When you’re planning a kitchen, corners are often a point of contention.  What do you do with them?  Do you try to use the space or void it?  And how do you access those deep, dark recesses of your corner cupboard when you need to?  We’ve got a couple of ideas that might give you a new perspective on this age-old dilemma.  

If you’re looking for a standard bifold door unit, take a look at the stylish units offered by Hafele, like the Mondo version pictured below.  These high-quality, soft-close units are a perfect way to use a symmetric kitchen corner – and to make these corner cabinets even more user-frendly, you can add interior LED lighting to ensure that you can always put your hands on exactly what you need!

If you want to increase your utilisation of space with great access, a Le Mans unit could be just what you’re looking for.  The trays swing out of the corner space independently of one another, giving unrivalled access to every item stored – even those tucked right in at the back.

As far as clever inventions go, it’s hard to beat the new space corner drawers from BLUM.  Designed to provide a flexible, user-friendly alternative to traditional corner cabinets, these drawers are proving very popular.  Standard components can be used with this drawer system and the dimensions are flexible within the recommended width of between 900mm and 1200mm.

This fourth solution for the corner is incorporating a standard cabinet underneath the breakfast bar/island, with access from the other side (if this suits your kitchen configuration).  This is useful for storing all the crockery you only pull out on special occasions.

Of course, each of these solutions have their own price points, so it’s good to have a discussion with your designer to identify the option that best meets your need and budget.
