One of the frustrations of kitchen use is the dreaded kitchen corners. If you have cabinets that are in a corner, you might be able to relate to looking for something and it is all the way in the back of the cabinet. The cabinet seems to go back farther than your arm can reach, and it’s dark back there and hard to see what else is stuck in there. When considering remodeling your kitchen corners, you can change up your corner cabinets into something more useful. What are some options? Read on to see how you can change your corner cabinet space for the better.
Old Standby Updated
The old standby for the corner cabinet was the circular Lazy Susan. You put your items on a round turn able shelf and then everything can be in reach. Until it falls off the shelf and lands all the way back in the corner. Then it is time to get creative. This concept from the past can still have a place if you put a modern touch on it. You can have the Lazy Susan but have the shelving actually pull out instead of just spin around. This way you can get a better feel for what is on the shelf and bring the items into better lighting.
Another concept to consider is to have a corner drawer. This drawer will have a V shape to it, and everything can be pulled out into better lighting to get a good look. Everything will also be within better reach. This can be placed above the new and improved Lazy Susan.
Swing Out Cabinet
If you would prefer not to have a turnable shelf, you can create swing out shelving for your corner cabinet. This will allow items to be seen easier and be accessed quicker. You can choose to have larger shelving that comes out (like a drawer) or use smaller shelving (smaller pieces moving separately) to store like items together easier.
You would need to determine what you would like to utilize the corner cabinet for to determine the size and mobility of the shelves that you would like to use.
Another suggestion would be when redoing the shelves, round out the corners so corners don’t exist anymore. No more corners mean no more corner issues. Determining your storage needs will help you determine if you can round out the corners and still have enough room for all of your things.
