When it comes to picking out kitchen cabinets, you have a lot of options. And the same is true when it comes to cabinet features. Here’s a look at the top 10 kitchen cabinet accessories that can take your remodel to the next level.
Have you heard of a Super Susan? Or a kitchen tech command center? Those are just a couple of the most sought after kitchen cabinet trends these days. Read on to see our full list of the hottest kitchen cabinet accessories for 2021.
1. Super Susan
You may have heard of a Lazy Susan. It’s a corner cabinet with shelves that rotate along a fixed pole. It gives you easier access to items you store in the cabinet, without having to reach all the way to back of the space. It’s very convenient, but one issue with them is the center pole. It can hamper storage and sometimes may become stiff and difficult to rotate.
Enter the Super Susan. This device features the same storage improvements that a Lazy Susan does, but it does away with the center pole. Instead, it has fixed shelves with an independently rotating Lazy Susan tray that rests on top of them. No pole = easier access to your items.
2. Blind corner pullout
A cousin of the Super Susan is the blind corner pullout. Blind corners are those areas of the kitchen where your cabinets converge, creating corners. Installing a regular cabinet will provide storage, but will make items difficult to access.
A blind corner pullout consists of shelves that extend out from the corner cabinet so you can easily store and grab items you need. They come in a variety of shapes and functions and can be easily retrofitted into an existing cabinet.
3. Pull out shelves
These handy kitchen cabinet accessories are just what they sound like — shelves that slide out from cabinets. They take great advantage of all the available space and allow for easier access to your items. That means no more bending over or stretching back into your cabinets to access those hard-to-reach items. They can be perfect for storing larger kitchen pieces like pots and pans.
4. Pull out peg board
Another clever accessory is an extendable peg board. They are often installed vertically and take up minimal space, sliding sleekly in between other cabinets. The pegs are great for holding pots, pan, and lids or other slender items.
5. Charging drawer / tech command center
If you use an iPad to display recipes, need a place to plug in your smart home device, or simply want an extra place to charge your phone, you may want to consider a charging drawer or kitchen tech command center. Gone are the days of wires and chargers strewn across your home’s surfaces. These tech-y kitchen command centers are a great way to de-clutter you space and keep all of your gadgets in one place.
6. Mixer pull out
This handy device combines with storage plus in-use functionality. Rather than keeping your mixer on your kitchen counter, this accessory allows you to store it neatly away when not in use. When you need it, simply extend the pull out shelf with the mixer resting on it. The shelf then acts as additional counter space.
7. Trash and recycling pull out
Looking to do away with your stand-alone kitchen trash can? Move your waste basket out of sight with an under-counter trash pull out. These useful kitchen cabinet accessories discreetly hide your garbage bin, and can come with a separate area for holding recycling.
8. Slide out or fixed tray dividers
Keep your lids, cutting boards, baking pans, food containers and other smaller items organized with cabinet tray dividers. They help eliminate the need to rummage around in deep cabinets for those matching container lids, and they’re highly customizable. So you can configure them to meet your needs. For more flexibility, opt for a slide out design.
9. Kitchen refrigerator drawer
Need a little extra cold storage in your kitchen? These refrigerated drawers are perfect for storing cans of your favorite beverages, coffee creamer, extra milk cartons, and much more. They can be a handy kitchen cabinet accessory if you find your regular fridge is bursting at the seams.
10. Spice pull out
We’ve all been there. You can never find the paprika when you need it. Make your life easier and your cooking more seamless with a pull out spice drawer. Not only do these slender cabinets put your favorite spices within arms reach, they also free up counter spaces or other cabinets drawers where your spices may have been previously stored.
