Under the Sink

Make use of space around your pipes with solutions that maximize your storage capacity.

What is a Riser Glide-Out?

Riser Glide-Outs are small, narrow units designed to be used in combination with a lower, full-size Glide-Out. Together, the two-tiered unit takes full advantage of lost cabinet space due to obstructions, such as water and drainpipes. Risers are most commonly used in bathrooms and under kitchen sinks.

  • Why would I need a Riser Glide-Out?
    We typically use risers underneath the sink for customized storage solutions built around obstructions like water pipes, drainpipes, and more. No more awkward storage bins or cleaning supplies tucked in hard-to-reach places.
  • Do I need a lot of free space underneath my sink?
    During your free consultation, a ShelfGenie designer will take a close look at your space and generate a 3D rendering of solutions that will work for your unique needs and the dimensions of your existing cabinetry. We have a variety of different layouts and customization options, developed and proven over thousands of installations in homes like yours.
  • What are Riser Glide-Outs made of?
    Riser boards, which attach the two tiers of storage, are ply and stained to match the selected Riser package. Our Basic and Classic Glide-Outs are made of Baltic Birch Ply, while our Designer Glide-Outs are made of stained or painted hardwood with dovetail joinery and a melamine bottom face.
  • Will my cleaning or beauty products tip over in the Glide-Out shelves?
    Our Glide-Out boxes are available in multiple heights to support even your tallest, bulkiest items. During your free in-home consultation, a ShelfGenie Designer will recommend the best Glide-Out options for your needs, including what you plan to store under your sink.

Types of Bathroom Risers

  • Side Risers
    This design features riser boards on the left or right, connecting the riser box to the Glide-Out shelf below, avoiding obstructions like water and drain pipes.
  • Front Riser
    This design features riser boards on both sides and a front riser box. This option is designed to work around large under-sink obstructions like disposals.
  • Independent Riser
    This design uses rails mounted to the side board. Each shelf pulls independently from the bottom Glide-Out shelving.
“ShelfGenie installed several slide-out shelves in our kitchen and bathroom. We are thrilled with the result. We recently moved from a large home to a much smaller condo and needed to make efficient use of all the spaces. ShelfGenie has doubled the usable shelf space in our kitchen and bathroom. The quality of the sliding shelves is exceptional. The designer created a plan based on our needs. He had great ideas and came up with improvements we didn't know were possible. The installers were very professional and worked with minimum disruption to our condo. We are very happy with the end result and proudly show off our new shelves to our guests.”
