The age old kitchen storage question,
which one is really best?
Pull out shelves
or deep drawer storage?
Which one is more affordable?
Which is more practical?
To be completely honest we sell sliding shelves so we
are of course biased but we are really trying to be fair and honest with
the benefits of pull out shelves and those of deep drawer storage
Pull-out sliding shelves or deep drawer storage?
There are advantages and disadvantages to both pull out shelves and to deep drawers. Deep
drawer storage allows access to your items in one motion, simply pull out the
drawer. Pull out shelves require you to first open the cabinet door and then
pull out the shelf. Deep drawers tend to be more confining and it can be harder to
find items when looking down at the top of them. Short sided pull out shelves
items such as bowls to hang out over the side and regain some of the space that
is lost due to the drawer sides and slides. Deep drawer storage means new
cabinets while pull out shelves can be custom made to fit your existing kitchen
and bathroom cabinets. One of
the main advantages of pull out shelves is that they can be easily installed
into almost all cabinets regardless of how old the cabinet is. They even work
great in metal cabinets, just use nuts and bolts instead of screws to secure the
pullouts. People often add pull
out shelves to new cabinet orders as they find it more cost effective than
ordering the cabinets with the pullout shelving installed. Many of the on line
pull out shelf companies
build a product that is not only superior to the ones that many cabinet
manufactures offer you can also save $50 to $100 or more per shelf in many cases
over what you would pay if you ordered pull out shelves with new cabinets

In case you are wondering if we have a spelling problem
The domain Shelf That Slides was started by a copy cat competitor that
thought it would be easier to try and copy our name than our quality. I
guess they figured that enough people would type in shelf that slides
instead of shelves that slide and that they would get an increase in
sales. Of course this is the same company that thought it was OK to take
pictures from our website when they started in business. Anyway of
course it did not work for them and they let the name expire but
meanwhile they were paying to advertise the site. We thought it was
only fair that we pick up the site and let them advertise for us so we
added Shelf That Slides to our list of websites.
