Kitchens are not just for eating. For many people it is the heart of the house. A gathering place to talk, work and sometimes entertain guests. No wonder it is the most expensive room in most homes. When you make the decision to change your cabinets, you’ll need some basic knowledge to make sure the process goes smoothly. Kitchens must have at least 50 square feet of wall and base cabinet storage space. 11 square feet or four drawers are often required. At least one of the cabinets must have a shallow drawer.

When it comes to cabinet dimensions, most sizes are pretty standard. Often wall cabinets will be between 12 and 13 inches deep and between 12 and 42 inches in height. Basic cabinets are typically 24 inches deep and 34 inches high. Once a countertop is in place, the base of the cabinet will be 36 inches. If you are taller, you can adjust the cabinets to the heights that you feel most comfortable with. Cabinet widths can be between 9 and 48 inches in multiples of 3 inches.

You can also find different base and wall cabinets that are for corner installations. In addition to the standard sizes, there are many cabinets made to measure. Some have built-in wine racks, revolving shelves, and areas to hide trash. After deciding on the custom features you want, you have the option to choose a design for the cabinets. The arrangement depends on the dimensions of the room where the door and window are located. You can simply replace the cabinets in the same places or try something new.

When it comes to the shapes, you will be able to find many plans.

A popular shape is the “U”. It is ideal for kitchens of any size. It is functional and efficient. To choose this design you will need at least 10 feet of width. If the “U” shape is not an option, another popular option is the “L” shape. This shape can be customized for almost any kitchen. Give people in the kitchen two work areas to prepare meals. It also gives more space to the dining room.

If your kitchen doesn’t have a lot of space, consider the “one” shape. It adapts well to small houses and apartments. If you like a lot of counter space, this won’t be the best design for you. You could plan to use a nearby cupboard as storage space in the kitchen.

Typically, kitchen cabinet dimensions are similar. You can easily determine which ones they are by measuring them. The hard part is deciding the next step. Will you do a complete makeover or keep them in the same places? This would be a great project for any DIYer.
