When redesigning a kitchen, it’s important to consider various factors such as the family dynamic and available space, as every kitchen layout is unique. One aspect to consider is the height and depth required for your kitchen worktops.
The height of your kitchen worktops is primarily determined by the base units. It’s important to think about the height of the household members and what works best for them. While the average height of kitchen worktops is around 900mm, this may not necessarily be the best fit for your needs.
To determine the most comfortable height for your kitchen worktops, compare their height to your wrist bone. This will help you find the optimal height for carrying out kitchen tasks comfortably.
A Breakfast Bar or Kitchen Island height will dictate what height the seating will be around it. If you have a worktop height of around 890mm to 940mm then you may want to choose seating that is between 580mm and 820mm. Allowing you to have enough leg and arm space.
Worktops that are between 1,040mm and 1,090mm should be paired with seats between 740mm and 820mm in height. Those that have worktops that are extra tall between 1,100mm and 1,190mm will require seating of between 840mm and 920mm.
If you or a member of your household is a wheelchair user then you may require a worktop height to make it accessible for them, therefore needing a much lower worktop. This would typically be between 800mm, allowing the user to have at least 76mm of knee space.
A typical worktop would be around 600mm-650mm deep to accommodate the base units. Worktops are able to be made into many different depths ranging from 600mm to 1,240mm. The larger in size is more suited for kitchen islands.
Whatever size you need, the depth can be altered. This is done by using an appropriate circular saw or with extended biscuit joints. Our worktops can be easily cut to size on-site to allow for much flexibility for our customers, creating them their dream kitchen worktops.
