One of the first ideas to investigate is whether or not your corner kitchen cabinet can become a drawer/cabinet combo. A recent innovation in kitchens is to create a swing-out corner cabinet. When extended, it folds out away from the corner, exposing all of the supplies in the cabinet for easy access. This is a relatively simple customization that can create a much more useful corner cabinet.

Another tweak that can take advantage of pesky corner cabinets is the well-known Lazy Susan. This rotating shelf will allow easy access to all the cabinet has to offer

If you're dealing with a blind corner in your cabinet, you may want to consider adding pull-out shelves—these will allow you to reach into the cabinet and choose which shelf to access, while pivoting the unused shelf to the back of the cabinet.
