We'll discuss the convenience of Sliding Shelves, how they are made, the different types available, and the materials used in their manufacture.
Sliding Shelves are also known as Pull Out Shelves, Roll Out Shelves, and Roll Out Trays (they're all the same thing.) In kitchen cabinets and pantries, Sliding Shelves are fairly common. (Although not common enough to suit our tastes.)
And talk about convenient... The shelf slides out to you making it very easy to see what is stored there, and just as easy to store new things. When you're done, simply slide the shelf back into place. Organizing your storage has never been easier.
But you may have a Pull Out Shelf in other rooms of the house, too. Depending on the room, you might find a Roll Out Shelf in furniture, pull out keyboard trays in desks, Sliding Storage in bathroom vanities, or pull out CD and pull out DVD trays in entertainment centers. The materials used would depend on where the Sliding Shelf is found and whether the purpose is for appearance or simply utilitarian.
Whether it's a kitchen shelf, pantry shelf, or in another application, You'll wonder why you haven't enjoyed the convenience of these wonderful storage organizers before. Think of getting items on your bottom kitchen shelf, clear in the back, without getting down on your hands and knees and removing everything in the way first. Just pull out the shelf, get what you need, and slide the shelf back. WOW. How easy is that ?
Click on 'Wood Selection' near the top right of this page to see a few of the different wood types used in the manufacture of Sliding Shelves. Also discussed is the reasoning behind using each of the different types.
Click on 'GLIDES' near to top right of this page to see the different Glide types used. The glides impact how far the Sliding Shelf pulls out and when to specify each type.
Click on 'Applications' to see some photos and drawings of a Slide out Shelf, Pull Out Shelf, and Roll Out Shelf in use. Some of the different styles, types, and applications are also shown.
In particular there are a couple of Pantry Shelf photos that show how to maximize your Pantry Storage and get the most use from each of your Pantry Shelves by turning them into Pull-Out Shelves. You might even be able to squeeze in another Pull Out Pantry Shelf and still enjoy the convenience of reaching anything on the Pull Out Shelf easily. Take a look at this pantry with Sliding Shelves.
