60 years ago my father remodeled a 50-year old house. In the corner of the kitchen cabinets, he angled the front of the counter with angled cabinets below and above that had good-sized doors and a lazy-susan in each cabinet. Plus, he put in a drawer above the lower cabinet that was extra long and held plenty of utensils that wouldn't fit in ordinary drawers. The counter over these cabinets was extra deep, so we stored the heavy electric mixer in the back of the corner. To this day I've never seen a kitchen that utilized a corner cabinet situation like he did. So much storage and counter space!

I dislike corner cabinets, so when we built our house, we put a double oven in the corner, with two drawers below the oven, and one large cabinet above the oven to hold roasters, etc. I loved it!
