Starting with base corner cabinets, we have: (1) the symmetrical easy reach — this cabinet is the same length on both sides of the corner and contains either shelves along its back walls or a carousel with shelves “pie-cut” to accommodate the doors (a centre hinge allows opening either the first door or both); (2) the asymmetrical easy reach — this cabinet is a little shorter on one leg (if it is a symmetrical easy reach) (to allow better use of the “blind” corner cabinet, some manufacturers have cleverly created a cabinet with a first section which, on opening the door, pulls out and pivots to the side to expose roll-out trays which can then move forward to present their contents).Our website provides info on Northern Prairie Cabinets.
Finally, there’s a sink base corner cabinet that can be a “L-shaped” cabinet to hold a butterfly sink or a diagonal-front cabinet with a standard straight-line sink — a caveat if a corner sink cabinet is used: make sure there’s enough standing room (for loading and unloading the dishwasher) by placing a 12-inch-wide regular cabinet between the dishwasher and the corner cabin. The following are examples of wall corner cabinets: (1) the diagonal-front — this cabinet has a modified pentagon shape (this is the most commonly chosen for this position); (2) the easy reach — this cabinet appears to be two adjoining wall cabinets (it has a centre hinge to allow opening the first door or both and allows direct access to the contents on the shelves); and (3) the blind — half of this cabinet is blind
To summarise, the best choices for cabinets in general, and wall or base corner cabinets in particular, will be determined by the size and shape of the available room, your budget, and the things you intend to store there. Moreover, whether or not you have limitless funds, you should make every effort to: (a) be as well-informed as possible about your cabinet options; and (b) thoroughly examine all of your decisions before ordering any cabinets.
