When you’re replacing your kitchen cabinets, choosing the right size be overwhelming for some homeowners, especially inexperienced ones. Read on as JLR Home Renovations, a top remodeling contractor, reviews the standard dimensions for every kind of cabinet.
Base cabinets are often used if you need to add dishwashers, ranges and other kinds of appliances in your kitchen, meaning that they serve as a base for your countertops and other surfaces. They usually have a height of between 34 ½’’ and 36’’ from the floor to the top of the countertop. The toe kick portion of the cabinet is 4 ½’’ while the standard door height is 24’’ and the top drawer height is usually 6’’. When it comes to width, a base cabinet is usually placed between 9’’ and 42’’. The depth of a base cabinet is 24’’ without a countertop.
Wall cabinets are great for storing kitchen supplies and food items, so they need to be spacious. Luckily, compared to base cabinets, wall cabinets offer a lot more diversity when it comes to sizing. For height, wall cabinets tend to come in sizes of 30’’, 36’’, and 42″, which makes them fit between the ceiling and base cabinets easily. As for the width, wall cabinets tend to vary in threes between 12’’ and 36’’. This can vary to allow for single or double doors for your cabinets.
Finally, wall cabinets usually have a depth of 12’’ or 24’’ and cannot surpass the depth of a base cabinet. To install the right kind of wall cabinet in your home, don’t hesitate to turn to the kitchen and basement remodeling contractors of JLR Home Renovation for assistance.
Tall cabinets, which can reach up to 96’’, are typically used as a pantry space or an oven cabinet. They’re often available in heights of 84’’, 90’’ and 96’’. For the width, tall cabinets are limited to 18’’ or 24’’, with a depth of 24’ or 12’’.
