If pull-out drawers or even pull-out inner cabinet shelves don’t fix your corner storage issues, another very popular corner cabinet solution is to install a lazy Susan. Lazy Susans allow you to rotate your cabinet shelves, bringing items from the back of your space to the front for use. Lazy Susans can be purchased in a variety of materials, finishes, shapes and sizes to accommodate any corner storage space. They can be shaped like pie cuts, kidneys, half-moons, or full circles depending on your individual configuration needs. Lazy Susans can be installed to rotate within your existing cabinet or can be pulled out of your cabinet and then rotated for easy access to your cabinet contents.

Another, perhaps simpler option for your corner cabinets is to create a swing-out corner door. A hinged swing-out door, when extended, folds out away from the corner—thus exposing all of the contents of your corner cabinet for easy access. Adding this custom door onto your corner cabinet is a cost-effective way to make your kitchen storage space more useful.

Exquisite Kitchen Design 1. Blind corner. Considered a standard solution for kitchen corners, a blind cabinet allows homeowners to access the void created when two walls of cabinetry meet at a corner. This space is accessible via a single cabinet door. The downside, of course, is that while you may be able to access this space, it isn’t always easy to do it. You often have to get down on your hands and knees and reach into the back of your cabinet to find what you need. Because of this, these spaces often become junk bins that are left untouched for years. If you’re on a tight budget, blind corners can knock a few numbers off your bill. They’re less expensive than customized corner options like Lazy Susans and swinging pullouts.
