Plus this homeowner did not like the look of tile and wanted few seams to show in her kitchen. She also wanted all her appliances tucked away off the counter. Thus the appliance garage. We also recessed the paper towel holder in the bottom of the wall cabinet because visually she didnt want anything distracting the horizontal lines of the wall cabinets. It worked out well!

How deep is the microwave cabinet? How deep are the other cabinets moving toward the corner? We have a very similar setup, and I want to make sure that the deeper microwave cabinet doesn't make the area feel/look strange. This picture looks nice.

Hi, the microwave cab is 18 (+/-) deep followed by 12" deep wall cabinets. The corner angled wall cabinet is also 12 deep and 24" wide on each end. It all blends together seemlessly.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Creative Ways to Cope with Corners
Corners on top of the counter are great places to store bulky appliances. Build a little appliance garage into the corner to hide them from view.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Straight-Up Advice for Corner Spaces
While we love our appliances, they don’t necessarily need to be in plain sight. Hide them by building a little storage nook in the corner of your countertop.
