Homeowner’s may not know about numerous convenient add-ons that can be installed to update their kitchen.

As a kitchen cabinet professional, you probably know most of them, but do you know them all?

At Kitchen Tune-Up, we have identified six quick and inexpensive ways to make a big change and maximize the homeowner’s space. These readily available, easy-to-install products can not only add value for the customer, but additional profits for cabinet profressionals.

In no particular order, they include:

1. Roll-Out Trays -- Homeowners can get their hands on what they need fast with roll-out trays. There is no need for them to get on their hands and knees to reach into the back of a cabinet. Instead, by putting items on a roll-out shelf, they can have items like pots, pans and lids organized and at their fingertips.
 
2. Half-Moon Shelves --  If space is limited and there isn’t enough room for a Lazy Susan in a corner, you can still store canned goods – or anything – and utilize that empty space with a pull-out half-moon shelf. It's another great way to maximize space and convenience.

3. Tip-Out Trays -- Many homeowners have false panels under their sink. This "wasted space" is an excellent area for tip-out trays. Using them creates a great hiding place for unattractive cleaning items like sponges and other sink-area clutter.

4. Custom Drawer Dividers & Accessories -- Using custom drawer dividers and accessories is a great way to organize silverware, cooking utensils, spices and just about anything else.

5. Roll-Out Waste Baskets -- Easy roll-out waste baskets make removing garbage from the kitchen a breeze.

6. Roll-Out Recycling Centers -- Installing a recycling center is a fast and easy way to separate garbage and recyclables.
