What Is A Magic Corner Unit and How Does It Work?

Every kitchen needs a pantry or cupboard, storage cabinets, drawers, shelves, hooks, rods – the whole array of kitchen storage solutions. With all the utensils, pots, pans, food processing equipment, food and kitchen supplies, and all sorts of kitchenware, you always seem to run out of space in the kitchen. When you want to maximize your available kitchen space, you come across the magic corner

What Is A Magic Corner Unit?

A magic corner is a smartly engineered kitchen corner storage solution designed with a slide-out mechanism that allows easy access to stuff your store in that blind corner under the kitchen counter. A magic corner unit usually consists of four trays or baskets — two front trays and two rear trays — held by a frame that is equipped with a sliding mechanism affixed to the cabinet wall and door. 

How The Magic Happens in the Magic Corner?

The sliding mechanism is simple yet ingenious, and that’s where the “magic” happens. Now the magic corner is set up this way: the front trays are mounted to the cabinet door and supported by a sliding frame on the adjoining side wall; the rear trays are supported by a sliding frame on the back wall of the cabinet.

Pulling the door open brings out the front trays that glide along the side wall of the cabinet. This same action pulls a swing drawbar that is attached to the rear trays’ sliding frame, so that the rear trays glide to the left/right in front of the door. So when the cabinet door is fully opened in one smooth motion, voila – you have all four trays in front of you.
