Kitchen Cabinet Dimensions

Before you shop, know the sizes available.

Perhaps you’ve bought a new home. Or maybe you just want a change. Either way, it’s time to think about building a new kitchen. You need to do measurements and determine the dimensions of the cabinets that are the right fit. Naturally, there are a wealth of design elements to consider, but ensuring the measurements is the first priority. You wouldn’t buy a pair of shoes without first knowing your shoe size!

There are a number of factors to consider that should help ensure that the design you choose is appropriate for your space. Below are descriptions of cabinet sizes and dimensions that may help in planning your kitchen layout. Whatever you’re looking to do, it’s best to have an understanding of the steps involved, not only choosing and installing, but of the project as a whole. Understanding the types of cabinet sizes is an excellent place to start:


BASE sizes

Countertops and other surfaces need a foundation to support them, and that is what a base cabinet does. In its standard form, it features drawers (or stacked drawers) and shelves. They lie on the floor (where they are installed) and can handle the weight of heavy appliances. They may be connected to a dishwasher or oven range. You can pick any style kitchen cabinet of any size, but a base cabinet is always necessary.


It’s important to have general knowledge of kitchen cabinet dimensions. At a typical height of three feet from the floor, a standard base cabinet has a two-foot-tall door and a toe kick that is 4.5” high. Above it, the drawer is only 6” vertically. Also built-in are three stacked drawers, the top is 6” tall, and the middle and bottom each stand at a foot.


Featuring 30” tall doors, full height base cabinets have a depth of two feet. They may be customized to accommodate limiting factors such as obstacles that prevent full usage. In such cases, they may be trimmed down substantially.

Wall Cabinet Sizes

You can pretty much write your own ticket when it comes to wall cabinet sizes. There is a wide variety available, so it is easy to work with your personal preferences. Since wall cabinets are used to store both supplies and food, you are able to organize the placement of everything you use easily within the dimensions available.

Generally, there are three main cabinet height dimensions to work with, 30”, 36” and 42”. Naturally, they are designed to work with specific heights of corresponding walls. You want to factor in aspects such as crown molding and toe kicks when determining the correct cabinet-to-wall ratio.

Tall Cabinet sizes

With standard heights such as 84”, 90” and 96”, tall cabinets are generally used as pantries or in other large storage capacities. They will generally be two feet deep, although there are one-foot deep options designed to fit in smaller spaces. Big store stock cabinets vary somewhat, with pantry widths limited to 18” or 24”. Tall oven cabinets are wider at 30” to 36” which accommodates most standard oven widths available today.
