How To Deal With The Blind Corner Kitchen Cabinet

January 22, 2013

I recently received a request from one of my readers to address the issue of the “blind corner cabinet.

In attempts to clarify she wrote,

I have no idea what else to call it. It is the one that you can reach into, but then have to practically crawl into to get to everything you’ve stuffed into the corner of it. This is a horrible explanation, but hopefully you know what I’m talking about!

Oh, my little down-on-your-hands-and-knees, searching for the crock pot in that vast expanse of cabinetry. Not only do I know exactly what you’re talking about, I truthfully can’t believe it’s taken me this long to mention it. The dreaded lower blind corner cabinet in the kitchen, that awful thing that unites all homeowners in their shared loathing. Today, in your honor, I will attempt to solve the storage space that has riddled residents since the day modern cabinetry was installed in that first kitchen, when most likely a carpenter mis-read some plans…

1. Choose wisely

The corner cabinet is low on the kitchen real estate totem pole. That means that the items you’re stowing within should be the ones you don’t reach for on a regular basis. Those commonly used items should be awarded prime placement in other, far more accessible cabinets. Perhaps you only use your kitchenAid mixer about three times a year, making that mixer an excellent candidate for the corner cabinet. Ditto various serving trays, bakeware, etc.

2. Establish and uphold capacity

It’s of the utmost importance that you keep the contents stored in the corner cabinet to the bare minimum. This is no place for clutter and I mean that and I really do. Once you combine A. the dark, and B. the hard to reach with C. (appropriately enough for) clutter, what you gets equals out to a disaster and the biggest pain in the arse to deal with– each and every time you open it.

If you do nothing else, cut back on the amount of items you store in the blind corner cabinet. Consider instituting a no stacking or nesting rule, instead requiring each piece to have a distinct place on the shelf. Store no more than that.

3. Throw yourself a bone. That turns. 

If you are open to equipping your blind corner with some cabinetry accessories, then a lazy susan is certainly the way to go. This half moon lazy susan or this pie cut turntable would both make a massive difference in the accessibility of your corner cabinet.

4. Throw yourself a fancier, even more flexible, customizable bone.

If you’re willing to spend a bit more, there are a bevy of options to ease the corner pain. One step beyond the lazy susan in ease is the pull-out lazy susan, like this half-moon shelf set (wood version also available), and perhaps one step beyond that is the blind corner optimizer which allows for accessibility of the entire unit.

5. Rethink everything

Always remember that you have the freedom to set up your home in the way that works best for you.  Just because that tricky corner guy has been traditionally used as a home for things like muffin trays and crock pots does not mean yours has to be the resting ground for such things. Forget everything you know and ask yourself what the ideal use of that space is for you. A few ideas to set your thoughts ablaze:

rotary recycling center.

A wine rack.

And although I couldn’t come up with photographic depiction, I have seen the following done: remove the shelf, install hooks on the inside and top of the cabinet, and hang pans up by their handles.

6. Light it up

Last ditch idea– an easy way to increase the visibility in the corner cabinet is to illuminate it. Though the cabinet will still be in the corner, it won’t be blind with a battery-operated stick-on tap light. Stick one of those bad boys on either shelf level and press it on when you need to search out granny’s sterling silver serving tray.

 

 

How do you deal with your blind corner cabinet?

    That last picture totally just blew my mind. I think my eyes might have just crossed a little.

  2. Crystal on January 22, 2013 at 8:53 am

    I changed both my blind corner cabinets into lazy susans. Best decision I ever made!!

    Girl, you are on to something! The color and organization changes everything! LOVE.

    I put in an angle sink base cabinet. It gets rid of the 2 worst cabinets in one. The other corner is like the top photo, and I put mixing bowls, baking dishes and colanders. The one that we got rid of was a true blind cabinet, not like the photos above It had one door, and went back behind the other cabinet in the corner.

  6. lbmillr on January 8, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    what about a HIGH corner cabinet, not one that’s on the floor but one off the ceiling – it’s wasting so much space at our house:(

    • Annie on January 9, 2014 at 9:36 am

      OH MY GOSH those are THE WORST! I know exactly what you’re talking about, and really, could and should be a post in and of itself.

      • Kerri on February 4, 2014 at 3:56 pm

        I’d love a post on those, too! Although the picture showing the full lazy Susan with the angled door above *is* giving me an idea!

