How To Add A Pull Out Spice Rack By The Stove

In this post we’ll cover how spice rack pull outs can be ideal for a cabinet next to the stove as well as some of the nuances to know before you add one to your cabinetry.

One of the most popular items to add to your kitchen is a spice rack pull out organizer. These cool pull outs typically come as a complete product which includes a maple wood frame, under-mount right and left slides, cabinet door mounting brackets and all hardware needed to install the unit.

Yes, these are a bit more technical for the novice, but by no means do you need to be a professional to add a spice rack to your cabinet. It all comes down to the dimensions of the existing cabinet you have. There are minimum cabinet openings that work with these pull out spice racks.

These types of pull out organizers will retrofit into existing cabinetry. So, you don’t necessarily need to be in the middle of a remodel or new build, although they can work in that instance as well.

There are also spice rack pull out “fillers”. What’s the difference between a filler organizer and a standard pull out organizer? The version we are discussing in this post will fit inside the cabinet and spice rack fillers would fit in-between or get sandwiched between two separate cabinets.

What Size Pull Out Spice Rack Will Work

This is the part that trips people up. The width, depth and height of the spice rack pull out will need to work with your cabinet. 

Spice rack pull outs will usually need a full height base cabinet. There are some spice rack pull outs on the market that can work in a cabinet with drawer above though.

Most of the time, no drawer can be above as you need the room of the entire cabinet from bottom to top (full height).

Spice rack pull outs can range in widths of 6″, 8-3/4″, 11-3/4″ and 14-3/4″. Keep in mind, this is the actual physical width of the product out of the box. The cabinet opening will need to be able to accommodate that width.

What Size Base Cabinet Do I Need

To make these spice rack pull out organizers fit, you will need a full height base cabinet with a 9″, 12″, 15″ or an 18″ width.

That cabinet width will simply depend on the actual physical dimension of the spice rack pull out you end of choosing.

For example: if you have an 11-3/4″ spice rack pull out, you will need a minimum cabinet opening width of 12″. This will work in a standard base cabinet 15 (or B15).

Most cabinet manufacturers will have standard widths they use for base cabinets. Spice rack pull outs will most likely work within those ranges. You may run into frameless or European style cabinets or inset cabinetry. Regardless, it’s important to cross check width, height and depth of both the organizer and the cabinet.

Where Else Would A Pull Out Spice Rack Go

They don’t necessarily have to always go right next to the side of the stove. This is the cool part about these pull out organizers.

Although we call them “spice rack” pull outs, they can really be used wherever more organization is needed.

Keeping the kitchen countertop clutter free is on the mind of many homeowners, so having a place to conveniently store go-to items is really beneficial.

Depending on the size of the pull out, they can be ideal for just about anything. 

The idea is to get functionality from a space you are in everyday.

Products like trash pull outs, pot and pan pull outs, k-cup drawer organizers or even wall cabinet organizers can have a subtle, yet big impact on the way we use our kitchen spaces.

How to Install a Pull Out Spice Rack

This is the fun part. No really, think how good you’ll feel after accomplishing this installation. Since this is inside the cabinet, there is not much difference if this is installed next to a stove or in another cabinet in the kitchen.

The spice rack pull out products we have listed below will come as a complete unit.

By complete, we mean everything is included within the box. The spice rack maple wood frame. The slide system that mounts to the cabinet floor. The paper template for drilling. The mounting hardware for the slides and the components to mount your cabinet door the the unit.

Side-To-Side Movement

If the cabinet size and the spice rack pull out are not a snug fit, you may get some “play” in the side-to-side movement of the spice rack.

To combat this, try using the rub bushing kit or spacer kit provided. These can mount on the sides of the cabinet frame and help the pull out from that type of movement.
