I recently received a request from one of my readers to address the issue of the “blind corner cabinet.” The dreaded lower blind corner cabinet in the kitchen, that awful thing that unites all homeowners in their shared loathing. Today, in your honor, I will attempt to solve the storage space that has riddled residents since the day modern cabinetry was installed in that first kitchen, when most likely a carpenter mis-read some plans… It’s of the utmost importance that you keep the contents stored in the corner cabinet to the bare minimum.

Once you combine A. the dark, and B. the hard to reach with C. (appropriately enough for) clutter, what you gets equals out to a disaster and the biggest pain in the arse to deal with– each and every time you open it. If you do nothing else, cut back on the amount of items you store in the blind corner cabinet.

Consider instituting a no stacking or nesting rule, instead requiring each piece to have a distinct place on the shelf. This half moon lazy susan or this pie cut turntable would both make a massive difference in the accessibility of your corner cabinet.

One step beyond the lazy susan in ease is the pull-out lazy susan, like this half-moon shelf set (wood version also available), and perhaps one step beyond that is the blind corner optimizer which allows for accessibility of the entire unit. And although I couldn’t come up with photographic depiction, I have seen the following done: remove the shelf, install hooks on the inside and top of the cabinet, and hang pans up by their handles. Though the cabinet will still be in the corner, it won’t be blind with a battery-operated stick-on tap light . Stick one of those bad boys on either shelf level and press it on when you need to search out granny’s sterling silver serving tray.
