Hidden Trashcan

Finally installed the hardware to hide the trashcan into the cabinet. You do loose cabinet space however with this kitchen for us there's still plenty left. Bought the kit at Lowes and to attach the cabinet door like we did requires another kit sold separate. 

The granite company came out to fix the countertop and the rep also came to try and talk us into keeping our island countertop. When I told her we weren't budging based on her own technician's comments she then started to put down Ryan Homes and the construction of our cabinets and what we could and could not do with granite countertops. It really solidified my decision to have it replaced because I wasn't going to deal with her crazy ass down the road. I was really shocked how she behaved in a customers home in front of her client (RH). Needless to say that will be the last time I deal with them. Now we can start on our back splash!

  1. Oh that I'd great! Exactly what I want! You wouldn't mind taking a trip to Puttsburgh to install one in my kitchen, would you?

    Love all of your updates! Thank you for continuing to share!

  2. Love this! I have one where I have to open my cabinet then pull it out, and it's the exact same system. I guess I didn't even know it could be attached and pulled with the door. I will def do this in the new house. Thanks!

  3. :) @ JBY My son lives out that way maybe the next time I come to visit I'll swing by.... The door kit is in a small box and anyone at Lowes will be able to help you find it and it's a very easy transition.

  4. Sold! I am definitely getting this and the plastic trays from your previous post. Great little things that make HUGE impacts. I hate seeing sponges and the kitchen trash just out in plain view, now I can tuck them away and no one will even know. Thank you thank you thank you!

  5. Looks good and you get two bins in there to boot.

    Glad they are replacing the countertop, not your fault that it was chipped there!

  6. They are kind of pricey @ $79 for the kit (includes both trash cans) and the secondary kit for the door is around $9 or $16. Here is a link but don't buy off line go to Lowes you'll understand when you see the website prices lol. TeamMom23 I agree I love these extra things that make the house neat.

  7. We wanted to get one of these as well but the thought of the kids dropping all kinds of things and missing the target seemed like a nightmare. With a couple of adults Im sure it will work out fine. The kitchen really looks amazing!

  8. I love this hidden trashcan! I like the idea that you can fit two trashcans; one for trash and the other for recycling.

  9. Another idea that I had was to put censored light switches in the 1/2 baths and master bedroom closet. It took a bit of getting used to but now I never reach for the switch when going into those 2 places. Also if your building the Ravenna model (not sure about the rest) the laundry room is a tight fit with the washer/dryer so we had the electrician put the light switch outside the door because our washer is a front loader that sits on the drawer making it higher. I thought this would be an issue with the light switch and I was right as I would've had to slide my hand in between the washer and the wall to turn on the light.

  10. Hi I love your ideas and would love to implement them after we close. I love the hidden trashcan and the light switches are already an issue for me. Where do you get the censored light switches.

    HOW IS YOUR NEW HOME COMING ALONG! WOULD LOVE TO HEAR AND SEE PICTURES!

    THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR IDEAS--KEEP THEM COMING!
