels about this n that storage customization which left to young college people will "do their own thing" the first week of school anyway.

Thanks gals! Great ideas. I'll keep my eyes open for some sales this season (or garage sales in spring)

I spent much of last weekend looking for rollout shelves to fit odd-sized cabinets. I looked at the Container Store and almost bought those but then I found some options for custom-sized rollout shelves, which seemed like the most efficient way to use our space.

We went with a company called Shelves that Slide, link below.

Costco also has something similar

Hope that's helpful!
