Storage Discussion: Cabinet Doors

What is the advantage of storing items behind cabinet doors? The basic method of storage inside a cabinet is shelving. A standard wall, base or tall cabinet will come with a specific number of shelves based on the height of the cabinet. While most all shelving is adjustable the functionality of the cabinet can be increased by adding internal storage accessories such as roll outs, tray dividers, spice racks, door storage racks, mixer shelf and can racks.
