What is a Blind Corner Base Cabinet?
A blind corner base cabinet is a cabinet installed in a corner where two cabinet runs meet, and a portion of the cabinet is hidden by the one adjacent to it. The hidden section serves as storage without giving up space in a corner. A blind corner base cabinet is only functional if it is used in conjunction with a filler and an adjacent cabinet.

IS YOUR SMALL KITCHEN CRAMPING YOUR STYLE?
Living with limited kitchen space is not the best case scenario for any culinary connoisseur, baking expert, or DIYer. But, designing the kitchen of your dreams does not have to be restricted by the size or shape of the space you are working with. Transforming any tiny kitchen into a stunning and functional room in your home can be done effortlessly.
So, what qualifies as a small kitchen?
Over the last 50 years kitchen sizes have increased from about 70 to 150 square feet. According to Lee Wallender from Home Renovation’s About Home, generally the “classic 10 x 10 kitchen” (100 square feet or less) is considered the benchmark of small kitchen sizing. The most common small kitchen will be what is considered a galley kitchen. This shape is long and narrow with counters on either side of a central walkway. Though, kitchen sizing is going to differ according to the area you live in, this standard for the average kitchen in 2016 can be useful when planning your own remodel.
