Help! Counter too high?
We've got a bit of a problem...feedback appreciated..
When prepping the tops of our cabinets for countertops, we discovered there wasn't enough clearance on the wall for our outlets between the counter and the raised bar. A little back research and I discovered the cabinets were too high. The custom cabinet guy shimmed them up an inch in anticipation of tile flooring. We never said anything about tile. He installed the cabinets on top of our hardwood floor.
We also put down 1 1/8" plywood instead of 3/4" in anticipation of a fatter lip on the stone.
We could go with a shorter lip, but it would only save us 3/8". The problem is the cabinets. Once the stone is on they will be almost 37.5". I'm 5'5". They seem really high.
What would you do? Have the cabinet guy uninstall and reinstall all the cabs? I'm a wuss when it comes to asking for that sort of thing. It's hard to know what the countertops will feel like when their in and I'm using them.
I'm a newbie - this is our first remodel adventure and our first big problem :)
