Slimline pull-out spice rack

Maximise the gap next to your fridge with this clever storage solution.





The project


I got the idea to use the space next to my fridge in this way from small cabinets that pull out in spaces that are otherwise unusable. This storage solution is really handy and tucks away seamlessly when not in use. 




There are no wheels at the bottom. Four runners are connected between the thicker slats and the end panel of the kitchen to hold the frame of the unit upright.

More slimline spice racks


Thrilled to find this great idea, Workshop member keithT created his own pull out spice rack and decided not to glue the dowel rails so they are able to flex for any bottles that are slightly wider than the space.




Workshop member Pasan created a similar spice rack and has found it very useful.




Workshop member jessica_roesel followed the step-by-step instructions to create her own spice rack and had fun building it herself.




Inspired by this project, Workshop member Prof built a similar pull out storage spice rack on wheels.




Kind of a Big Deal

@DIYology  Good idea using that wasted space between fridges. 


I might re look at my spare space and see if i have  enough room to put in a thin kitchen custom bin and recycling bin todate a sensable solution has  eluded me and just using free standing bin for 20 years with is ok.

Hi @Benskimo,


If you do build this yourself, check out How to build a slimline spice rack as I've replicated the design as best I could.


Sing out if you need any assistance.
