Have a cabinet in the corner of your kitchen? Here’s how to organize a corner cabinet to make the most of the space you have.
Whether you have a large or a small kitchen, you still want to make the most of all of your cabinets. Corner cabinets can be notoriously hard to organize.
Whether you need upper corner kitchen cabinet organization ideas or for lower cabinets, these ideas and tips will help you make the best use of those corner kitchen cabinets.
How to Organize a Corner Cabinet
When it comes to corner cabinets, they are great because they offer so much space.
The problem with them, while they have a lot of space, is that they are awkward.
I suggest finding a way to make the most out of the space that is available – and don’t let weird angles intimidate you!
Lazy Susan for the Win
Most corner cabinets are equipped with a Lazy Susan. The Lazy Susan is a rounded type plate that sits at the bottom of the cabinet. Sometimes there are two, one on each shelf, but the concept is the same.
It spins to let you use all of the space in the cabinet, while still allowing you to see what is in the back. The best part is that you can see what you have without having to take everything out of the cabinet to get to what you want.
A Lazy Susan is one of those things that people either love or hate. Some people hate the Lazy Susan because things can fall off the plate and then get stuck in the back. When that happens, you have to move things around until you get to the stuck item.

But most of the time, a Lazy Susan is helpful. If your cabinet doesn’t have one, you can order it online.
No Lazy Susan Means More Space
When you have a Lazy Susan, you only have so much space to fit items. If you do not have a Lazy Susan, you have more choices on how to use the cabinet.
Store Unused Gadgets in the Back
If you have a favorite kitchen gadget that you can’t part with but that doesn’t get used that often, store it in the back of the corner cabinet.

Use Shelf Risers
A good idea for organizing the corner shelf is to use shelf risers.
Shelf risers let you organize what you are putting in the back of the space. Because the cabinets are usually deep, by using a shelf riser, you can see what is in the back.
Put the Unused Items in the Back
We all have those glasses or plates that, while they’re nice, don’t get used that often.
Our coffee mugs are like that because we have special ones for the holidays that we don’t use daily.
When we were organizing our corner cabinet, we sorted the mugs and put them in with the least used ones in the back. They’re still accessible, but the most frequently used ones are in the front.

Using these ideas to make the best use of corner cabinets will let you organize the cabinet and save yourself time when trying to find what you need.
