How to make high kitchen cabinets more accessible
Part of organizing your kitchen is making efficient use of your storage space. Many kitchens have high cabinets that make it difficult to access goods sitting at the back of the cabinet comfortably.
If you are not using your high kitchen cabinets because of this, consider installing a Lazy Susan. There are pros and cons in using one of these.
On the positive side, it makes it easy to access the entire contents of the cabinet by rotating the Lazy Susan. On the negative side, you are using a round storage device in a rectangular space. This means you are sacrificing some usable space for convenience and accessibility. That said, go and get a step ladder and take a look at how you are using that space now. Most of you will find you are under-utilizing the space already, or have placed items in there that you haven't used in over 6 months.
The great thing about these cabinet Lazy Susans is that they are inexpensive, so if it doesn't work for you, you haven't wasted a lot of money. Make sure that you measure the depth and width of your cabinet. Most cabinets will just fit a 12" Lazy Susan, but get a measuring tape and check. You may wish to opt for a smaller 9" model. Some newer homes have 15" upper cabinets meaning you can most likely fit a slightly larger model if you can find one.
Don't forget that with many cabinets you can fit two of these next to each other. Again, make sure you measure the cabinet before you buy. Remember, their is no point having tons of cabinet space if it is not easily accessible.
