Make a Storage Plan

Step 1

Messy and disorganized kitchen cabinet.

Identify storage problems such as messy stacks of pot and pans, an out-of-the-way trash can or packaged foods in disarray. Then, take inventory of the things you have in the kitchen's work triangle of refrigerator, stove and sink. Decide which things you can relocate. For example, cookware is best kept near the stove and cleanup supplies near the sink. This helps you create a storage plan that suits your needs.

Step 2

Types of kitchen cabinet organizers.

Slide-out baskets are great for organizing pots and pans or packaged food items. Under-sink trash cans keep unappealing features hidden and still close at hand.

Step 3

Cabinet interior depicting width, depth and height.

Measure the cabinet's interior depth, width and height. Also check the clearance of cabinet doors, drawers and hinges. Then, check the dimensions of cabinet organizer to make sure it will fit.

Install Basket Organizers

Follow the installation instructions that come with your unique organizer.

Step 1

Finger pulling up on the basket-release trigger.

First, release the slides from the baskets by pulling up on the trigger.

Step 2

Pot inside of kitchen cabinet with measuring tape to check clearances.

Inside the cabinet, measure the height needed for the upper basket by placing your largest pot inside the cabinet, keeping in mind that the pot will need to clear the door opening when the basket slides out.

Step 3

Attaching slides with screws in a basket organizer.

Attach the bottom slides to support the bottom holes in the U-shape support bracket.

Step 4

Upper sliders at height measured from largest pot.

Attach the upper slides at the height you measured to complete the frame.

Step 5

Attach kitchen basket organizer frame to cabinet side.

Set the frame in the cabinet, opposite the hinges. The front of the slide should be about 1/4 inch from the edge of the face frame. Secure the unit with screws.

Step 6

Attaching rear mounting bracket with screws.

Attach the rear-mounting bracket to the back of the cabinet.

Step 7

Placing organizing basket onto the slides.

Return the baskets to the slides and check performance.

Install a Slide-Out Trash Can

Step 1

Check slides before attaching to cabinetry.

Place the frame inside the cabinet. Check that it slides freely and that the door closes. If so, secure the unit with screws.

Step 2

Under-cabinet trashcan organizer frame with pieces assembled.

Install the basket, uprights and handle with screws.

Step 3

Under-cabinet slide out trashcan installed with can in place.

Insert the trash can and check that it slides smoothly.

Install a Door-Mount Trash Can

Step 1

Removing hinges from kitchen cabinet door in advance of instaling a door mount trashcan.

Remove the cabinet door and hinges.

Step 2

Screwing L-brackets to the trashcan frame.

Secure the L-brackets to the slides, then loosely attach the L-brackets to the door brackets.

Step 3

Spacers for door-mount trash can frame.

Align the door brackets with the thickest part of the door so the screws won’t pierce the cabinet front. Use spacers (shown) if needed.

Step 4

Double-sided tape on the door side of the trashcan frame.

Close the frame and place double-sided tape on the brackets.

Step 5

Aligning the cabinet door of the slide-out trashcan.

Align the cabinet door with the upper drawer, if present, and adjacent cabinet doors. Double-check the alignment with a level. Press firmly onto the tape to ensure a proper fit.

Good to Know

The brackets are designed for minor adjustments if needed.
