Nowadays freestanding cabinets are so rarely seen in kitchens that when they do appear they look unusual, unnatural and intriguing. There was a time, however, when everything in the kitchen was free and movable and that included both appliances and furniture, the only exception being the sink. In the 1940s, however, came a period when freestanding kitchen cabinets were considered highly impractical and out of fashion and when the style we now consider conventional was favored. Right now we’re seeing a comeback of freestanding cabinetry and we’re rediscovering all the things that made them so appealing in the first place.
If you don’t like the pointy shape of the blind corner pull-outs we just showed you, there are alternatives and a lot of them avoid those 90 degree angles in favor of a more cohesive and fluid design. This eclectic kitchen shows just how practical this design direction can be. This diagonal cabinet includes drawers at the bottom, room for the microwave oven other small appliances above the counter and some open space at the top. There’s even some counter space left too.
If you don’t want to clutter your kitchen with closed corner cabinets you can opt for open shelves instead. These too can allow you to make good use of a corner space. Install several shelves to create a sort of open pantry. It can be framed by regular cabinets on either side or it can occupy an empty part of the kitchen. Either way, it’s better than a dead corner.
