Materials: Akurum high cabinet, Pax Komplement drawers
Description: When we renovated the kitchen, we chose this high cabinet from Ikea because it’s wide enough for the microwave but for storage it is terrible. It is too deep and has two big drawers which are again too deep. If you put a can in a drawer you can only see the top of the can! I like organizing but I wasn’t about to label all the top of my cans!!!
The solution? Ikea’s drawers for the Pax wardrobe system. We bought two big ones and my boyfriend cut them to fit the pantry. Voila! Nice sliding, solid wood drawers and not too high.
