Standard dimensions of kitchen cabinets
Your kitchen cabinets should be just the right size since they serve as the base of your kitchen. To simplify things, we've put together a list of our standard kitchen cabinet measurements, along with top-notch guidance on how to organize these cabinets in your kitchen.
Measurements for kitchen cabinets
When you're on the hunt for the perfect kitchen cabinets, having a grasp of the available dimensions can be really handy. To provide you with a clear picture, we've organized the kitchen cabinets into categories:
Tall and base cabinets:
Standard depth 56,5 cm
Wall and upper cabinets:
Standard depth 33 cm
Think of these cabinets as versatile building blocks that can be combined in numerous ways. This empowers you to devise precisely the solution that suits your requirements.
Tall and base cabinets
The base cabinet is available in a standard height, while you can choose from three standard heights for tall cabinets:
T-tall cabinet height: 124.8 cm
H-tall cabinet height: 195.2 cm
J-tall cabinet height: 211.2 cm
A-base cabinet height: 70.4 cm
As you pick between base or tall cabinets, keep in mind that a standard plinth measures 16.6 cm and should be added to the cabinet height to get the complete measurement.
For HTH's base cabinets, the standard depth is 56.5 cm, aligning seamlessly with a 60 cm deep worktop.
Wall and top cabinets
When it comes to selecting top or wall cabinets, you can take full advantage of the vertical space in your kitchen. You have the flexibility to arrange your cabinets to your liking, and we offer four standard sizes:
F-wall cabinet height: 86.4 cm
D-wall cabinet height: 70.4 cm
C-wall cabinet height: 57.6 cm
R-top cabinet height: 35.2 cm
Top and wall cabinets are more shallow in depth compared to tall and base cabinets, which creates extra room and imparts a feeling of openness as the cabinets ascend. Overhead or top cabinets have a depth of 33 cm, providing ample storage. When installing your kitchen, we recommend a minimum clearance of 52 cm between the worktop and the bottom of the wall cabinets.
Get the cabinets tailored for your kitchen
Kitchens come in various shapes and sizes, and your cabinet dimensions might have distinct demands. Perhaps you're looking for a cabinet tailored to fit a unique corner.
If HTH's standard measurements don't align with your kitchen's specifics, there's the possibility to have cabinets customized to precisely match your needs. While customization offers flexibility, it's essential to bear in mind that tailored cabinets generally come at a higher cost compared to selecting cabinets with standard dimensions.
How to arrange your kitchen cabinets
Once you've pinpointed the suitable measurements for your kitchen cabinets and you're content with the outward appearance, it's time to delve into the cabinet interior. HTH provides an extensive array of options like shelves and drawers, waste management setups, pull-outs, and rotating trays. There's also room for incorporating built-in ovens and microwaves. You have the flexibility to fine-tune these solutions to your exact requirements, and you can acquire extra components for enhanced cabinet organization.
When arranging your kitchen cabinets, prioritize practicality. Opt for base cabinets equipped with drawers and blend in drawer inserts and dividers to establish the most efficient organization for your day-to-day requirements.
Shelves can be employed in all sorts of kitchen cabinets and are especially handy in upper and wall cabinets. They grant you the flexibility to effortlessly tailor the interior, whether it's for dishes or kitchen gadgets.
