Special Cabinets, Corner Cabinets, Lazy Susan Cabinets

Corner cabinets can create special problems because of the wasted, inaccessible space behind where the two cabinets come together.

The space in the corner inside the cabinets in most kitchen of an older configuration is  inaccessible and wasted space. In additional, when the dishwasher door is opened, if you have the same kitchen as I than there is no option to open the cabinet door or drawer.

There are two solutions to this problem. First, install a lazy Sussan unit to provide easily accessible storage space. The are commonly 36” (914mm) across the front, leaving about 12” (305mm) exposed along each face.

This lazy susan is rated to hold up to 200 pounds (91kg) on two shelves. The doors are attached to the shelves and the entire unit rotates.

On this style lazy Susan, a fixed door opens before the shelves can rotate.

The second solution is to use a corner cabinet with diagonal front. This works best for upper wall cabinet. It allows easy access to the space in the corner and takes up an area that is 24” by 24” (610mm by 610mm)

Other common types of cabinet are oven cabinets and pantry cabinets.

These will usually be the same depth as the lower base cabinets, but the same height as the installed lower and upper cabinets combined.
