Adding New Hardware and Features to Existing Cabinets

Can I add features like pull-out drawers and a lazy susan to my existing older cabinets? -Peggy

Hi Peggy,

Many of the new cabinet features and hardware now available – like lazy susans, pull out shelves, easy close doors and drawers, and pull out trash bins – can be added to your existing cabinets. Some may need to be modified or custom made to fit the cabinets, but if you’re on a tight budget, you can retrofit many of the items yourself.

Most home centers carry some cabinet storage solutions, but, my favorite place to shop is on the Rev-A-Shelf website. They have a lot of unique items for kitchen cabinets, as well as bath vanities and even closet storage.

Another option is to check your local Home Depot store for available products or put in a special order through their catalogs.

Good luck with your project,

  1. Hi,
    I have very old kitchen cabinets that the hinges have been painted over. Is there an easy way to remove the paint so I can remove the hardware easier?
