Ideas for kitchen corner cabinets

The corner where two sides of your kitchen come together is often a somewhat wasted space. Cabinets manufacturers have designed products that help you use the space more effectively. There are solutions available to upper corners, lower corners and even to the corner of the counter.

Rotating Shelves
Tradicional One way to deal with a corner cupboard is to install a set of rotating shelves. These shelves, often called lazy susans, allow you to rotate until the item you need is at your fingertips. Searching units having a flange on the edge of the shelf, so that small objects do not fly out by centrifugal force from the rotation of the shelves. This type of cabinet has two typical configurations. Some have the door set diagonally. This style is more common for upper corner cabinets, but it is sometimes also seen in the lower. Another type has a door with two panels at right angles relative to each other. These panels can be hinged, or be fixed to the edges of the turntable itself. With this style, rotating shelves do not have the form of a complete circle, but seven more like a pizza with a missing portion, the portion in which is located the corner. Some rotating trays are fixed, so that both levels rotate together, while others have two separate levels that rotate independently of each other. All these styles are great ways to use the space when you have a cabinet position in a corner, if you have access to the cabinet from both sides of the corner.

Corner shelves driving for dead
Maybe you have a corner where there is a kitchen appliance from one side of it. This means you have access from one side only: a narrow door cabinet that opens to a closet bigger than the width of the door. This is called dead or blind corner because you can barely see what is on the back. Many cabinet makers make units that slide so that you can store objects in the back and still reach them. Most of these are in two parts. Drag the first part and rotate on its axis to make room for the second part forward. How are you some units are attached to the inside front of the door, and other function independently of the cabinet door. Most have an upper and lower shelf in each of the two sections.



Garage appliances
Another easily wasted space on the corner of a kitchen is the space that is actually on the counter itself. Depending on the depth of it and the position of the corner, you may find that you can not even reach the bottom right corner. A good way to use this space is to install an appliance garage. This is an additional cabinet, usually placed a little further back from the front of the counter, which provides a storage for small appliances such as a blender, a toaster or a coffee maker. Ask your cabinet manufacturer to determine if your garage is supposed appliance allows you to use them or just store them. A toaster or cafetera may create too much heat in a confined space. This type of cabinet can keep your small appliances out of sight when you’re not using, making your counter look neat and organized.
