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.
