Not only can the cabinets installed in your kitchen significantly affect its aesthetic appeal, but the materials and methods used to construct them are just as important. Use this buyer’s guide to help you make an informed decision.
Construction Methods: There are three types of cabinets: base, wall-mounted and tall.
Base cabinets are what support your countertop. The average height for them is between 34 ½” and 36″, but their depth can differ based on the cabinet, varying anywhere from 24″ to 30″.
Wall cabinets are hung on the wall and do not reach the floor. They vary in height from 12″, 15″, 18″, 30″, 36″, or 42″. Their depth varies between 12″ and 18″. They are normally installed 18″ above work surfaces and 54″ from the floor. Tall cabinets, for example, pantries, are 84″ to 94″ high and come in standard depths of 12″ to 18″.
There are three types of cabinets: stock (prefabricated), semi-custom, or custom. When knowing how much you want to spend on cabinets and prioritizing either durability or aesthetics, will help guide your decisions in renovating your kitchen.
