I also included some more need-to-know information about blind corner cabinets and organizers throughout this article.
Ok, let’s get into it…
How to Choose a Blind Corner Organizer
Blind corner organizers can look a bit complicated. Don’t get me wrong…they can be more complex installations than your typical pull out baskets or other storage organizers.
Here’s are few helpful things to keep in mind when selecting a pull out blind corner organizer:
Do you have existing shelves inside the cabinet?
You’ll most likely have to take any existing shelves out of the blind corner cabinet before installing a pull out organizer. There are some organizers that do mount to an existing shelf, but most require and use the whole space.
Choosing the right size
This is where the most headaches occur. All blind corner cabinet sizes are not made the same. This is something to watch out for when selecting a pull out organizer for this type of cabinet.
Measure the opening width of the cabinet as well as all inside dimensions. The organizer will need to fit within these dimensions for optimal operation.
Watch out for interfering applicances
This is something to consider when choosing a blind corner organizer. The organizer will either swing out towards the left or swing out towards the right.
Having the organizer swing out can potentially interfere with appliances that operate next to the blind corner cabinet. Be sure to double check for compatibility with product dimensions and where you will place it within your kitchen.
Do I Have a Blind Left or Blind Right Cabinet?
This is one question to take note of if you are on the search for a blind corner organizer. Some manufacturers explain the differences in various ways. Take look at our article on this very subject.
The bottom line? Where is the dead space in the blind corner cabinet. Is it back left or back right. That is your “blind” area.
Here’s a simple way to look at it…
- If the organizer swings out left, it’s a blind right.
- If the organizer swings out right, it’s a blind left.
How Do You Organize a Blind Corner Cabinet
Blind corner organizers come in a number of “styles” and shapes. These characteristics reflect in the price and also in the overall functionality of the space. Here are some ideas on how to get blind corners organized with interior cabinet accessories.
1. Chrome Wire Pull Out Baskets
I always recommend getting a square basket organizer, since the blind corner cabinet is shaped as such, it’s a nice use of the overall cabinet space.
2. Two-Tier Swing Out Trays
Most blind corner organizers will have multiple “tiers” or shelves that swing out. As blind corner cabinets are often full height base cabinets, using multiple trays is always a great option for lots of storage.
3. Traditional Pie-Cut Lazy Susan
These are a bit old fashioned, but still a mainstay in lots of kitchens. These types of corner cabinet accessories mount to the inside of the cabinet and also to the cabinet door. When in use, the cabinet door will then rotate inside of the cabinet.
4. Pivot Out Wood Trays
Shelves that pivot out are also a nice option for storing heavier items as it’s a little more stable than some trays that swing out and extend far out of the blind cabinet space.
5. Corner 90 Degree Drawers
Using false front drawers on corner cabinets is also a unique solution. The shelves will slide out at an angle providing great storage opportunities.
Who Has The Best Blind Corner Cabinet Organizer
There are two ways you often come across blind corner organizers and pull out storage accessories in general:
- Cabinet manufacturers who include them within their cabinets when ordered.
- Brands that offer them as a retro-fit option or for DIY’ers who want to install into existing cabinets.
Several key brands or manufacturers occupy the storage organizer space today. As you see, we often recommend Rev-A-Shelf products as they are a leader in this particular industry. Other companies like, Clever Storage or Salice have lots of options too.
Here are the brands we like:
Narrow Opening Blind Corner Cabinet Organizer
Blind corner cabinets vary in size. Sometimes we want a pull out organizer to optimize the space, but can’t find one that’ll fit the opening dimensions.
Luckily, there are a couple out there that may work for your application. The dimensions were are referring to are the cabinet opening widths. These range from 12 inches to 18 inches.
I would recommend checking out option number four on our list, the Rev-A-Shelf 4WLS Series blind corner organizers. This product may work for you in a narrower cabinet that has a 12 inch or greater cabinet opening.

The best part is that it can be used on a blind left or a blind right cabinet. It features four square baskets. Having square baskets means you are getting a product that takes advantage of the blind corner space.

There are some nuances to these particular “blind corner” pull out organizers. Blind corner cabinets can be a tricky space to work within. Most products can fit inside of standard blind corner cabinet width of 42″, 45″ and 48″.
As these organizers can be retrofitted into an existing cabinet, be sure to note down both the dimensions of your blind corner cabinet and the size requirements that the organizer needs to work properly.
My final conclusion is that I still really like the overall simplicity and ease of installation we get from the Rev-A-Shelf 5PSP Series product.
Don’t let these quirky storage organizers scare you away. Again as long as you triple check your inner cabinet dimensions with what the actual specifications are of the blind corner organizers you will have no problem.
