So I've designed a kitchen for a customer, getting ready to do my final measurements and double checking things before I order when they decided to king of switch things up and go for a staggered heights effect.

I can make all the changes work but as far as the corner cabinet goes it only comes 12" deep, it takes up 24" of space in both directions of the wall from the corner. I'm planning on adding 3" strips of plywood to the back of the cabinet to build it out 15" for the crown from the other cabinets to terminate into and covering that with the cabinet skins.

My question is does this corner cabinet now take up 27" of space in both directions, because it is built out an additional 3 inches from the wall, or is it a lesser amount because of the angle??

Getting this wrong would effect the rest of the dimensions of my cabinets, something I would hate to see happen!

Thanks for any input, i'm probably just over thinking this because its such a big overall job... better safe than sorry.

If I'm reading what you wrote correctly, then yes. Adding 3" to the back on the left side will push the cabinet 3" along the right wall, and adding 3" t the right back will push it 3" toward the left along the wall.

I design wall corners with diagonal doors, boosted at top as Leo shows, but with enough of a drop at bottom so the adjacent wallcab light rails can die into them.

And I always specify those D-shape lazy susans inside.

Thanks for the confirmation guys, it seemed like a pretty straight forward situation, glad i wasnt overlooking anything.

If these are stock cabinets, make sure you take into account the possibility of the 1/4" side panel recess. That could muck it up for you some on your reveals, if you are so inclined to make it right. Adding a 1/4" filler to the side to accommodate that error looks foolish.
