How To Pick Drawer Slides For Your Home

There are a number of drawer slides to choose from and it is best that you keep the following in mind if you are planning to get one:

  • Choose one of the two major drawer slides category; side rollers or center-bottom rollers. Side rollers are made out of metal and can create a sliding shelf. On the other hand, center-bottom rollers have a track where your drawer will sit on.
  • Pick the length of extension that you prefer. There are some slides which extend up to the entire length of the slide and there are some that does not. On the other hand, full-extension slides allow the drawer to be opened fully though pulling everything out will cause it to fall. Three-quarters slides though cannot be opened completely as compared to the former.
  • Be particular about the price and make a comparison. Individual drawer slides can cost as low as $5 up to $25. Drawer slide sets however costs $25 to $50 and that is not even picking a branded one. And those that have special functions such as self closing drawer slides may cost more.

These are some of the things that you have to keep in mind before you purchase a drawer slide.
