We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
Ask yourself these simple questions. How often do I use this item? If regularly used doesn't come top of mind, then toss the item into the garbage or put aside to give to charity. Also, for multiples of the same thing, ask yourself how many do I use? Recently, I found I had multiple wooden spoons, four of them in fact; I really only use 2 of the 4 - why keep 4 when 2 are used? So I put them in a give away pile for charity, in my case Value Village.
There are now many clever solutions for the 'blind kitchen corner cabinet' available. Utilising this area for items that you don't need to access regularly is often the best solution. However, if you don't have the luxury of space then products such as a Lazy Susan (and the pull-out Lazy Susan) can greatly increase the accessible space. A wide range of other solutions are also now available such as sliding, swinging or expanding systems.
