As is the case with base cabinets, the dimensions for wall cabinets are also standard. The height of most wall cabinets differs due to their positioning, and the average range of height is between 12-42 inches. The depth is normally maintained at 12-13 inches. If you are hanging your wall cabinet above the countertop, you would normally need to place it almost 54 inches from the floor, and if it is hanging above the stove, then it needs to be at least 24 inches higher than where the stove is placed.
This is extremely important to prevent any mishaps in the kitchen. With a soffit, the height of a wall cabinet generally tends to be around 30 inches, and without a soffit, it measures to about 42 inches. The width of wall cabinets should, as much as possible, match the width of the base cabinet. Having similar dimensions, especially where width is concerned, gives the kitchen a sense of uniformity, and enhances its decor.
Pine wood, when polished with glossy texture, adds a sophisticated look. Light-colored semi-glossy varnishes adds to the room's brightness. These cabinets can be cleaned by wiping with dry cloth or by mopping. You can prepare a homemade solution by adding equal cups of olive oil to white vinegar and diluting it with water. Rub this solution with a cloth to clean the cabinets from dust and stains.
