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.
Base cabinet dimensions are generally in the range of a depth of 24 inches, and a height of 34-42 inches. These differ depending on the design on the cabinets, their positioning, and placement. If you place a countertop, then the cabinet base will be increased to about 36 inches. It is possible to adjust the height of the cabinets, in case, you are tall, and do not want to be stooping too low in order to reach out for things. At a depth of 24 inches, it is easy for everyone to reach into the cabinet for things.
