You might find that your corner kitchen cabinets hold your food and cooking or cleaning supplies so well that items get lost in the deep spaces in there and become forgotten dust catchers. While some corner cabinets can be frustrating, they are a reality in the layout of most kitchens. The good news is that there are a lot of new storage solutions in the market now to help prevent your corner cabinets from becoming kitchen wastelands.

One idea to investigate is whether or not your corner kitchen cabinets can become a drawer/cabinet combo. Drawers by nature pull out and allow you access to the back of your cabinets in the simplest way. Custom corner cabinets made with pie-shaped drawers are one option for creating a more effective corner area of your kitchen. Keep in mind that with a pie-shaped drawer, you will need to come up with a creative cabinet-pull system or have double pulls—one set for each side of the pie.

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.

No matter what you choose to store in your corner kitchen cabinet, modern innovations in kitchen storage solutions will give you plenty of options to maximize your kitchen space and keep the dust off those items you once thought were lost in the depths of your corner cabinets.
