ShelfGenie® Glide-Outs™ Everything Within Reach
Do you need more storage space in your kitchen? Are you tired of getting down on the floor and digging to find what you need? Do you have a pantry closet with items lost in the back? Or perhaps it is a blind corner in your kitchen cabinet that frustrates you the most. Our professional organizers have found some amazing solutions with ShelfGenie® Glide-Outs™ and our clients are loving it! These pullout shelves or drawers are retro fitted to your existing cabinets or closets.
At first you may be wondering how I could be so excited over pullout shelving. Without experiencing it first hand, it’s difficult to picture what a difference it can make, but I’ll try to get you excited as well. Take a peek at your lower kitchen cabinets. You’ll most likely find that the upper shelves in your base cabinets only extend halfway from the back of the cabinet forward. This means you may be losing up to half the storage potential for these shelves in each and every lower cabinet you have.
Now don’t be upset with your cabinet installer. It’s not his fault your shelving extends only half the depth of your cabinet. There’s a logical reason why. If the upper shelf extended the full depth of the cabinet, you wouldn’t be able to see or find anything on the shelf below. When you add ShelfGenie® Glide-Outs™ to your existing cabinets, the upper shelf becomes a full depth shelf that pulls out providing you up to double the storage space. This eliminates air space or in other words, it maximizes your space. Since the Glide-Outs™ have a 100 lb weight capacity you can store heavy items on them such as a KitchenAid® mixer.
Beside maximizing space, pullout shelving reduces or eliminates the need to dig or get down on your hands and knees while trying to find what you’re looking for. The Glide-Outs™ are full extension which means what is all the way in the very back of your cabinets pulls completely forward to the front of the cabinet making it easy for you to see and get what you need. As you get older, you’ll want to bend and kneel less. For others, knee and hip replacements make accessibility a necessity, not a luxury.
When you install pullout shelves or drawers in your kitchen cabinets or pantry you can install more shelves than what you previously had, maximizing your storage space. You can add more because pullout shelves or drawers can be as close together as the tallest item on the shelf or drawer. With stationary shelves (ones that don’t pull out) you need to leave space above all items on the shelf to fit your hand in and over the items to access what is in the back. With pullout drawers or shelves there is no need to leave the extra or “air” space, also known as wasted space.
There are unlimited solutions with ShelfGenie® from under the sink pullouts built around your pipes and garbage disposal to trash and Lazy Susan solutions.
