What height should my worktops be?

When planning your kitchen, there are a number of elements to consider. One of which being the height of your cabinets and worktops. If you don’t know how high your worktops should be, there are a few things to consider.

Firstly, the standard height for kitchen worktops is 36 inches. Of course, this does not mean that this is a rule set in stone. There are some variables that need to be included in your considerations when you do.

Your height will be something worth considering. For those who are taller than the average person, taller worktops might be a better option. Similarly, for anyone who is particularly short, you might prefer worktops that are lower down. Preparing food on a surface that is too high will prove difficult, at best. As for worktops that are too low, this will almost always result in back pain.

The right height is not only great for your worktops but your kitchen sink as well. Like food preparation, if your sink is too high or low it can make dishwashing a difficult or even backbreaking chore. When you are planning your kitchen remodel, you can measure your current worktops and make your choice accordingly.
