Should kitchen cabinets go all the way to the ceiling?


When planning your kitchen remodel plans, there are a slew of design details to consider—especially when it comes to determining the size and style of your cabinets. In a traditional home, wall-mounted cabinets on the upper level are between 32 and 36 inches tall, leaving about a foot or two of space above them.

However, in modern kitchens—particularly in urban areas where space is at a premium—running cabinets to the ceiling are a smart way to incorporate additional storage. In addition to the practical benefit of additional space for storing small appliances and utensils, ceiling height units create a seamless, fuss-free aesthetic, avoiding creating a dust trap on top of cabinets.
