Storing items in previously unused spaces is much easier now than in kitchens designed several years ago. Blind corner cabinets now have accessory units that provide access to space we could not use in the past, by using half-circle shelves or slide-out trays. Spices and other small items can now be stored vertically behind fillers in pull-out shelves. Additionally, tilt-down trays in sink bases can hide cleaning supplies normally found behind the sink on the counter.
