How High to Hang Kitchen Cabinets


The kitchen is one of the busiest parts of a home, acting as a centralized center to prepare and serve numerous meals and snacks throughout the day. Hanging kitchen cabinets help maximize space for this busy area.


  • With numerous pots, pans, plates, and glasses, each kitchen needs a good storage system to house all the necessary utensils. Hanging kitchen cabinets gives the homeowner a way to access these utensils with ease.


  • When hanging kitchen cabinets, the bottom of the wall cabinet should be 18 inches from the top of the counter. Based on a bottom cabinet height of 34 inches, plus 1.5 inches of counter top, measuring from the floor to the bottom of the wall, cabinets should begin at about 54 inches.


  • Once the level line is drawn on the wall where the bottom of the wall cabinet should be, temporarily attach a piece of wood on that line so the wall cabinets have a brace while being installed.
