Question Kitchen Upper Corner Cabinet

I am building my kitchen cabinets and I would like to know how to get the measurements for the upper corner cabinet sides so that I would end up with a 30" door opening. I know that they are 24" standard. I want to put a 30" hood under it to go over my stove. I am attempting to put my stove in the corner instead of along a straight wall. Has anyone ever done this, and would it be possible to do so without making it look crazy? The depth of the cabinets are 12 inches, height is 31".

I only see one problem, in that the space behind your stove will be massive, and you will lose valuable floor space in the process. If that is not a problem, then, OK. As far as the corner cabinet goes, the rails will be a total of 30", and the 12" sides will be attached to it at 45 degrees. The two backs will be defaulted equally to the center of the cabinet. Here, again, there will be alot of space in this cabinet as well, and may take a step stool to utilize it. Physically lay this out on cardboard and hold it up to the wall to get a good visualization.

Placing sinks and stoves in corners restrict movement. It is not recommended. The stove is the heart of the kitchen. A lot of movement occurs around the stove and ample space is needed.

Stove should be placed in a location for an efficient work triangle. This may vary depending on type of kitchen layout. For sample layouts and recommended stove placements, go to
