If you've got storage issues in your kitchen, you may want to consider a Lazy Susan kitchen cabinet. You can place this convenient rotating tray design in just about any cabinet, but many homeowners choose to use a corner cabinet—often unused or inefficient without a design tweak—for a Lazy Susan kitchen cabinet.

In terms of what to store, a Lazy Susan is perfect for frequently used supplies like spices, sugars and coffee or tea sweeteners, or other general food stores. Its rotating design allows for easy access, eliminating the need to pore through various containers and create a mess to find a given item.

Lazy Susans are available in a variety of sizes and designs from home improvement, furniture and design stores. Some can even be removed from the cabinet and conveniently used for school or craft projects, making them doubly efficient.
