Ergonomics of Kitchen Surface Used as a Desk
I'm adding a 24" wide x 48" long "counter" extending into the kitchen at a right angle at the end of a series of cabinets.
It will be lower than the standard kitchen countertops, approx. desk height, so we can use it both as a place for a quick snack or sometimes as a desk. The top will be granite.
My questions concern the ergonomics of such a counter:
1) How tall should the countertop be for eating/writing comfort?
2) How far should the granite overhang the support structure for knee clearance?
I read that 29" is the office industry standard for desk height, but I'm wondering if that also applies to kitchens.
