Have you been redesigning and remodeling your cabinets lately? If so, you're probably wondering what options you have at your disposal that can help maximize the amount of storage space available while keeping your style intact.
Here are some of the best corner-cabinet solutions for any kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom.
The Lazy Susan Solution – A cabinet with a Lazy Susan will allow you to reach just about anything in your cabinet with ease. A Lazy Susan is a rotating shelf that fits snugly inside of corner cabinets. It's a classic solution that has made homes more efficient than ever before. This is very commonly used for kitchen corner cabinets that need to store lots of food.
The Rotating Pullout Solution – If you have a kitchen that is filled to the brim with goodies, cans, and boxes, it may be a good idea to get a rotating pullout corner cabinet to help store all of your kitchen supplies efficiently. The rotating pullout option is great for situations where need to find specific items in your cabinet. This product allows you to pull out the shelving and rotate it to find that one special spice you need in order to complete that recipe, making it a favorite for kitchens.
The Pullout Shelf Solution – If you are looking for a highly inexpensive solution for your corner cabinets, it's always a smart idea to keep the old-fashioned choice of a pullout shelf in mind. This is usually the most inexpensive solution for what to do with all that extra space. This option is common for bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms.
The Hybrid Solution – If you like the idea of having a Lazy Susan on one shelf while having a pullout drawer on another, maybe you should look into combination shelving solutions. This can be a bit more expensive than other options since these are often custom-made for your particular specifications. Still, if you want to use your corner cabinets for two completely different categories of items, this is a good way to design your cabinets.
Adding Corner Optimizers – Corner optimizers are a good way to make the harder-to-reach corners of a corner cabinet easier to deal with. If you have a regular corner cabinet design, you can still install optimizers for a quick remodeling makeover that will not break the bank.
It can be hard to decide which option is the best for you, since many options may seem like a great match. In times like these, it may be a good idea to get a second opinion. Other times, you may be absolutely sure about which option you want, but you may be advised against it by professionals who work with interior design. It's important to take your designer's ideas into consideration. More often than not, consulting a very skilled interior designer can shed some light on which solution is best for your room's cabinets. Or, simply ask your friends who have implemented similar solutions into their kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms and see which they like the best.
