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. 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.
When it comes to dimensions for the kitchen cabinets, most sizes are fairly standard. Often wall cabinets will be 12 to 13 inches deep and anywhere from 12 to 42 inches in height. Base cabinets are usually 24 inches deep and 34 inches high. Once a countertop is placed, the base of the cabinet will be 36 inches. If you are taller, you can adjust the cabinets to the heights you feel most comfortable with. Widths of cabinets can be anywhere between 9 to 48 inches in multiples of 3 inches.
