October 31, 2008, Newsletter Issue #24: Roll-Out Shelves Prevent Back Strain in the Kitchen

Tip of the Week

The amount of ideas for customizing your cabinets in the kitchen are virtually endless, especially when you consider that many of them can be used in a variety of spaces and come in a variety of sizes. Pull-out shelves are quite popular among those who are currently remodeling their kitchen.

How many times have you wished you could reach all your bake ware without getting on your hands and knees, straining your back or digging through a deep space for something you know is hiding in the back? If you have this problem, talk to your kitchen designer about it and ask about options. Roll-out shelves operate like drawers but store a lot of items in one place. They work especially great for bake ware and cookware. When opened you can see all contents at once.

Another option great for baking is a fold-down mixer shelf, which can be built into your new kitchen cabinets. This is a spring-loaded shelf that swings up and out of a base cabinet then back down and in again. It is a great option for heavy items. If you don't have space for a walk-in pantry -- and many kitchens don't -- there are other ways you can conveniently store pantry items in built-in pantry units. These can be either slide-out or fold-out units and can be placed in narrow spaces that are often overlooked when it comes to custom-made kitchen cabinets.
