Corner cupboards in kitchens tend not to work very well. “Lazy Susan’s’ help but it’s still not easy to store and find. The owners of this kitchen decided to remove their lazy susan with specially designed drawers that can make the space more functional.
A corner cupboard without even a lazy Susan setup is very awkward to use. Yes, you can access all the space, but only with considerable difficult. Enter the ‘lazy Susan”… it’s certainly easier to access items, but you’ll find that the rotation can knock off some of the items in the storage trays. That’s because you inevitably end up stacking things trying to maximise the space. Sound familiar? Building specialized drawers for corner cupboards is a better option as it provides easier access without having to knock off items. And drawers also allow better use of the vertical space. Sure you lose access to some of the cupboard space, but you do with a lazy Susan as well.
