Help with Pass Through/Breakfast Bar Dimensions
I am working on designing my kitchen remodel and am rethinking what I had planned for the pass-through/breakfast bar set up that I have planned. It will be an opening between the kitchen and living room. This is to both provide a simple dining/homework area solution as well as to ease entertaining when it happens.
I was planning for the counter to be set at 42" and was hoping to install upper cabinets with glass fronts to showcase items collected during our travels. I was also going to have matching cabinets placed facing the kitchen for additional storage because the kitchen that we have planned is an open concept with limited upper cabinets.
Finally to the question: How high above the counter should I have the cabinets installed? The ceiling is 9' high and the cabinets come in three standard heights 30", 30" & 42". I just want to make sure there is enough headroom when a tall adult sits at the bar. Hubby is 6'2".
Any suggestions would be helpful.
