Try A Turntable: Easy Access To Under Cabinet Storage

Try A Turntable: Easy Access To Under Cabinet Storage

Turntables in home decor are usually found one of three places. Either in your rec room spinning the latest tunes, on your kitchen counter holding oils, salts and other spices, or lastly in those pesky corner cabinets where your favorite box of cereal always seems to get stuck.

Instead, try using them in a new spot — under your kitchen and bathroom sink!

Under-sink storage can be tricky. Most often we turn to tubs or drawers that slide out, but let's face it, that never turns out well. You slide the drawer or tub out and everything in it falls to the front making a mess of things.

Instead, we ran across this fun turntable from The Container store (for $29.99) that holds up to 150lbs when the weight is distributed evenly. This means it's perfect for holding heavy liquid products like soaps and cleansers and makes things easy by spinning them around where everything stays in place.

The bit of storage space left behind the turntable (because we all know it's on our mind!) could be used for those items that we keep in bulk or don't use all that often. For instance, curlers that you keep on hand for when your hair grows out (even though it's currently short) or that shaving kit your mother gave you for Christmas that you haven't gotten around to using yet.

What do you think of the idea? Share your thoughts on its practicality in the comments below!
