A kitchen drawer make access to everything in the space easier to reach. Adding a kitchen drawer to an existing kitchen is a popular and inexpensive alternative to a complete redo of the lower cabinets. A kitchen drawer provides 50 per cent more storage than a conventional one. Also the streamlined look of the design exudes style and sophistication while combining functionality with overall aesthetic appeal. Choosing drawers for your lower cabinets provides far more flexibility meaning kitchen elements can be stored and retrieved easily. Baseline drawers are also better for storing large items such as pots, frying pans and casseroles. Whilst rollout trays provide similar functionality they require additional cabinetry: doors and rollout trays.
You can also install a kitchen drawer and rolling shelves in food pantry storage areas to maximize space in tall cabinets. Utilise drawers and pull-out shelves in full-height cabinets for use as food a pantry. Install the drawers and rolling shelves to a height of 50 inches from the floor, and fixed shelves above that. Use full extension ball bearing roller hardware on all drawers or shelves in pantry storage areas to allow for optimum use, and to accommodate the weight of food containers. Organise the pantry with full drawers on the lower section, and sliding shelves or low-sided drawers on the upper section.
