Planning a new kitchen cabinet installation to put the finishing touch on a big remodel? Good for you! New cabinets designed to your own specifications will make your kitchen much more enjoyable and functional with space to store everything you need.
If you’re designing your own custom kitchen cabinets it’s going to be tempting to start by picking out colors, door styles, and hardware. While these choices get the most attention, there is one other very important decision that needs to be made before you can get to the fun stuff.
What Height Should My Cabinet Be?
You might be asking if there is a standard kitchen cabinet height. Great question! The standard height for a kitchen cabinet is 36” from floor to countertop. 36” puts the counter at just the right height for nearly everyone. While this is the measurement all standard cabinets are built to there are a few situations where you might need a custom height for your kitchen countertops.
There is an emerging trend in the cabinet design world known as mid-height cabinets. These cabinets, between 40 to 60 inches tall are great for adding additional drawers or placement of a microwave or oven.
Table Height Cabinets
More and more homeowners are looking to add a workspace in their kitchens. Great for a computer workstation or homework desk for the kids, table height cabinets should be built to a height of 30 inches.
