Although the space each and every one of us has available when it comes to kitchen design and layout, the amount of space our kitchen cabinets must occupy is more or less standard and does not vary too much as explained below.

Generally speaking wall cabinets will be about 12 to 13 inches deep and 12 to 42 inches in height, now you may be thinking that the height figure varies quite a bit but in certain cases some people with limited space will prefer to have the wall cabinets extend all the way to the ceiling and use the upper hard to reach compartments as storage for items which get utilized infrequently.

As for the base cabinets the figures we get are a little more predictable with the dept been anywhere between 23 to 25 inches and height around 34 inches minus the 2 or so inches taken up by the countertop.
