Corner shelf unit
These handy accessories allow you to make the most of the inside corner of the unit. Easy to install at the base of a cupboard, these units come in a range of different sizes. They're often sold as a set of several trays or shelves with dedicated areas for plates and ustensils, for instance.

They also come in a range of materials, including:
- shock-resistant plastic: strong and hard-wearing
