1. Blind corner. Considered a standard solution for kitchen corners, a blind cabinet allows homeowners to access the void created when two walls of cabinetry meet at a corner. This space is accessible via a single cabinet door.
The downside, of course, is that while you may be able to access this space, it isn’t always easy to do it. You often have to get down on your hands and knees and reach into the back of your cabinet to find what you need. Because of this, these spaces often become junk bins that are left untouched for years.
If you’re on a tight budget, blind corners can knock a few numbers off your bill. They’re less expensive than customized corner options like lazy Susans and swinging pullouts.
5. Diagonal cabinet. These can be prefabricated boxes or custom-built. You can even insert a standard cabinet box at a 45-degree angle if there isn’t a prefabricated cabinet available.
Diagonal corner cabinets are a nice visual break and can add dimension to your kitchen. They often utilize the entire corner space, but as with blind corner cabinets, you will have to reach back into the recesses of the cabinet to find your dishware.
10. Standard cabinet. You don’t always have to install a corner cabinet. Sometimes you won’t have the space to fit one in (as in the kitchen above). Or you may simply want an open cabinet design. This is where a standard cabinet can be the best choice for your layout and needs.
It won’t present any accessibility problems, though some homeowners may miss the extra storage space that corner cabinets provide.
