Why Your Kitchen Needs Corner Kitchen Cabinets
When you’re replacing the cabinetry in your
home, if it includes an intersection of two walls, you may be wondering if corner kitchen cabinets will be
helpful or if they will simply be a waste of your money as they are slightly more expensive than standard
cabinetry pieces. You’ve likely looked at many different home décor and remodeling websites and
magazines to view pictures of what some terrific new styles and the difference that certain specifications –
like corner kitchen cabinets – can make.
In the photographs, they look great – but will this look translate to your kitchen? Will you be happy with
your purchase if you do decide to add corner kitchen cabinets to your remodeling design? Use the following
information to help to understand what this type of cabinetry can do for your home.
Corner kitchen cabinets offer extra storage space
Do you have items in your kitchen that simply don’t have a home, such as gadgets or dishes
that are only used on special or rare occasions or odd shaped pieces such as a gravy boat, cake dish, or punch
bowl? The added storage offered by corner kitchen cabinets can create a home for those items, leaving them
accessible when you need them, but out of the way for the rest of the time.
This is certainly preferable to having to dig the items out of storage every time you want to use them. It
also means that you won’t need to sacrifice shelving used for everyday items to those you won’t be using very
much. Moreover, you won’t need to leave those items out, taking up space on your countertops. All of
those little extras will have a happy home in corner kitchen cabinets.
Corner kitchen cabinets are the perfect place for a Lazy Susan
If you will be using corner kitchen cabinets as a part of your pantry, they offer the ideal opportunity to
install a Lazy Susan, which can help to keep things handy all the time. If you usually keep a large number of
canned goods, teas, spice jars, or bottled foods, then storing them in corner kitchen cabinets with a Lazy Susan
will eliminate the need to dig around and search for what you need. The added depth afforded by corner
kitchen cabinets lets you take advantage of the fact that a Lazy Susan always keeps everything right out front
where you can find it.
Corner kitchen cabinets can keep non-cooking related items out of the way
Though kitchens are primarily used for cooking, the additional multipurpose nature of the space means that they
always contain a large number of items that are not directly related to food preparation. This can include
phone books, vitamins, note pads and pens, stamps, bills, cookbooks, and other common household materials. By
storing these items in corner kitchen cabinets, you avoid leaving them on your kitchen surfaces or creating a “junk
drawer”, which fills a perfectly usable drawer with items that aren’t connected to your meal prep. It will
allow the drawer to be used much more practically.
Corner kitchen cabinets offer an attractive display feature
If you choose corner kitchen cabinets with a glass door or with glass inserts in the door, or if you select a
model that has only shelving but no doors at all, you can create an attractive display element in your
kitchen. This can give you the space to show off the pretty, fun, or otherwise attractive little decorations
you’d like to include in your kitchen, but previously never had room to show.
These are only a few of the reasons that corner kitchen cabinets are a good choice for kitchens with a corner to
their cabinetry. The actual design and purpose of this type of cabinetry is highly versatile, so its use in
your own home is limited only by your own imagination.
