Kitchen upper cabinet height requirement...


Is there really a kitchen upper cabinet height requirement? I have set mine, the crown is all in... I am about to do the backsplah and a friend just told me that there is a requirement of 18". I just measured mine and they are about 17".

Like Bob said, it's okay.

There are guidelines established such as by organizations like the NKBA but there are not "requirements" which I think by requirements you mean codes.

Nice... that is a huge relief. I thought for the past couple days I might be removing my last couple weekends of work.

Thank you both very much for your response!!!
