15 Feb Basic Corner Cabinet Style Options
When it comes to smaller kitchens or any kitchens with unique design layouts, one of the largest challenges in terms of choosing cabinets is often the corner cabinet. No one wants to leave dead space in the corner after installing custom RTA cabinets in the rest of the kitchen, but choosing which corner style to use can be a challenge.
At Knotty Alder Cabinets, we’re here to help. In general, you’ll have three broad choices for corner cabinet style. Here are some basics on each of the three.
Diagonal Corner/Lazy Susan
Generally, in the 36-inch size, the Lazy Susan style is pretty simple and requires the same amount of space on each wall. This might not be the most practical option for a very small kitchen, as these cabinets are generally a bit larger.
For kitchens where it does fit, though, the diagonal corner is a great design. The Lazy Susan part of the design is optional – you can remove the rotating tray if you want, and some models are already made this way in the first place.
Blind Base Cabinet
For the best flexibility when it comes to your space, the blind base cabinet is the way to go. They only require you to leave a very small amount of space on one wall, but then a larger amount of space on the opposite wall. You have to consider leaving a bit of dead space for the door and drawer to function correctly, and you’ll need a three-inch filler on the opposite wall for there to be enough room.
Corner Sink/Face Cabinet
For a kitchen that needs a corner sink base RTA Cabinet, an angled front or corner sink face cabinet is the way to go. Depending on how handy you are you may be able to purchase a corner face rather than the entire cabinet. Remember this Cabinet brings a lot of functionality and style to your dream kitchen
