In-cupboard kitchen bins are only continuing to grow in popularity as more people become aware of their benefits, including freeing up floor space, maximising cabinet space and keeping waste out of sight.
If you’re planning on installing an integrated pull-out bin into a 500mm-wide cupboard, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’ve highlighted some of the best in-cupboard bins suitable for 500mm cabinets, perfect for helping you keep your kitchen super functional and looking great.
The Best In-Cupboard Kitchen Recycling Bins for 500mm-Wide Cabinets
Integrated bins can be retro-fitted into your existing kitchen or incorporated into a new kitchen design.
And if it’s a 500mm cabinet you want to turn into a kitchen bin, there are plenty of products that’ll help you do this. With a range of bins with varying depths, capacities and compartments, you’re sure to find a style suitable for your space.
When seeking the right bin, you’ll also need to consider what kind of door your intended cupboard has: pull-out or hinged? Here, we discuss some of our best pull-out options, but you will also find a great selection of bins for 500mm-wide cabinets with hinged doors.
All of our pull-out bins for 500mm cabinets come with soft close runners for smooth operation, ensuring your kitchen is decked out in the highest-quality products that prioritise function and durability.
What Size Bin Do I Need For My 500mm-Wide Cabinet?
Your cupboard’s measurements (the width of the door and the cupboard’s internal depth, width and height) will largely dictate the size of your bin, but there are also some choices to be made in terms of capacity and the number of compartments.
Bins in our section for 500mm pull-out doors need to fit to an internal cabinet width of between 462-468mm – in other words, a 500mm base unit made with 16-19mm material for the carcass sides.
The internal depth (from the front inner edge to the back panel or wall) does vary across cabinet ranges and also across the bin models, so please measure your cabinet and check against the fitted dimensions of each product which you can find on the product page under ‘Specification’. You’ll also find the height of each product here.
We recommend going for the largest bin you can accommodate as you’ll have to empty it less frequently. Opting for a bin with more compartments will also help make recycling and sorting rubbish much easier. Our range of 500mm cabinet bins includes options with up to three handy compartments.
