How High Should Kitchen Cabinets Be from the Countertop?

You’re contemplating getting new kitchen cabinets installed, but you want them to be perfect. If they’re too close to your countertop, then your whole kitchen will look weird. If they’re too high, then it’ll be nearly impossible to reach the items you need. What’s the correct balance? How high should your kitchen cabinets be from the countertop?

If you recently got a glass kitchen countertop installed from our team at CBD Glass in Toronto, Ontario, Canada or you’re thinking of doing so soon, then of course you’re going to want your cabinets flush with the countertop. We’re here to answer all your questions about organizing your kitchen so your remodel can go as smoothly as possible.

Let’s get started.

For wall cabinets, if you begin measuring from the bottom of these to your glass kitchen counter’s top, you should have 18 inches of space. Avoid separating the cabinets from the countertop by only 15 inches, as it’s an insufficient amount of room. Going as much as 20 inches is too excessive.

It’s regarded that 18 inches should give you enough room to access the shelves you need and get to the countertop without feeling like there’s too much room or too little. Plus, getting your cabinets installed at this height will allow you to show off your kitchen walls, including a lovely backsplash.

If you don’t have a backsplash, this is a basic kitchen feature that will save you a lot of time. A glass backsplash from our team at CBD Glass can catch all those messes that accumulate as you and the other members of your family use the kitchen. It’s super easy to keep the backsplash tidy, too, as glass cleans up with just a soft cloth and some soap and water. No expensive, inconvenient cleaning products required!

Here at CBD Glass, you can also customize almost all our glass products, including our kitchen countertops and backsplashes. Create the backsplash you’ve always wanted with any shape, design, color, and glass thickness your heart desires. Our countertops can also be textured, the edges shaped, and LED backlighting installed for a cool glow and extra safety when in the kitchen at night. It’s your project, so design it how you want it.
