Hmmm......an interesting interpertation of geometry. I start in the corner at the 'backsplash area'.
I'm seeing more and more of 2 circuit, 6" o/c plugmold in the McKitchens. 6" above countertop, flush within the backsplash.
(Corian, granite, etc., all expensive, all tastefully installed)
BTW, 'McKitchen' is the $$$$$$ kitchen in the famous New Jersey McMansions. No legal connection with the hamburger chain with the 'golden arches'.
On a serious note...I start in the corner.
