Since every home’s main activities center around the kitchen, it’s important to consider safety and convenience when redesigning or updating this space. Glide-Out™ shelving improves organization and makes it easier to access items such as dishes, pots and pans, cleaning supplies, and small appliances such as blenders, slow cookers, and toasters. They pull out the full depth of the cabinet, which improves lighting and makes it easier to see everything at a glance. They also make it easier to retrieve and replace items without bending and reaching, which avoids strain on the back and knees.
The pantry can easily become a catch-all for food items, small appliances, dry goods, and paper products. Whether the pantry is in a kitchen cabinet or has its own designated space, organization, access, and storage space are key to maintain usability. With custom glide-outs, items can be categorized or zoned so they won’t be hidden or lost anymore. Viewing and retrieving items quickly will assist seniors with food preparation and grocery shopping. Because Glide-Out™ shelves pull out, there isn’t a need for space to lift items in the back so more shelves can fit in a given vertical space.
There should be a place for every item in the bathroom, from toiletries and medication to bath towels and cleaning products. Glide-Out™ shelving in the linen closet or cabinets maximizes storage space and functionality. To utilize the space under the sink, glide-outs can be customized to fit around pipes. Seniors will be able to access whatever they need without bending over and reaching into the back of the cabinets.
