What Houzz contributors are saying:
Pull it outThese cupboards might look standard from the outside, but inside they’ve been fitted with pull-out wire racks. These offer a functional but still good-looking alternative to wooden shelving, and are perfect if you want to know exactly where you put your peanut butter.With six baskets in each cupboard, this design makes the most of the available space, and is ideal for packets and jars.
Final points to considerSometimes the products offered in showrooms look amazing but please do check the warranties, weight capacities and materials. Even the expensive mechanisms may fall short of expectations once you delve into the details. DIY installation can be a good way to save money and still give you a quality product if a kitchen renovation is not on the cards any time soon.

Organise with wire racksDon’t assume you have to go for conventional wood or laminated shelving. This cupboard is full of neat, utilitarian pull-out wire racks that keep packets, jars and other groceries in order. There are lots of different options for similar wire mechanisms that fit standard-width cupboards and drawers, so investigate which options work for you.In general, when planning storage, work out how much space you’ll need for food, crockery, cutlery, saucepans and so on – also think about the number of people in your home. You may need more space than you think, especially if your family is growing.
