Converting kitchen island cupboards to drawers

Postby Magsme » Fri Jun 16, 2023 7:27 am

Hi All,

This is my island pantry. It's shelves, disorganised and very hard to reach anything in the back without pulling almost everything out.

I want to convert it to pull out drawers instead.

I can't change the cupboard faces as it currently matches the whole kitchen, and as much as I'd love to redo the whole kitchen, I can't afford it.

So I'm looking for some simple internal solutions.

The centre of each cupboard has a supporting pillar in the front. It doesn't go all the way in the middle, so at the moment there would be no way to attach a drawer slider on each section.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi magsme,
You will have to fit a central divider and then you will be able to instal wire pullout trays - have a look at Hafeli to pick something of around the right size.
