The corner cabinet is a common achilles heel for homeowners and designers. If your remodel includes a corner cabinet, there are some solutions for optimizing accessibility.
Open Cabinets/ Shelves
If you want necessities easily accessible, open shelves may be a good choice. Open shelves can bring a cottage, transitional style to any home. They also allow you to display things that add color to your kitchen such as plants, photos, or the cookie jar!
Angled cabinets helps avoid the small cave that occurs when a corner cabinet is implemented. Drawers can also can be used in conjunction with a cabinet. These can also be implemented when near a sink, stove or microwave.
Arguably the most popular corner cabinet solution is the lazy susan. Available in two versions, the “cheese-wheel shape” with a retractable door, or an attached door that “closes” on rotation. These allow you to maximize the space of a corner cabinet.
Taking the lazy susan idea further, pullout shelves allow you to essentially pull out the lazy susan and see the things you are keeping in the cabinets.
Corner drawers are a recent innovation displayed here by Design Craft. These allow for a modern and eclectic solution to the corner cabinet problem. Perfect for storing small, odd shaped utensils or storing items like small baking utensils, tea collections or small appliances.
