Cleveland home and business owners often fail to use all of the space available in their kitchens, especially in their cabinets. Most of this unused space exists in lower cabinets where it is more difficult for people to bend and reach items. At Kitchen Cabinet Outlet Cleveland, we have a variety of solutions to this problem among our stock of affordable cabinets.
Corner drawers and turnstile shelves
The corners of lower cabinets represent one of the biggest problems that people deal with in traditional cabinet designs. A corner might be blocked off entirely or combined with a large rectangular area that is only accessible via a cabinet door located at the opposite end of the rectangle. Corner drawers and tiered turnstile shelves make full use of this space and provide effortless access.
Under cabinet pullout shelves and bins
Modern designers also utilize pullout shelving and bin designs to deal with corner and deep cabinet boxes. A pullout shelf is simply a solid or wire shelf on full extension glides that pulls out easily from the cabinet. Pullout bin units replace cabinet shelves entirely and typically consist of wire racks that hold trash, recycling and storage bins. Some countertop designs even allow you to place open disposal holes in the counters so that you can toss trash and recycling items directly into the bins without opening the lower cabinet doors.
Inset countertop storage and cutting boards
Lastly, plenty of unused space exists in lower cabinets high above shelves. With some thick countertops, it is possible to create a recessed spot for spices, cookbooks or herbs by mounting a surface below the counter and then cutting a square, rectangle or circle out of the countertop. Some designs also allow for a pullout cutting board right below the counter surface.
