Home Standard dimensions of kitchen cabinets Standard dimensions of kitchen cabinets Once you’ve selected the types of kitchen cabinets you want, the next step is to determine how they will be configured to fit your floor plan. The number and the measurements of the cabinets you will need in your kitchen depend on a variety of factors. The most important will be the location of and the relationship between key work centers in the kitchen. Placing the sink, refrigerator, cook top, ovens, and microwave oven comes first; their placement will determine where the kitchen cabinets can be situated. All kitchen cabinet measurements should be double checked against the manufacturer’s specifications for the appliances you select. Otherwise, there is a danger that they won’t fit properly without major adjustments during installation or won’t fit at all without ordering a new kitchen cabinet component. Individual Needs for Kitchen Cabinets Second in importance is the degree of singularity of your plan and your individual needs. Unless your plan is highly unusual, you probably will be able to use various configurations of stock and semi custom kitchen cabinets to provide storage that is efficient and attractive. Custom-made kitchen cabinets, using other-than-standard widths, heights, and depths, is required only for an installation that is unique or in which standard height countertops and wall cabinets cannot accommodate the needs of the very tall or very short cook or household member with physical limitations. Personal Taste in Kitchen Cabinets Third, you must know your own taste. Do you like open shelving at the end of cabinet runs? Do you like the visual interest of a run of kitchen cabinets with varying depths? Do you prefer a sleeker look with built-in appliances? Do you prefer drawers for pot storage under the cook top? Do you want shelves or pullout drawers behind cabinet doors? Stock kitchen cabinets are planned on the assumption that they will be accommodating standard-height work surfaces and appliances. The standard countertop is 36 inches high, which is comfortable for the “average” person and accommodates standard dish­washer, oven/cook top, and trash compactor installations. Of course, plans can be drawn and fixtures installed for those who prefer higher or lower work-surface heights. Typical Kitchen Cabinet Dimensions Base cabinets – typically 24″ deep (also 12″, 15″, 18″) and 34 1/2″ tall (countertops add 1 1/2″ to make the finished height 36″). Upper/Wall cabinets – mostly 12″ deep (also 15″, 18″, 24″) and 12″, 15″, 18″, 24″, 30 ” (typical), 36″, 42″ tall. Combinations, like placing base cabinets back-to-back to form a 4′ wide island, is also typical. Some 24″ deep base cabinets may include doors on both the back and front for special applications.

Standard cabinet depth is 12″ deep, and 24″ deep cabinets to be used over the refrigerator are common, which will allow easier access. When designing a kitchen with a staggered height cabinet look, it is very important that when you make cabinets taller, that you also make them 3″ deeper to 15″ D. This will allow the necessary room for crown moldings of the shorter height cabinets to finish nicely into the side of the cabinet, and not block the door opening of the taller cabinet. When trying to determine the correct height cabinet to use above a range, it is important to take into account the height of the other wall cabinets.

Standard widths for wall cabinets are the same as base cabinets, they start at 9″ W with 3″ intervals up to 36″ W. Wall cabinets also have flexibility as being used as 12 “ D base cabinets, commonly used for island applications. To use a wall cabinet as a base cabinet, it is necessary to build a 4.5″ H toe kick platform and order an additional matching toe kick to finish it. To align at standard base cabinet height, use a 30″ H wall cabinet. If you are looking to create a two tier island, use a 36″ H wall cabinet for the bar height level. The 36″ H wall cabinet with a 4.5″ H toe kick and countertop will have a finished bar height of 42″ height.

Base cabinet widths also range from 9 to 48 inches, just like overhead cabinets, but the standard height of a base cabinet is 34 1/2 inches. This ensures that a standard counter top of 1 1/2 inches thick brings the work surface up to 36 inches. Most people can stand at a counter of this height and work comfortably without slouching over. The standard depth for base cabinets is 24 inches, which ensures you can recess the sink or a cooktop within the cabinetry. Stoves and dishwashers are typically sized according these standard measurements as well. If you install a kitchen island, the standard sizing is the same as base cabinet standard measurements.
