Did the title give it away?? Our trash can in no longer taking up room on the kitchen floor. That’s right we have a Cabinet Pull Out Trash Can. HAY!!!

We have had this trash can installed for over a week and we are loving loving this thing. The only CON we have with it is that it is smaller than our old trash can. So if you have room I would suggest having the double, one for trash and one for recycling. We decided to use the Knape & Vogt In Cabinet Pull Out Trash Can because it fit our space perfectly.

Before I could install the trash can, I needed to fix the cabinet because the base needed to be raised so the trash would be pulled-out. Sorry if that does not make sense to anyone…

Cabinet base

I decided to reuse the wood from when we added the dishwasher to the kitchen cabinet. And this is what I came up with.

I then filled the gaps in with spackling paste, sanded the cabinet, and caulked the seams.

Then I primed and painted the cabinet to give it a finished look. We will be adding a drawer and cabinet door to the cabinet.

Now I could install the trash can pull-out.

The first thing I did was find the placement of the slider/pull-out.

Checking Placement of Trash Can

After finding the placement, I marked the screw holes and drilled a hole using the smallest drill bit.

Then I screwed the slider/pull-out into place, using the pre-drilled holes.

Next I attached the cage that holds the trash can.

After placing the trash can into the cage, we have a trash can pull-out!!

This was really easy to install and we are loving it. The trash can kit cost less than $50. If you would like to save money, you could also build a trash can pull-out, here is a great tutorial. Anyone wishing they had one of these?
