Storing Glasses in a Drawer

My last blog discussed options for storing dinner plates. Linda from the blog Lime in the Coconut commented that she stored her glasses in a drawer. I wanted to share two tear sheet photos I have showing glasses stored in a drawer.

There are several reasons that come to mind why a person would want to store glasses in a drawer instead of an upper cabinet.

1. No upper cabinets. One client who was building a home in the mountains of Colorado wanted a large window in his bar as the view was magnificent. This particular bar was two parallel counters; one where guests would sit facing the window with the view and the other counter was under the window. This left no upper cabinets or upper racks to store glasses without interferring with the view. The solution was to put the bar glasses in drawers under the counters.

2. Handicapped people. A person in a wheel chair or with shoulder problems would have easy access to glasses stored in a drawer.

3. Dwarfs and shorter people. Dwarf people (4'10" and under) are unable to reach for a glass in an upper cabinet in the common kitchen. Some people who are relatively short in height also have a difficult time reaching for a glass in an upper cabinets. In both cases, drawer storage for glasses and other items is a perfect solution.

4. Children. Storing plastic cups for children to use in a drawer allows the child to get his or her own cup and if old enough, they can fill it from the refrigerator door or water dispenser on their own.

May your day be filled with Blessings. ...susan
Warning: If you store glasses in a drawer and you have children in your home or children are frequent visitors to your home, make sure you have a child safety latch on your drawer.

Hi Susan! Yep...I'm a glass storer! It all started with 4 kidlets, and I would always store plastic glasses and bowls in the drawers so they could get their own cereal and juice. Then as they grew it stuck. Now we have no uppers (shelving)and the assorted glasses are fairly it kills two birds!

I'm enjoying your blog

Linda, I know what you mean about the assorted and fairly ugly glasses that seem to end up being in the family "collection" and the drawer is a great way to hide them! *grin*

Hi, Susan, thank you for stoppping by. Oh, wouldn't I love to have that much storage space, I could buy more dishes!

Got your book in the mail this week, thank you so much! I'm sure it's a fantastic resource for someone buidling a house (which we will probably never do!). I can see it would cover everything thoroughly. Thanks!

I love this idea! Wish we had room to do something like it in our kitchen drawers (which are few).

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.