      • Deneen on September 5, 2014 at 9:04 am

        Did you get time to write this post you planned to write? I would love to get your ideas. I am dealing with blind corners to the left of a stove on both the lower and upper cabinets. Especially the blind corner in the cabinet to the left of the stove where I store my pots, pans, etc. That area is such a pain since it is right next to the stove … there is no return … just like in your last image of the wine rack where the door hits the front of another cabinet … my door hits the front of my oven. Things like that irk me … why would someone even create a cabinet like that? And the upper cabinets … ugh! The top shelf blind corner just doesn’t exist for me … I’m not eeeeeven trying to store anything in THAT corner. Plus, I am 5 feet 1 inch tall …

        All I can think of is buying a large 16 inch Lazy Susan to sit at the bottom of that cabinet and a smaller one for the shelf that’s inside. Kitchen renovation is not an option because I will probably move when my lease ends in March (just moved back to Illinois & renting until I decide where I want to put down roots/buy). Sorry for the rant. Any ideas?

  7. Jen on October 21, 2014 at 1:10 am

    A little disappointed with this article. Are there really ZERO solutions for the UPPER corner cupboard…that don’t involve you building your own house or altering your rental kitchen?!? Really depressing…

    If you have written the post you mentioned where you said you’d tackle it, can you please leave a link here in the comment thread?

    • Annie on December 7, 2014 at 12:03 pm

      Hi Jen,
      one possible solution is to go for a corner organizer, like this: http://bit.ly/1yYti2U
      Hope that helps!

    • Sonya on June 9, 2015 at 5:00 pm

      I have an upper corner cabinet, it is to the right of my stove. It has a lazy susan in it and I use it for my multitude of spices, cake coloring etc. Keep them in alphabetical order, works great.

      • Annie on June 12, 2015 at 8:07 am

        Love that you have a lazy susan happening. And the alphabetical order no less!!

    • Brian Wells on September 13, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      Dear Jen
      Two baskets or trays per shelf will do the trick. Leave on half alone and treat as a normal cupboard. The other side pull one basket right out, then move the other basket/shelf from the corner, across, access, and then slide back, then replace front basket/tray. If I was your partner I would build for you.
      Cheers
      Brian

    I don’t know if any of these pictures address the problem the reader who wrote in was talking about. Not if she was talking about the “true blind cabinet” that Heidi mentions above. I would love to have any of the “problem” cabinets above! A lazy susan is of no use in a true blind cabinet. I can’t remodel, because I rent. Is there nothing that can be done with the cabinet I have? Do I just have to resign myself to having to empty out half the cupboard every time I need something from the back?

  11. Lorie on January 7, 2015 at 4:57 am

    My blind corner is from the 60’s era and measures almost 4 feet deep.As a pretty handy and resourceful person I am dumbfounded by this stupid cabinet. I cleaned it out last week and now only my crockpot lives there. With the door at just 13 inches I will still lose a lot of space no matter what shelve system I decide on. Love the drawers for that angle but I would lose the cabinet that sits next to it.

  12. Annie on January 7, 2015 at 12:15 pm

    What GREAT ideas!! The pie shaped turntables (lazy susan) you have pictured in the 3rd picture is exactly what i’m looking for. I have have 2 separate shelves like is shown in that picture and don’t want a lazy susan with the pole in the middle. Any idea where I can find something like this or exactly what it’s called? The link now goes to a lazy susan with the pole in the middle. This is my most troublesome cabinet and I cannot thank you enough for this post!!

    When it comes to choosing corner cabinet always settle for durability. Durable cabinet would last for a very long time which is ideal for both modern kitchen design. And also corner cabinets should be properly designed to fit on the right places of the kitchen just like what this site is trying to discuss http://www.impalakitchens.com.au/ideas-kitchen-corner-cupboards/

  18. Margaret on April 18, 2015 at 10:02 pm

    Had the large, centre pole lazy susan. When spinning the shelves to reach items, stuff went flying off and jammed up the whole operation. Finally gave it up when the shelves acquired a life of their own and kept sliding down the pole and collapsing into each other. My advice – nail the, usually folding access door, shut and fugeddabout it. Can’t win em all. Margaret.

  19. Mary Coady on April 10, 2016 at 12:32 pm

    I’ve installed two base corner cabinets, each with a two-shelf lazy susan. I think it’s the kidney variety (no pole). They are 32″ in diameter measuring from outside the rim, 30.5″ measuring from inside the rim. The cut out area is about 16″ deep x approximately 10.5″ inches at the widest point of the cut out. I am looking for shelf liners (total of four) for the lazy susans. They are wood, and I plan to use one as a pantry and want to keep it clean. I plan to use the other for pots and don’t want to scratch the surface. Have you seen any shelf liners for cabinet lazy susans? Where to find them?

