Over the years, I have remodeled and renovated many kitchens. What is the first thing that people asked to get replaced? Cabinets. They’re old and outdated. Did you know that you can create your own custom cabinet at the fraction of the cost? I’ve read a great how to article that shows you how to do it step by step.
“Plan your cabinets. Standard counter depth is 25″, which the cabinets themselves being 24″ to allow for a 1″ countertop lip. Standard counter height is 36″, with the cabinets usually being around 34.5″ tall to allow room for the countertop material. For upper (or wall) cabinets, add 18-20″ to the 36″ counter height. Any space left over between that distance and your ceiling is fair game for upper cabinets. The cabinet width can be anywhere from 12-60″, but always should be made in 3″ increments. The most common sizes are 15″, 18″, 21″, and 24″. Always account for the size of the doors you want and can buy when planning the width of your cabinets. ”
