If you are updating your bathroom or retrofitting new cabinetry, deciding on the right drawer slide can be daunting. With so many options to out there; mount, extension type, slide length, limits on weight, and finishes, how do you know which one to choose for your project? In this post we will discuss one of the most popular, bottom mount.
Just as they sound, these slides attach to the bottom of the drawer. This is a nice option if you prefer slides that are not visible when the drawer opens. They also work well with weight in the drawer because they nicely support the bottom.
They can cost a little more because they are very specific. The drawer box must match the specifications of the bottom mount exactly, or the drawer will not slide properly. Therefore, the bottom or undermount drawer slide is a great option when it comes to custom-built drawers.
Why Choose These?
The mounting position allows you to make drawers nearly the full width of the drawer opening—minus 1⁄8 ” on each side, netting more storage space than with other slides.
Hide the slides and leave more space for storage. Suitable for large containers, drawers, wardrobes, wine cabinets, under-stair storage cabinets, etc.
