Store glasses in base cabinet drawers?

This is my first post. Great site; very helpful community here!

I am putting in Ikea kitchen cabinets and am really sold on having drawers or pullouts versus doors/fixed shelves. ( I have only a few upper cabs. planned.)

Is there anyone who is storing glasses in drawers? If so, are specific widths preferable or more efficient for storage over others? At Ikea I was recommended to use a 15" drawer for glasses. The possibilities for me are 15, 18, or 30" drawers.

I am thinking of using rationelle dividers for corraling glasses.

Re: Store glasses in base cabinet drawers?


I don't have glasses in drawers, but I think that you'd be happiest with the wider drawers for as much storage as you can. The wider drawers allow you to store the widest variety of things. For instance, you'll get alot more into 1 30" drawer than 2 15", especially if you can use the dividers to separate your space.

I do have plates and bowls in the drawers, and love it, so I imagine glasses would be equally great.

Hi shack, and welcome!

At the bottom of this page is a link to a thread about glasses in drawers that has a great picture of this. I'll put the link here too for convenience: Glasses in drawers?

Best wishes,
