Fitted Kitchens - Pull-Out Kitchen Pantry

Most of the kitchens do have space that’s deep yet not wide enough and this is when the pull out units come to rescue. For instance, a space between the kitchen counter and the refrigerator can be used for building a pull-out pantry. As the things stored will be easily viewable from both sides as well as make the accessibility easy. Hence, as per the space availability, one could customize the unit by adding fitted spice racks, baskets for fruits and vegetables, wine holders and so on.
