Cabinet door trash panel

+7
Answered
I have a cabinet door below my bathroom sink. I would like to cut a hole in the door of approximately 8" wide x 4" tall. Then I would like to insert a swing panel of some kind so a small garbage pail can be placed inside the cabinet.

The attached photo not exactly what I want, but will give an idea. With it, the opening does not have to be finished... I would want a chrome color (if possible) and I'd like the door to swing like a trash can would (at least swing in...(the attached pops in and out and can not remain in place for this use).

Any thoughts?

    If you don't have to have a panel cut into the door, have you considered something like these? We use one under our kitchen sink and it doesn't take up any of the cabinet space.

    I don’t know how much stuff you put in your bathroom trash, but here it’s mostly small. Why don’t you just cut and assemble a small “laundry shute“? If it’s small enough you needn’t even cover it. Or attach a flat piece of stainless, or aluminum, on a piano hinge to the inside of the cabinet.

    This may sound odd, but perhaps a 'doggie door' could be utilized in this situation. They make all sorts of them these days (sizes, colors, etc.). I like your idea!

      I'm making over $12k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://www.Jobzon3.com

    I'm just curious, do you have a cat? I'm getting a covered trash can because of my little darling! Would be a great idea for toddlers too. I think a pet door would be a great idea.

    I do have a cat, but this is not for any purpose related to that. The pet door I see is too big, but I found an option... Home Depot small plastic access panel.
