Cabinet Sizes are one of the most important elements to carefully lay out before undertaking a kitchen remodel as you plan your new kitchen. The classic kitchen triangle staying in the 12' to 26' range is an important element to keep your task of preparing food, serving, and cleaning your kitchen as easy as possible.

You would like a size or distance of 42 to 48 inches between cabinets - this size is needed between your appliances and kitchen cabinets. When you are planning the location and size of the island cabinet for your new kitchen you will need these sizes. The 42 to 48 inches leaves enough room to open your drawers and cabinet doors with ease, and also allows two busy people to pass by each other. If you have seating in this traffic area - allow even more room.

Drawers in cabinets are a well know classic option. Pull outs also known as roll outs are drawers behind a cabinet door. Pull out drawers are not covered here, although standard sizing of cabinets is often the same. The standard sizes of drawer cabinets are as stated in the drawer illustration. 15 inches, 18 inches, and 21 inches are the standard width sizes for drawer cabinets. 24 inches may or may not be a standard drawer width cabinet option. If you would like a 24 inch wide drawer unit - verify this size is available with your cabinet manufacturer. Although common - It still it is not a standard drawer cabinet size.

If you are having custom cabinets built, your contractor can build the cabinets and drawers sizes to your specifications with certain limitations of course. The sizes stated for the drawer cabinets are the standard cabinet sizes. Understand standard does not always many you can walk into the home improvement store and pick up your new cabinets. Often - there is a delay of 9 to 12 weeks after ordering your cabinets, doors, and drawers. Your countertop selection may also have a wait time, so do your planning!


New kitchen initial planning very important! Write down the sizes for your new kitchen very carefully, and double check your sizes! Then check and double check your cabinet and room sizes again. Then - Again! Verify your kitchen planning goals, place everything in writing, and check your thoughts with each of your family members to ensure when you move ahead with your kitchen remodeling you will have the new kitchen that is exactly right for your needs!

When planning a new kitchen it is very important to plan ahead and know your goals and the design for your new kitchen early! When your planning is complete, and your cabinet sizes are measured and ordered, you will still have to wait for your new kitchen cabinets !

Cabinet selection is very important - make wise decisions, double check and triple check all sizes of the cabinets, and understand your goals for your new kitchen!

Standard wall cabinets are 30" tall and 12" deep which is different than the base cabinet sizes of 24" deep and 34 1/2" tall rounded up to 36" with the countertop height. Base cabinet sizes including kitchen sinks often start at 36" wide. There are variations in height with special standard wall cabinets, with these standard height sizes for wall cabinets at 12", 15", 18", and 24".

Kitchen Cabinet Sizes Base Sizes Kitchen Cabinets Wall Cabinets Installation Heights







Cabinets constructed with a frame on the front are called face frame cabinets. Cabinets with frames are face frame cabinets - Duh! O.K. I'll get more complicated. :-)

Frame portions provide openings for doors and drawers.

Another common cabinet method is called European or frame-less cabinets. The frame-less cabinets give more of a contemporary appearance to a new kitchen.

Face-framed cabinets are more of a traditional kitchen look.

While this may seem obvious to builder folk, many searches have been made for understanding kitchen design and cabinets.

Understanding kitchen cabinet information is often requested by home owners looking to remodel their kitchens and desiring to understand the builder's terminology such as what is a wall unit as they plan for a new kitchen.

There are two basic kinds of kitchen cabinets. Wall units or wall cabinets hang on walls. Base units or base cabinets sit on the floor or are shimmed up just high enough to allow flooring under them.

The countertop surface is usually 36" off the floor. Base Cabinet height is a standard 34 1/2" and the countertop is approximately 3/4" thick or 1 1/2" thick at the bull-nosed edge portion. which often considered the countertop thickness because the be bearing points are doubled to this 1 1/2" countertop thickness.

Leaving a cap under the base cabinets is also common to allow flooring to slide under the base cabinets. The base cabinet depth for kitchen cabinets is 24" as a standard sizing although custom cabinet shops are starting to build a few 30" deep cabinets as well.

Wall units are installed about 18" above the countertop. This 18" is the distance that accommodates items such as blenders, coffee makers, mixers, and toasters. It also keeps the top shelf with in reach (Under six feet from the floor).

The usual top height to install kitchen wall cabinets is 7' 0".

Kitchen Installation Quick Tip:
Making a few supports around 8" wide to set under the wall cabinets is a tips to aid in your wall cabinet installation. The countertop back splash is often 3/4" to 1 1/2" thick and you want a little room to play with your holders. Making a T Shaped holder may be even more useful! (It doesn't fall)

The height of wall cabinets in kitchens is often 30 Inches also known as the "standard" cabinet height. A second common wall cabinet height for new kitchen cabinets is 42 Inches. Other wall cabinet Heights sized for special areas in a kitchen such as above the stove (range) are 24", 18", 15", and 12" Tall (Height).

The width of Kitchen Wall cabinets is the one area that has the most flexibility. Three inch increments is the standard for kitchen cabinets with the cabinet size starting at 9 inches with many cabinet manufacturers and sizing up to 48 inches.

Wall Cabinets in kitchens have one or two doors. Single door cabinets can be hung so doors can swing in either direction.

Double doors cabinets are hinged from the outsides as a standard for wider wall cabinets.

Sizing Kitchen Exhaust Fans


Kitchen Exhaust Hoods are attractive in modern kitchens. Kitchens with the most attractive looking hood for exhaust fans (ventilation fan) must still have a fan which is the right size and can move the right amount of air out of the kitchen.

Fans are sized by the amount of air they move in cubic feet per minute or CFM.

What are the guidelines when sizing your kitchen ventilation fan to suit your needs?
Multiply the recommended CFM by the linear feet of cooking surface.
Other factors: Length of ductwork, # of turns in the ductwork, and the location of the fan's motor also may contribute to the size of exhaust fan needed.

When Ranges and Cooktops are installed against a wall:
Kitchen's cook does light cooking - 40 CFM
Kitchen has moderate to lots of cooking - 100 to 150 CFM

When Ranges and Cooktops are installed in islands and peninsula cabinets:
Kitchen's cook does light cooking: 50 CFM
Kitchen has moderate to lots of cooking - 150 to 300 CFM

Another option is a hood-less downdraft ventilation system. This is often used with island cabinet cooktops. The hood-less ventilation system forces air above the burners through a filter, and then out of the house through ductwork (Metal Piping) Although the down draft system is not as functional as a hooded system is a step up from a ductless fan, which is usually not effective.

Ideally your kitchen's range hood should overlap the cooking surface by 3 inches on each side and sit 24 to 30 inches above the range.
