A roll-out shelf
, also known as pull-out shelf
or slide-out shelf
is a shelf
that extends outwards in order to reach the contents stored in the back of a cupboard
more easily. Most modern gourmet kitchens are fitted with roll out shelves instead of traditional shelves for convenience and additional storage space.
Roll-out shelves can be typically found in: kitchen cabinets, pantries, bathroom cabinets/vanities, offices, and garages.
Most people do not use the back of their cabinets because it can be difficult to store and find items. A roll-out shelf eliminates this problem and makes that space useful again.
