Question

No drawer slides for 19 inch drawers?


I have 19" bathroom drawers and want to upgrade them to soft-close drawer slides. The available slides all seem to come in 3" increments and are either for 18" or 21" drawers... and they're not adjustable. Am I out of luck? I prefer NOT to buy a size that doesn't fit and try to improvise.

Thanks!

-Doug

I have a couple of 19" drawers, too. 18" slides work fine.

It's not that big a deal if the drawer doesn't extend 100% of the way, and only 90%. You can still easily access whatever is in the back of the drawer.

Here's what I don't like about setting the drawer slide hardware back an inch: Now I have to put screws through the (thin) bottom of the drawers to attach the locking mechanism that go in the front corners. They're now back an inch from the front of the drawer and can't be attached to the face any more.

Re: No drawer slides for 19 inch drawers?


The way I installed mine is to have the front edge of the track at the front of the drawer, right up to the face frame, as if it was a full length slide. It just comes up a couple of inches short at the back of the drawer. Doesn't affect how it operates, other than it doesn't pull out 100% of the way.

Cabinets and drawer designs can be very different. Can you post a picture of what you ahve.?

My Blum 563 slides attach to the back of the drawer too, so I have to leave the 1" gap at the front.

See attached pic.

Thanks,

OK, gotcha. Those are a different style of slide than I have worked with.

Have you checked the Blum website for installation tips in this situation?

Or maybe somebody with experience with Blum slides will chime in.

I keep thinking they must be adjustable, or that Blum must have an adjustable model, or why would anyone have 19" drawers? So far I don't see adjustable soft-close slides. Thank you for your time and suggestions.
