A quandary that many posses when planning a new home or remodeling the kitchen in their current home is the question of having drawer stacks or installing pull out shelves behind the cabinet doors.
Traditional kitchens typically had one drawer bank consisting of three drawers with the deepest drawer on the bottom progressing to a smaller drawer on top that had a drawer front the same size as all top drawers in the remainder of the cabinets to give the kitchen cabinets a symmetrical look. A very functional array but not always adaptive to the lifestyle of the homeowner.
The solution is pull out shelves rather than all drawers. Yes, keep that top drawer so that all the cabinets look the same but allow the rest of the cabinet to be adaptive to your lifestyle.
You can install three pull out shelves behind the doors to give that three drawer cabinet four drawers or even five if you are storing smaller items. Nothing says that a kitchen cabinet can only have three drawers. And with pull out shelves you don’t have to have progressive smaller drawers for symmetric reasons, you can install two tall pull out shelves to fit your storage needs.
With different mounting options you do not have to settle for a single shelf on the bottom of the cabinet with an additional shelf in the middle. Why not install two pull out shelves side by side on the bottom using base mount brackets, giving you a more flexible storage area. Then use a pilaster system that allows additional drawers to be placed at varying heights as you dictate. Homeowners that have flatware storage problems can utilize a pilaster system and install five or six pull out shelves in one kitchen cabinet.
With pull out shelves your kitchen cabinets do not have to be traditional or constrained. Look into the many options available at Slideoutshelvesllc.com and make your cabinets work to your storage and lifestyle needs
