Yup. Rev-A-Shelf has plastic as well as stainless steel trays for the "tip out sink front".

swimmer_spe, did you ever figure out what you were going to use above the fridge?

Not yet. However, this home is not a high end home, and I plan to sell in 5 years. Too be fair, I will make the opening big enough for a large fridge and just have regular shelving for it. My next home, the one that may be my forever home, I would put things like that in.

Ah. Then if you don't plan to stay, you don't need to do anything fancy.
What color cabinet do you want and what is your price range?

I saw an unfinished one close to $60 on HD. http://www.homedepot.com/p/36x12x12-...2OHD/202978361

There is a white one for a little more http://www.homedepot.com/p/Heartland...015P/203932392

There's one that is more expensive-- like $133 http://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton-B...-NHK/202518635

You can try looking here for ones that are 36" wide (if you want to go that wide).

don't over buy the fridge, buy only what size fits the needs of your family. Whats the sense of buying a large fridge if there are only 2 or 3 in your family? If you get it too big, you will be spending money to cool the empty spaces in the fridge. I can see getting a little more than you need so as to keep thing from getting too crowded

I agree wholeheartedly. I am a single guy. The fridge I have is fine, but I don't plan to live here forever. I also don't plan to be single, or childless for ever.

I want to remodel the kitchen so that a decent sized fridge fits. I am not talking those ginormous ones. The house is a 3 bedroom, so, I figure one that is a good size for a family of 4-6 is the size I want to build for. That doesn't mean I will ever get a big one. It just means that when I sell, the new family can fit one in that they need.
