Home: Drawer Dividers

Before

After

Unless one has customized drawer dividers, the drawer that contains flatware never looks quite right.  We end up buying a utensil holder that is never the same size as the drawer, so the drawer just looks “undone.”  However, paying a carpenter to make customized drawer dividers seems over-the-top.

Luckily, I’ve found a kit that enables one to make customized drawer dividers, providing organized and tidy flatware drawers at a reasonable price.  They were quick and easy to install, requiring only a ruler and an Xacto or utility knife.  The whole process took less than two hours, and I’m thrilled with the results!

Here’s what I did:
·     Measured the drawer to be modified
·      Created a rough layout of what I wanted
·      Calculated how many dividers kits I needed and then purchased them
·      Marked where the adhesive mounts were to be installed
·      Installed the mounts
·      Scored the dividers with the utility knife and then snapped apart the pieces
·      Installed the dividers


It was such a simple process that I wish I know about these kits a long time ago.
