Choosing Kitchen Cabinet Accessories

Once you have made the basic decisions about your new kitchen cabinet purchase, you can begin to think about the extras that you'd like to have. Do you want a way to display a collection of beautifully colored plates? Do you drink wine every day and need special storage for the many bottles and glasses? A wide range of special accessories are available to customize kitchen cabinets. Lowe's is happy to provide this information as a service to you.


When you are selecting your kitchen cabinets and deciding on their layout, think about special storage and display needs you might have. Consult your Lowe's cabinet specialist to learn about specific options that are available for the cabinets you have chosen. Some options can be added after the cabinets are installed, but others must be included in the original cabinet order. Most companies have some version of these special items:

For the Upper Cabinets and Countertops

  •   • Pull-down spice rack that fits underneath the upper cabinets to save space.

  •   • Microwave shelf that allows you to heat up leftovers and pop popcorn without giving up valuable counter space. (Note that this is not the same thing as an over-the-range microwave, which includes an integrated venting fan.

  •   • Pegs or hooks for hanging mugs and teacups.

  •   • Appliance garage to keep blenders, toasters and other once-in-a-while items hidden from view.

  •   • Hanging cookbook rack to keep food spills off your recipes and give you more work area.

  •   • Pull-down message centre to make family communication easier.

For the Lower Cabinets and Sink Area

Make trash and recycling bins easy to empty.

Use roll-out baskets to keep small items handy.

  •   • Roll-out baskets in place of low and narrow cabinets for more efficient use of the entire space.

  •   • Pull-out waste and recycling containers keep trash hidden, make emptying easier and keep children and pets out of the garbage.

  •   • Cutting board with integrated knife storage that pulls out like a drawer.

  •   • Pull-out ironing board that hides away for space saving.

Storage for Special Items

  •   • Integrated baskets for potatoes, onions and other produce.

  •   • Wine rack or cubby for storing bottles on their sides.

  •   • Under-cabinet racks for storing wine glasses and stemware.

  •   • Lazy Susan, allowing you to make the most of corner space.

A Lazy Susan makes a corner cabinet more accessible.

Swing-open pantry doors make full use of hard-to-reach space in the back of low cabinets.

  •   • Swing-out pantry racks that make it easier to reach items stored in the back of the cabinet.

  •   • Pull-out storage sized to hold 2-liter bottles.

  •   • Wide, shallow drawers for storing table linens.

  •   • Flip-down sink tray for storing sponges.

Store extra sponges in a flip-down tray to keep the sink area neat.

Make the most of space around pipes under the sink with shelves that can adjust to any configuration.

Stack small items in the corner to keep them handy for cooking.

Display Features

Glass-front doors with mullions give the kitchen an open feel.

Cabinet accessories don't have to be purely functional. Some decorative touches bring style to your kitchen.

  •   • Glass-front doors, with or without mullions that divide them into smaller panes. These are complemented by cabinet interiors that are finished the same way as the exteriors.

  •   • Plate holders that store dishware on display, either face-front or stored sideways on edge.

  •   • Valence to bridge the space over the sink.

  •   • Down-lit, glass display shelves for decorative items.

  •   • Panels for the appliances and the ends of cabinets that match the cabinet doors.

  •   • Faux furniture legs and feet for cabinets to make them look more like free-standing items than standard built-ins.

  •   • Spacers, plinth blocks and rosettes for decorative effect.
