Default Corner Cabinet solution

I have been trying to decide what I wanted to do with a corner cabinet in my kitchen. I don't really like lazy susans all that much. I saw this photo on facebook and thought that this just might work. What do you think?

I really like that. I'm not a big fan of lazy Susan's either. Either to much wasted space or so much stuff you can easily find things. I do nearly all the cooking at our house and like to easily find what I'm looking for.

Hey, Roxanne; where ya been, Girl? You've been missed!

Here's a thought on a variation of that.
Use a single folding door, and pullouts rather than drawers...or maybe a combination(?).
I think it'd make accessibility a bit easier.

I have seen that pic before. Are you remodeling your cabinets or just in the thinking/design stage of a remodel? Or...what?

In our kitchen, we built new diagonal corners. That blind spot really is a waste of space.

Our drawers pull straight out. And yes, there is still some wasted space, but it is what it is.

It seems to me, you would have to modify an adjacent cabinet or maybe both adjacent cabinets to build something like you have pictured.

Here are our drawers. 28 inch drawer slides (100# rating) allow the drawers to pull out fully.

Hope this helps.
Mike

They work fine. There are some pics of the corner drawers I built in projects. I will say they are a pain to build but they use the room well and a damn good conversation piece.

"...and a damn good conversation piece."

Especially with that built-in babe that hands you what you were looking for!

@Roxanne562001
Check out this video. They address the blind corner at the 2:49 mark.

I really like this idea now that I've seen it . Much better storage solution IMO .

The corner ones look neat too though , and like Fire mentioned , certainly a conversation piece

I like your idea Mike but can the "wasted space" not somehow be utilized as a hidden safe or hiding place? a kitchen cupboard is the last place a criminal will look for any valuables such as cash or weapons etc?
