Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Who is ShelfGenie?

  • What is the ShelfGenie process?
    Each client receives a FREE in-home consultation with one of our trained Designers. When a client makes a purchase, one of our company-certified Installers calls within 48 hours to schedule a field measurement. Four to six weeks after the field measurement, the same Installer contacts the client to arrange a convenient installation date and time. 98% of our installations take less than a day because we do most of the finish work before we get to the house. ShelfGenie handles each step of the design and install process.
  • Are your products for the kitchen only?
    While ShelfGenie started in the kitchen, we can make any space more accessible with our proprietary solutions designed to fit your unique lifestyle. We can create a custom solution for your bathroom, home office, basement, entertainment center, laundry room, workshop, craft room and garage that will dramatically increase your organization and accessible storage space.
  • How can the shelves close around plumbing and gas lines?
    ShelfGenie will custom-design a shelving solution for your spaces under the sink and stove top, providing full clearance that works around pipes while maximizing storage capability in these spaces.
  • What makes the glide-out classic finish so superior?
    Our proprietary Kerwin Coating™ is an ultraviolet cured top-coat that is harder than catalyzed acrylics and other conventional flat line finishes ensuring our Glide-Outs look as good in 20 years as the day they were installed. We subject our Kerwin Coating to extensive quality assurance testing. Although your Glide-Outs won’t ever experience these extreme conditions, we’ve ensured that they will stand up to most anything you can throw at them. Our tests include:

    Temperature Check
    No cracking after one hour at 158˚ F. No cracking after one hour at -4˚ F.

    Adhesion Test
    Using several standardized tests for the adhesion of the coating, the results showed no significant flaking or detachment from the product.

    Chemical Test
    None of the following chemicals had any effect on our drawer panels after 24 hours: Vinegar, Lemon Juice, Orange Juice, Ketchup, Coffee, Olive Oil or 100% Alcohol.
  • What is a stile and why do you remove it?
    The stile is the vertical bar between cabinet doors. The doors close against the stile, acting as a “backstop” for the doors. A stile is not structural, and therefore can be removed. With a stile in place, you are limited to the size of the items you can place in your cabinets, and accessibility is much more difficult. ShelfGenie can remove your center stile and install wider Glide-Outs to maximize the available storage space in your cabinets.
  • What is the smallest cabinet you can install glide-outs in?
    We work with all different sized cabinets. Schedule your free consultation today.
  • How long can i expect installation to take?
    Our Installers can install everything in your home in one day, and have everything ready to use.
  • Can I receive financing for ShelfGenie products?
    YES! All of our franchisees offer financing options in their market. Ask your ShelfGenie Designer for more information and access to apply for financing.
