Problem With Kitchen Layout...

Customer wants pre-fab kitchen cabinent install (something cheap-like Mills Pride or the like) but we are concerned with one corner. In one of the corners there is a 18" by 24" wall chase that houses the chimney for the furnance and hot water heater (why couldn't it be 24x24!?). Well if we put a 24" base cabinet in on the one corner-it will stick out 6 inches into the cabinets on the other wall. Not sure what to do here....have done a few mills pride installs but none with any type of blind corners like this and am curious what is generally done in these situations.

Right now the HO has custom cabinets that look like they were put in by an absolute drunk in the 70s.

Re: Problem With Kitchen Layout...

6'' filler and some fancy work on the top?
Or build the chase out to 26X26
and let everything die into it?
Probably 100 ways,
but that's for a start.
