Urgent kitchen advice needed

12th hour of a year-long addition/renovation to a 110 year old home. We are a family of 6 and made some concessions for function over beauty along the way and had to work with the quirks of an old house. But now, when we are ready to do crown mounding and floating shelves decisions, my husband has cold feet. Be warned— this is not a perfectly symmetrical kitchen. And a little less so than we planned. My biggest question is this—if I do a clean white 4x12 subway tile from counter to ceiling (with floating walnut shelves to match lowers) will the awkward corner cabinet/appliance garage look less awkward? That is what my husband is struggling with the most. It looks worse from one entry point more so than other vantage points.
