Ah, the blind corner cabinet... One of the best and worst storage tools found in any kitchen. On one hand, blind corner cabinets help you get the most usage out of all available corner space.

If your countertops only have a few prep or cooking items stored on them, your kitchen isn’t as clean-looking as it could be and it’s certainly not as healthy as you might think.

If you regularly dust, glossy plastics and shiny metals on countertop items can still become dull and sticky from exposure. This grimy buildup happens so organically with daily kitchen usage that it can actually seem normal over time.
