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.

At Mother Hubbard’s, one of our favorite techniques is to use design to overcome the problems with corner cabinetry. The challenge with a corner cabinet stems from the hard, 90-degree angle that elongates the space between the front and back of the corner. A smart designer can minimize the dead space by changing the single 90-degree angle into two 45 degree bends. As the featured image at the top of this post highlights, not only does this offer better access to the corner storage, it also opens up design possibilities. Indeed, we’re fans of unique accessories such as wicker baskets on sliding wooden pull-outs or a corner sink like our York PA project shown here.

Your safest, overall bet when it comes to storing any smaller items inside corner cabinets is to employ some variation of container. As long as you find containers that’ll fit within, you can generally bet that corner cabinet + basket/bin/tray is far easier to deal with than corner cabinet sans removable container.

Technically, it’s understandable why corner cabinetry has gotten such a bad reputation. First, a person’s comfortable reach is a bit under two feet. To touch the farthest reaches of a corner cabinet could well be half again as much, requiring you to stick your torso into the cabinet. That’s no fun!

The dimensions of this laundry room are 8’x9′. The upper cabinets over the washer/dryer are 16″ deep. The counter, straight ahead, is a full 24″ deep with 12″ uppers,standard. The cabinets to the right are 12″ deep. Notice I angled the upper corner cabinets and took all cabinets to the ceiling.

Upper corner kitchen cabinets are a possessor of their own brand of evil, and in some cases (like when the entry is fist-wide and the door is one hobbit-sized panel) are even more difficult than the lower.
