Kitchen Cabinet Sizes

The standard depth for kitchen cabinets is 60 cm. The depth should be measured to include the thickness of the door and front of the drawer, but not the handles of the door. The width of the kitchen cabinets is usually a multiple of 10 or 15 cm, and the height of the base units will reach 91 cm including the adjustable leg, plus the addition of the worktop which can be either 2cm, 3cm, 4cm thick. You will find that the majority of dishwashers and freestanding ovens are designed to work with these sizes. Good quality kitchen cabinets will generally be 18mm thick, with an 8mm solid back for extra rigidity.

Integrated Laundry and Dishwashers are made specifically to go behind a kitchen door and under the worktop and these are 60cm wide.

Integrated behind the door refrigeration comes in many combinations, either to go under the worktop or to be built into a tall housing unit which are 60cm wide and can be 190cm, 217cm or 229cm tall.

Built-in ovens are always 60cm wide and can be 60cm, 76cm or 90cm high and these then fit into different styles of housings again with different heights available. Of course, all kitchen cabinets and appliances dimensions can vary but these are the standard measurements, so you may need to be more specific if you’re working with limited space. So once you have your measurements contact a good kitchen retailer who will have the expertise and design skills to advise you about what will fit in your kitchen and what won’t.
