Make the Most of Your Space

A typical kitchen cabinet is 22 inches deep – that’s a terrific amount of storage, but when so much of the space is difficult to access, it becomes either a terrific waste of space or an accumulation of junk. The solution is a shelf inside that space that slides out to display its contents. Easy to access, easy to clean, easy to de-clutter and keep tidy. And very affordable to install. Rev-A-Shelf means storage solutions for your kitchen and other home cabinets. They are the leading USA innovator of residential cabinet storage and organizational products, and we are proud to offer their solutions here in the Toronto area. Sliding waste and recycle bins, base cabinet pull outs, Lazy Susans and blind corner pull outs are some of the clever devices they have designed to improve the storage capacity and accessibility of your kitchen.

Benjamin Franklin is credited with coining the phrase “a place for everything, everything in its place”. This concept is the cornerstone of most any organizational system ever developed. In practical terms, it means that every small appliance in the kitchen should have a home to which it is tidily returned when not in use; every type and size of box, bag and can of food should have a “usual” location so family members don’t need to fling open all the cupboards and rummage in every drawer to see if you’re out of cereal.

The system breaks down quickly when the “place” for something is hard to reach. If putting away the big box of cereal means moving the cans of peas out of the way and sliding the cookies over, the cereal won’t end up back in its proper place very often. And the cookies will be shoved to the back of the cupboard to go stale. If the bread-maker’s “place” is only accessible when you drag a chair over to the top cupboard and climb, you may not bake bread as often as you’d like.

One of the fundamental rules for organizing your home is simply to find a place for everything that is both logical and accessible. Logical means that pots and pans go near the stove, plates and bowls near the dishwasher. Accessible means that pots should not be piled on top of pans and shoved into the very back of a corner cupboard. If you have to kneel and rummage to find the frying pan, we have a better way: a sliding shelf allows you to use all of the available space to the full depth of the cabinet without struggling to access things in the back. Having a pantry in your kitchen is a huge plus for storage. It gives you lots of room for storing the things your family needs every day, as well as the lesser-used items (usually on the highest or lowest shelves). But a deep pantry shelf can also be a place where canned goods and boxes of tea bags go to hide. There is an ebb and flow of supplies on a shelf that pushes infrequently used items to the deep dark recesses of a cabinet. A pullout pantry, on the other hand, brings all of those items out in plain view and within easy reach – great for anyone who has trouble bending down far enough to reach all the way back into a lower shelf space as well. Our shelves are available from 8 to 39 inches wide and in varying heights to accommodate all of your pantry items.

Bring everything out into the light on a smooth gliding shelf!

Your family’s pantry has more storage capacity than you realize. So do your kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets. The secret to accessing this space is in efficient organization, and making the best use of the hard to reach places in your current configuration of home storage.
