Reclaim Space in Your Cabinets You Never Knew Existed
If your kitchen cabinets are crammed to overflowing you might be doubting that there’s an extra square inch anywhere to use up.
But you’d be wrong.
There is valuable real estate in your kitchen cabinetry. You might say that you have a whole hidden world of storage space at your feet.
Behind the toe-kick of the vast majority of kitchen cabinetry is just an empty cavity. Do-it-yourself drawers make use of this otherwise wasted space. Sure, they’re low and shallow, but they’re perfect for items you don’t use every day. Just look at all the stuff that could be neatly tucked away, freeing up room elsewhere in your kitchen.
The Family Handyman says:
Installing below-cabinet drawers sounds like a tough job, requiring fussy planning, the skills of a cabinetmaker and child-size hands to work in that cramped space. But this project is amazingly easy. To simplify planning, we’ll show you three basic measurements that let you size these drawers to fit under any cabinet.
Even if you’ve never built or installed a drawer before, you can do it. This project is economical, too—you can build the drawers for a fraction of the price a cabinetmaker would charge.
