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.

Tall cabinets consist mostly of pantry cabinets with various storage options and oven cabinets. Tall cabinets are typically 84″ H, 90″ H, and 96″ H. To select the correct pantry for your space, use 84″ H pantry with 30″ H wall cabinets, 90″ H pantry with 36″ H wall cabinets, and 96″ H pantry with 42″ H wall cabinets. Tall pantries are most commonly 24″ deep, but 12″ deep options are common for tighter spaces. When working with stock cabinet lines, pantry widths are typically limited to 18″ wide or 24″ wide, however when working with semi-custom cabinet manufacturers pantry cabinets range from 9″ W in 3″ W intervals up to 36″ wide. Tall oven cabinets are typically 30″ W to 36″ W to fit most standard size single oven widths on the market. Please note that if you are ordering a double oven or oven/microwave combo appliance to carefully check the cut-out dimensions before purchasing the wall oven cabinet. In many cases, for these types of appliances, it’s necessary to remove two of the bottom drawers of the tall oven cabinet to allow for the additional height necessary to install the appliance properly inside the cabinet.

If a custom cabinet maker or your cabinet sales person makes a mistake in measuring, and the standard kitchen cabinet sizes that they order don’t fit, it’s their problem. Don’t let them make you pay for rebuilding or reordering cabinets or countertops.

Framed cabinets, also known as face-framed cabinets, have a frame on the front of the cabinet that makes the box highly stable and helps keep it square. Door hinges attach to the frame. Framed cabinets complement both traditional and contemporary décor. Frameless cabinets, also known as European-style cabinets, have no frame around the face of the cabinet box. Thicker side panels lend stability, and drawers and hinges attach directly to the cabinet’s side walls. Because drawers do not have to fit in a frame’s opening, they can be as wide as the cabinet, providing more storage. Frameless cabinets are often used with contemporary décor.
