Picture of Hacking Ikea Rationell toe kick drawers to fit more
In the standard setup from Ikea the Rationell toe kick drawers the height of the drawer front  is limited to 13.8 cm and the usable height inside the drawer is around 10 cm. Simply just too little to fit your pints of Guinness in an upright position. What to do when your plinth allows more? The aluminium front only allows the before mentioned 13.8 cm

Step 1: Flipping the Aluminium front

The aluminium front can be flipped, but the holes for mounting it on the drawer is wrongly positioned then. Take another front and flip it 180 degree's. Hold them together and use them as template for drilling the 4 new holes.

hi,
few questions.
1. seems that the drawer is sliding and dragging on floor every time you open it?
2. added tracks for the drawer box. do they clamp to the legs, since the space below is hollow?
3. how to u pull the drawers?
thanks

Hi,

1. I adjusted the height of the wheel with a piece of wood, so it juuuust above the floor as shown in step 3.

2. Yes

3. There's space between the "proper" cup boards and this lower drawer to get a finger or two in to pull it.

U'r welcome :)
