Height of cabinets in desk area of kitchen

Our kitchen cabinets will be going to the ceiling (9 ft) and 18" above countertops. Our desk area needs to have a lower countertop. Is it best to take cabinets in desk area to ceiling and have a larger than 18" space between cabinet and counter OR continue the 18" space and have shorter cupboards in that area that do not reach the ceiling?

If I understand correctly...........I would not set the cabinets over the desk lower, set them at the same height as the others.

Agree with Bill. Esthetics will work better. Instead of lower counter, get a barstool height chair! Get two, if the dest is wide enough, and it can double as a bar for you and someone to visit with a glass of ________!
