Cabinet height for 90" celings
We have only 90" ceilings in our 1970 colonial home. We currently have 32" cabinets with an 8" soffit above them. There is slightly more than 16" between the bottom of the cabinets and counter currently, which works fine as far as our coffee maker etc. (see picture)
I about to order our new Kraftmaid cabinets and was planning to get 36" cabinets keeping the 16" distance between the bottom and the counter. That only leaves room for a very small molding on top. I am concerned about how this will look. I could switch to 30" cabinets and a larger molding with more distance between the cabinet and counter. I plan to have whatever I do go to the ceiling and no space left open. I don't want to lose storage space though in the end because our kitchen isn't that big! I am not really wanting to change cabinet makers but I suppose I could look for others that have cabinet sizes in between. Opinions?
