Most people pay a lot of attention to the designing of kitchens, since they typically turn out to become family rooms where everyone gathers for meals. Designing a kitchen comes with the responsibility of planning its layout, and also figuring out the positioning of the refrigerator, microwave, and other such kitchenware along with the placement of the cabinets. In order to ensure proper placement, you need to know the dimensions of kitchen cabinets.
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.
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.
