Create kitchen storage with corner units
Whatever the size of your kitchen – there always seems to be a lack of storage. The culprit can sometimes be underutilised corner storage.
Whether your room is square, rectangular or unusually shaped, it can be difficult to organise your kitchen contents in those hard to reach corners that often sit empty and unused. In contrast, more accessible drawers and cupboards tend to be overcrowded and cluttered. So, how do you make the most of the space you have? This guide explains how clever corner unit storage could be the solution.
Curved pull-out corner cabinets
Keep your kitchen contents at your fingertips with a curved pull-out corner cabinet.
The manoeuvrable cabinet gives maximum access; making those difficult spaces easy to reach – ideal for heavier items you don't want to damage.
Curved base corner storage units can stow away bulky kitchen essentials such as spice racks, wine coolers and tin trays. To retrieve, simply pull the contents towards you in one easy motion.
Magic corner cabinets
Double your cupboard space with magic corner cabinets.
Two complete storage units are attached to one another in a single corner cabinet – one is secured to the inside of the door and, on opening, automatically pulls the other one forward in a seamless motion.
Ideal for storing pots and pans; there's no need to bury them deep in an unused corner.
Carousel corner cabinets
In contrast to the pull-out mechanism, corner carousel units rotate (just like a carousel) and are best suited to corners and L-shaped kitchens.
Trays are fixed inside the cabinet and simply swivel, so it's easy to see every item in the cupboard.
Opt for a half carousel if you simply need access to hard-to-reach corners, but if you want to maximise your storage space, opt for the three-quarter carousel.
Kitchen drawers seem to attract all of those odds and ends that don't have a designated home.
If you have an awkward corner in your kitchen, utilise the small space with a corner draw – a place to keep cutlery clean and accessible.
Once installed, keep the drawers organised with dividers and trays to maintain a neat and tidy finish – sectioning your utensils to suit your everyday needs.
How to choose a corner cabinet
- Consider how much space you have – it's important to measure your internal kitchen cabinet units and drawers before you buy.
- Always take the dimensions from the inside of the frames – where the storage mechanisms will be fitted.
- Corner cabinets are available in a wide choice of door styles and colours – ready to be matched perfectly to your kitchen.
Making the most of your kitchen space can be a challenge – but re-working your kitchen's storage doesn't have to be a big project.
When every pot, pan and utensil has its own designated space, cooking in the kitchen becomes quicker and simpler.
Corner cabinets make better use of limited and unused space, they improve access to hard-to-reach areas and free-up worktop space leaving you with an organised kitchen for cooking, easting and entertaining.
