Laundry room wall cabinet height?
We're finally installing my wall cabinets in the laundry room tomorrow. They're 36" wall cabinets, 30" high, 12' deep. They will go across the whole back wall. My ceilings are 8'.
How high up on the wall should they be hung? Part of my problem with this is I want to be able to put a few things on top of the cabinets. I'm adding crown and that will also hide the base of whatever I use on top.
I "could" pull my washer and dryer out a little to allow more room for opening and closing the washer lid which is my main concern but because the sink/cabinet is against the wall I thought it look odd. Plus, it make the floor space less which I use to sprawl clothes into loads on my wash day (s).
Here's a shot so you can get an idea of the area.
Should I just hang them kitchen wall cabinet guidelines? Isn't it 34 1/2" from floor to the wall cabinet? I know My Dad and DH aren't going to want to hold the cabinet forever so I can look and think, look and think.
The blue tape on the wall is around where I thought it would be nice to hang them but they're 12' deep. I don't want to smash my knuckles every time I open the washer.
Who knows, once they're up maybe it will look odd if I DON'T pull the washer and dryer out a wee bit.
*Shelf will be coming down, wall cabinets are white, base cabinet is now painted white, walls will be painted (probably BM Northampton Putty), hardware will be added.
I don't remember what height the blue tape is so I'm not sure how it compares to standard wall hanging. I think it's a little lower.
