Kitchens made to measure according to your height
Your kitchen should fit like a tailor-made suit.
The right work heights will ensure that every day you can cook in an upright position which suits your back.
This will influence how comfortable you feel working in your kitchen.
The ideal work height
The ideal work height can be determined very easily: The distance between the work top and your elbows should be 10–15 cm.
Cabinets of various heights
Whether high or low, every kitchen should be ergonomically designed to offer a high level of comfort. Kitchen manufacturers take this requirement into consideration, producing base cabinets in multiple versions. The names of the cabinets differ among the various providers, for example "standard cabinet" and "maxi cabinet".
High cabinet with low base
The height of the cabinet is normally determined by the base height. As a result, a cabinet with a low base provides much more usable storage space than a cabinet with a high base. The advantages include spacious pull-outs or even additional drawers.
We therefore recommend, where possible, a cabinet with a low base, to ensure maximum storage space is provided.
