How to Make a Corner Cabinet in Your Kitchen Work to Your Advantage

The last thing you want to deal with is wasted space in your kitchen. This is particularly true if you have a smaller-than-average space. One of the most common areas in your kitchen for wasted space is in the corners where the recesses are deep. Luckily, there are ways to bypass that and actually create some really useful spaces. Here are several ways to create functional and useful corner cabinets:

1. Built-in TV and Microwave.

More than likely, your microwave is currently sitting on your kitchen counter. This takes up counter space that is needed when dicing onions and kneading bread. Rather than allowing your microwave to sit on the countertop, integrate it into your kitchen corner cabinet design. While you're at it, you might as well throw in a television so that you can watch Wheel of Fortune or the news while you're cooking dinner.

2. Built-in Appliances.

Rather than placing your microwave in the corner space, you may want to consider using that space for built-in appliances, such as the dishwasher or oven. It is likely the perfect dimension for these appliances and is incredibly accessible, even in the smallest of kitchens.

3. Open Shelving or Glass Door Cabinets.

You could also opt to turn your corner space into a display area. Whether you choose to have open shelves or glass doors with adequate accent lighting, you can put your beautiful and colorful dishes on display. It's a great way to use your dishes as a décor element in your kitchen. It provides you with a place for additional storage and increases your counter space. Plus, it makes these dishes easily accessible.

4. Open or Hidden Pantry.

Another option is to use your corner space as a pantry. You can opt to have the pantry open with no door or hidden behind a door, such as a bi-folding door. With an open pantry, you can add corner shelves and cabinetry all around it to frame the area. If you aren't too keen on the idea of everyone being able to see your pantry items, you can opt to hide the space behind closed doors.

Regardless of the way you choose to use your corner space, you will be significantly reducing – and possibly eliminating – wasted space. If you aren't sure how to make the renovations so that you can use this space, be sure to consult with a designer and/or contractor.
