Often referred to as the "Bermuda triangle of the kitchen," the corner kitchen cabinet is sometimes the place that food stores and supplies enter, never to be seen again. Hard to access and harder to use efficiently, corner cabinets can waste space and cause frustration—unless you explore some of the clever ideas used to remedy the conundrum of the corner kitchen cabinet.

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.
