How to Measure For Pull-Out Shelves

Pull-Out Shelves are a convenient way to organize cabinets in rooms such as kitchens, pantries and closets. By maximizing the available space within the cabinet, Pull-Out shelves increase storage capacity.

How to Measure for Pull-Out Shelves

Measuring for the correct pilaster size and drawer box width for Pull-Out Shelves can be confusing and mistakes can be costly.

To streamline this process and achieve accurate sizing, Keystone Wood Specialties has developed a Pull-Out Shelves Planning Tool.
(This planning tool is designed for use with undermount drawer slides.)

  • This planning tool includes measurements for using a drawer box with 1/2″ thick drawer sides or 5/8″ thick sides.
  • You can quickly see the amount of drawer side clearance you’ll have based on the size of the pilaster you want to use.
  • The notches on the side represent the drawer track depths we offer, and will help you install the pilasters the correct distance apart.
  • By helping you determine your pilaster size and drawer clearance measurements, you will have the information needed to accurately calculate the width of the drawer box you need to order.
