Corner Drawers: 6 Solutions for Awkward Kitchen Spaces

For those hard-to-reach places, there are all kinds of crafty solutions – but for looking integrated with the rest of your kitchen, few beat corner drawers.

These examples help make use of one of the more uncomfortable geometric remnants architects and carpenters run into on a regular basis.

In some cases, there are vertical solutions that can utilize extra areas even more efficiently – but when there is not space in the Z axis, a 45-degree-angled stack of drawers at least uses half of the void leftover space.

The catch: these drawer systems look, for the most part, like regular pull-out drawers – one has to get used to the counter-intuitive direction of their slide, which makes it worth asking: is there an even better way? Sources:  Heritage CabinetryJason Beaver and Blum.
