How can spices make your food taste so good but leave such a bad taste in your Kitchen Cabinet Deals mouth when it comes to organizing all of them? I’ve seen spice racks overtaking every inch of wall space or countertop. I’ve seen spice bottles spilling out of cabinets and pantries. But I’ve also seen out-of-control spices get expertly corralled with a smart solution: the pullout spice rack. These racks fit right into your cabinetry and can be customized so you have enough space to keep all your Kitchen Cabinet Deals spices in line, from anise to za’atar. Here’s how to get a pullout spice rack in your own kitchen. "Project: Adding a pullout spice rack.
Who to hire: By far the easiest and best way to incorporate pullout spice shelves in your kitchen is to include them in a new cabinetry project. The advantages of this approach are many, but the primary benefit is that it makes the most efficient use of space and you can design your Kitchen Cabinet Deals shelves to be located where you want them.
If new kitchen cabinets aren’t in your plans, you can hire a carpenter to modify an existing wall cabinet or filler panel to accommodate a new pullout shelf. Filler panels are leftover spaces usually at the end or sometimes between cabinetry units. It’s not possible to retrofit cabinets to accommodate a sandwiched-type pullout shelf without replacing all the cabinets, so the location possibilities for a Kitchen Cabinet Deals retrofit are much more limited.
Architectural details: Many homeowners opt to add two 3- or 6-inch pullout spice shelves in the base cabinetry surrounding the cooking area or on opposite sides of a hood. Because of the symmetry and their narrow configuration, they are already columnar in shape. Most cabinet manufacturers offer an array of decorative architectural details for the face, such as with the column shown here, made by Dura Supreme Cabinetry. Other options include turned posts or pilasters, or a filler overlay that matches the rest of the cabinetry. Architectural detailing adds definition and visual interest and often includes a Kitchen Cabinet Deals routed-out finger pull so the shelf is easy to pull out and doesn’t require pull hardware.
In this kitchen designer Shannon Poe cleverly tucked a pullout spice shelf behind an architectural corbel, which also functions as the shelf’s handle. Poe says one of the goals for this project was to maximize space efficiency, so she added a pair of spice racks integrated into the pillars of the hood design.Dura Supreme Cabinetry2Sizes and expectations: Poe explains, “When I plan for spices in any of my kitchen projects, I always make sure to ask my client what kinds of spices and sizes of jars they use. I want to be sure that Kitchen Cabinet Deals are aware of how their new spice rack will work for them. Not all spice racks can accommodate large jars of minced onion or a tall bottle of oil. It’s important for me to be sure that we have the right size and amount of space for all different varieties.”
Location: One concern that is brought up repeatedly when pullout racks Kitchen Cabinet Deals are located near the cooking area is whether the quality of the spices is diminished because of their proximity to heat and humidity.
Similarly, a pullout shelf integrated into a pillar flanking a hood would need to be several inches away from the cooking surface, as in this example."
