That is up to you.
Standard Toe kick height, I believe is 4 1/4", or there abouts.
My kitchen's toe kicks are 3 1/2" with no added flooring on it (1950's Builder-built/lived-in house)
If you can live with 3 1/4"...that is up to you...
(Be aware that your dish washer may be affected by the hardwood flooring essentially 'locking' it under the counter - something to also take into consideration)
