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.
Now, concentrate on the decoration. The decoration and molding of these cabinets should make them look heavy. This is the first rule. To make them look massive, you need to put on heavy crown molding. You also need to give special attention to the height. You can also have them reaching all the way to the height of your ceiling, while you get the walls behind the kitchen countertops with vertically-installed groove boards and simple tongues. You also need to give special attention to the knobs, handles, hinges, pulls, latches, covers, locks, and keys.
Mostly, these cabinets have standard dimensions, as manufactured by companies. You may need to alter them depending on your individual needs, however, it can be more expensive, and also time-consuming. Once you know the standard dimensions, you can design your kitchen accordingly, saving the time and money that goes into customizing the cabinets.
