Best corner storage solutions?

Posted by tamlif (My Page) on

I have an "L" shaped kitchen with an island. The corner of the L will have both base and upper cabinets and I am trying to figure out what is the best storage solution for this area.

I am not a fan of the lazy Suzan.

Since i am doing mostly drawers For the base I am considering those drawers that pull out like a triangle. (Do you know what I mean?) if anyone has those please share the pros and cons.

I just can't figure out what to do with the upper cabinets.

Does anybody have any good ideas/pictures for this corner area?

RE: Best corner storage solutions?

You pretty much have 5 choices for inside corners:
1) easy reach for upper and super susan easy reach for lower
2) diagonal for both (mix 'n' match works too)
3) dead space
4) inside corner drawers

5) Rev-a-shelf type pullout

People really seem to have a comfort level with some or all of these solutions - meaning they love some and hate others. I've linked a recent thread on this which you may find helpful, but there are others with photos and testimonials on why individuals love what they have, or not.

Google "kitchen blind corners" and you'll get a bunch of hits, many from GW. This is an issue that everyone struggles with.
