We’ll show you how to make your kitchen work better by installing cabinet organizers.
First identify storage problems. Inventory your stuff so you’ll know exactly what to get, then make a storage plan. Cookware might work best near the stove, and cleanup near the sink.
Next, measure your cabinet’s interior depth, width and height. Also check clearance of drawers, doors and hinges.
Use this info to check the dimensions on the packages.
There are options for almost every need. We’ll show you how to install a basket organizer and pull out trash can.
For the basket organizer, first release the slides from the baskets by pulling up on the trigger.
Measure the height needed for the upper basket by placing your largest pot inside the cabinet.
Then attach the bottom slides to the bottom holes in the U-shaped support bracket. Attach the upper slides at the height you measured and the frame is done.
Next, set the frame inside against the cabinet frame opposite the hinges. The front of the slide should be about ¼-in from edge of the face frame. Secure it with screws. Attach the bottom with screws too.
Now attach the rear-mounting bracket to the back of the cabinet. And reattach the baskets on the slides.
A pullout trash can is helpful too. The installation is a little different but just as easy.
First, place the frame inside the cabinet and check that it slides freely and the door closes, then secure it with screws.
Install the basket, uprights and handle. Pop in the trash can and check that it slides smoothly.
For easier access, optional hardware is available to mount the door to the frame. Start by removing your cabinet door and hinges.
Secure the L-brackets to the slides, and loosely attach the door brackets to the L-brackets. Make sure the door brackets line up with the thick part of the door so the screws won’t pierce the fronts. Use spacers if needed.
Close the frame and apply double sided tape to the brackets.
Line up the door with the upper drawer and adjacent doors, and press firmly onto the tape. Drive screws through the bracket. The brackets are designed to allow for minor adjustments if needed.
And it’s done!
A little planning and easy-to-install cabinet organizers will help make your kitchen more functional and orderly.