    • Anna Hartley on April 25, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      The blind corner optimizer, #4 is the LeMans by Kessebohmer Clever Storage. The item is sold at local kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide. Just tell your kitchen dealer you are looking for the LeMans!

  20. Jenny on May 3, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    Great post Annie, personally I think that battery-operated stick-on tap light idea is brilliant! We’ll definitely experiment with it in our kitchen designs over at Sydney Style Kitchens.

  21. Harry on May 3, 2016 at 6:31 pm

    I’ve always wondered what’s the best strategy to target those corners, thanks for this Annie.

  22. Mike on May 22, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    I am dealing with a blind cabinet, but with a different twist. It is a 36″ cabinet with a 10″ door. It is cornered with a cabinet of drawers, so the lazy Susan wouldn’t work.
    However the back of the cabinet is not against a wall. It creates a small,island type sey up.
    My thought is to take the back off an install sliding by-pass doors or to install a 2 door cabinet front on the back. Then install pull out shelves.
    Now I have never attempted a project like this, but when I’ve talked with several places that do cabinet work they kind of looked at me like I had 2 heads.
    Is this possible? Where would I look for someone that could do this?

  23. mrsben on July 30, 2016 at 9:49 am

    Not to offend, this is an excellent article provided you have the type of blind corners like you have featured that involve two adjacent openings. That said; for those who have only a small opening on a single run — search: http://savingthefamilymoney.com/diy-blind-corner-cabinet-fix which may help you out. Though not as elaborate as those above, it may be a solution for you and better then what you do have. -Brenda-

    • Annie on August 8, 2016 at 9:33 am

      Not offensive in the slightest! Thanks for linking to this fab solution!

  24. Karen on April 2, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Thank you for the last link because with 11 inches for the opening only on the blind cabinet, nothing else worked and 22 square inches of wasted space to the blind side was my problem too! Some cookie sheets are wider than 11 inches!

  25. Don Olson on June 9, 2017 at 12:17 pm

    I’m remodeling my kitchen. At the blind corner there is a drawer and shelves below (which go WAY back!), and turning right, another drawer and shelves below, then a cooktop to the right. If I install lazy susans, I lose my two drawers, which I need. I would prefer rollout trays instead of the bottom shelves, so I’ll probably try to do that. I’m building the carcasses from 3/4″ plywood, using a table saw, and plan to order the rest (doors, drawers, rollouts, and drawer fronts).

  26. Shauna on September 6, 2018 at 6:31 pm

    I have two blind corner cabinets (one in the kitchen and one in the laundry room) both equipped with hinged folding doors and wooden lazy Suzans affixed to a center pole, and I HATE them both! Because they are a round shape in a square space, there are huge areas of wasted space. I often envision how much more efficiently the space could be used with a couple of well-placed, not-too-deep shelves. I found this post while searching for ideas to dump the lazy Susans. Has anyone successfully removed their lazy Susan and found they liked it better?

  27. Shauna on September 6, 2018 at 6:35 pm

    I have two blind corner cabinets (one in the kitchen and one in the laundry room), both equipped with hinged folding doors and wooden lazy Susans affixed to metal poles, and I hate them both! Since they are round shelves in a square space, I see huge areas of wasted space and fantasize about replacing the lazy Susans with a couple of well-placed, not-too-deep shelves to make better use of the storage. I found this post while searching for ideas on removing a lazy Susan! Has anyone swapped theirs out for shelves and been happier?

  28. Penelope Smith on January 9, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    This is some really good information about cabinetry for a kitchen. I want to remodel my kitchen this spring. It is good to know that I should think about how functional everything is. That is good for me to know because I would love to have a lot of storage in my cabinets.

    I have two blind corner cabinets (one in the kitchen and one in the laundry room) both equipped with hinged folding doors and wooden lazy Suzans affixed to a center pole, and I HATE them both! Because they are a round shape in a square space, there are huge areas of wasted space. I often envision how much more efficiently the space could be used with a couple of well-placed, not-too-deep shelves. I found this post while searching for ideas to dump the lazy Susans. Has anyone successfully removed their lazy Susan and found they liked it better?

    This is some really good information about cabinetry for a kitchen. I want to remodel my kitchen this spring. It is good to know that I should think about how functional everything is. That is good for me to know because I would love to have a lot of storage in my cabinets.
