Question adding small storage cubbys E21

Looking for a couple of spots to possibly add a smallish storage cubby inside our new 21. Wife wants a cubby big enough to hole an i-phone 10..about 3.5" across and we are looking at possibly mounting a holder up on the overhead cabinet above the front bed.
Does anyone know the width of that space from the Driver Side upper corner cabinet (near the reading lite) TO the edge of the door on that front UPPER cabinet? Looking for a spot to place a cubby [for holding i-phone, etc], and I do not want to put something up there on a padded wall or buy anything too wide to fit there.
Thanks in advance.
Fred

The width to the right of the outlet is 8 1/4".

Another more central area, over the drawer stack, would be where I put in a panel.

WE do not HAVE a drawer stack per se....we deleted that piece of counter top and added a 2nd large "wardrobe" atop the 2-drawer stack, giving us two large "wardrobes" along the driver's side of the trailer.
We wd prefer to put a small ' storage cubby' up on the face of the front "overhead cabinet" at the driver side end of it, but so far I cannot tell how wide is that space, from the front cabinet door to that corner.

You may have weight limits on the o/h, even an extra 1-2 lbs hanging on the outside of the cabinet or underneath, bouncing along may cause other issues....

This is the answer to your question. Do you mean hanging underneath the overhead cabinet?

No I mean the vertical (rear-facing) slab of wood to the drivers side of the front, upper cabinet door..that space from the corner to the door I was thinking of mounting a small cubby there if there is room.
