Quick Tip: Lazy Susans to the Rescue.
I LOVE a good Lazy Susan. There are no two ways around it.
I find that I use them most in the kitchen, but they're useful anywhere. Some great places to implement them are:
- Collecting many smaller objects in one location while keeping everything visible, like spices.
- Awkward negative spaces in poorly designed pantries.
- To make full use of the shelving in a corner.
- To take advantage of the full space behind a narrow cabinet door.
The options can be quite endless.
Whenever you purchase one, you'll want to look for a couple things:
- Make sure it slides around well without going off balance. You don't want to knock everything over while getting to your cumin.
- Measure the space to fit. Not only the diameter to the shelf width, but also for height. Tall bottles that fit in a shelf may not do so when propped up on the Lazy Susan.
If you have an area that is awkward and you can't see everything in it, take a Lazy Susan for a test run and see if that will make better use of the space!
