Enhancing storage in deep drawers

Be the first

What is the issue?
Deep drawers are typically ineffective. If they are filled, smaller items tend to get lost in the bottom and it is at best, a digging exercise to find anything. Consequently, they are rarely filled and do not offer efficient space or storage utilisation.

Why address this?
Optimising storage makes it easier to find just what you want, when you need it. It allows many additional items to be viable aboard and makes life that bit more relaxed.

How to address this?
Implement an elevated drawer tray in deep drawers to segment the storage into layers. This may be installed as a slider as illustrated above or as a lift out as presented below.
