What is the width of cabinets in corner, is there enough space to open without hitting range hood?

I am putting a 30 ' range/range hood close to a corner, and I'm concerned about the protrusion of the range hood, as well as, the corner looking cramped/crowded by the range hood.

The upper cabinets that flank the range hood are about 12" wide (slightly less because of 2" corner scribe @ far right side and 3/4" side/end panel @ far left.
The upper cabinet doors swing away from the hood.
Ideally there would be more room at the sides of the range and hood (say 24" minimum on each side) but this was a super tiny house with very tight tolerances so we eeked out every last inch we could. The biggest challenge was finding under-cabinet light fixtures that fit within the underside of these skinny cabinets (allowing uniform task lighting at the counter surfaces).

Thanks! What about the other cabinet in the "L", the one next to the one flanking the hood, does it bump the hood when opened? (Sorry, I didn't describe this well before)! Thanks.

Now I understand, if I remember correctly we made the adjacent upper cabinet doors unequal widths so the one closest to the corner just squeaked past the range hood without hitting it, and the door closest to the sink was slightly wider than usual

Thank you! And great looking kitchen! It's nice to see good options for small spaces.

All lower cabinets have approx. 3" scribes so there is no conflict with drawer and adjacent drawers ( or in this case, oven door handle)
