Hi mtoledo,

Here is another opportunity. A creative one on how to use your new half wall space.

You should in addition to your cabinets, consider a foldout desk, table. Either coming down from one side, say 18" wide. than can be brought down, (from right) in your photo, or when needed to increase space, hinged from below. There are many options!

Here are two ways with resources on how to build a foldout desk table, and hinge resources.

Most desk areas that are on top of base cabinets are 24" deep, and the shelving is probably set back 6" from that - so 18" deep shelving.

These look custom to the niche of the wall space, so you could certainly alter this in your home, and make them deeper or shallower.

The base cabinets were built at 24" deep and I had the top portion built at 12" deep. HTH!

I am not sure, custom cabinetry is priced out differently all over the country. I would suggest you contact a local cabinet maker for a quote.
