All kitchens come in many different shapes and sizes. Therefore, the layout that you require will depend on a number of factors. For example, lifestyle and space available.
When it comes to redesigning your kitchen, you may need to consider the height and depth that you require.
Height Of Kitchen Worktops
The basic answer is that the height of a Kitchen Countertop is determined by the base units. The height of a base unit can range from 870mm to 1000mm. This height is perfect for one person but may not be perfect for another.
On average, a Kitchen Worktop is around 900mm in height. If this does not work for you then in order to find the correct height there is a method that you can try. The height of the worktop should be level with your wrist bone. This will allow more of a comfortable for the individuals that are using the kitchen to be able to carry out common kitchen tasks such as preparing meals.
When having a Breakfast bar/Island erected in your kitchen, the height is based on the chosen seating. This may depend on the height of the occupants to which style and height of chair they need. If your worktop height is between 890mm and 940mm then you will require seating of between 580mm and 720mm depending on the individuals. Worktops that have a height of 1,040mm and 1,090mm should be paired with seating of between 740mm and 820mm in height.
Lower Kitchen Workshop Accessibility
In some home situations, you may require a much lower worktop to make your kitchen more accessible for wheelchair users for example. If this is the case, a worktop height of 800mm would be best suited. There would also need to be knee space of around 76mm too.
