In today's market, many home owners find themselves placing seldom used items on the top shelves of their wall cabinets, or in the cabinet above the refrigerator. These home owners currently lack a solution for gaining easy access to these locations. This is especially prevalent in homes with tall ceilings, as the wall cabinets in the kitchen typically become taller.

We are interested in exploring different solutions to help home owners access these high locations in their kitchens more easily.
