When we archetypal revealed the kitchen we had galore comments asking for nonstop measurements of virtually every. single. thing. As a full plan nerd myself I, too, wanted to spot the nonstop measurements. So we started moving connected the station that got pushed and pushed owed to vacation stuff. Finally, 2 weeks agone it was acceptable to spell but for maine penning it (that’s ever the hold-up). So erstwhile we saw virtually the nonstop aforesaid conception published by the ace talented Chris loves Julia team, with virtually the aforesaid graphics, we exploded connected slack, jokingly accusing each different of being the mole (Caitlin wanted maine to people the timestamped slack astir it each which would beryllium comic but possibly much successful the
“the woman doth protestation excessively much” category). We astir scrapped it wholly but it was astir each done! So overmuch went into it and heck, it’s a antithetic room afloat of antithetic measurements, truthful afloat of wholly antithetic information. Then we fig if you are renovating you are apt funny astir everyone’s measurements and you should decidedly cheque theirs out, too, HERE. I recovered it truthful adjuvant and interesting. So backmost from the “almost deleted drafts” archive contiguous I person for you each of our room measurements and however I consciousness astir them.
Now determination are galore measurements that are modular (and adjacent dictated by code) and past determination are preferences based ones depending connected however you cook, however galore cooks are virtually successful the kitchen, however gangly you are, however precocious you privation to scope (how agelong are your limbs??), however gangly your ceilings are, etc. Most of that is based connected your ain anecdotal acquisition of being a quality being successful your ain body, successful your ain kitchen. So this station is evidently each astir ours – Emily and Brian Henderson’s bodies and y’all this room functions SO WELL for america to navigator successful and astir arsenic important, to bent retired in.
Most cabinets are 36″ gangly and 24″ heavy – thing newsworthy there. What I person recovered the astir absorbing and much circumstantial are clearances (the abstraction betwixt furnishings adjacent erstwhile you person the drawers open) and adjustable heights of things that travel from the ceiling. So arsenic you tin spot the clearance betwixt the descend furniture and the land is large – weighing successful astatine 50″ wide. Now 40″ is ample clearance (much little is besides precise doable if you don’t person a dishwasher). We were tense that it would beryllium excessively wide and consciousness vacuous, but y’all, it’s wonderful. I privation to, of course, authorities the evident that galore kitchens can’t warrant this overmuch clearance truthful conscionable saying “more abstraction is awesome” tin beryllium unhelpful to people. But if you are wondering if going larger connected the clearances has its downsides I’ll archer you close present that we haven’t recovered 1 yet. The kids tin unload the dishwasher and portion I’m begging them to bash so, I tin chop onions and Brian tin beryllium astatine the stove – we tin dispersed retired easy connected this broadside of the island.
You’ll announcement the vintage land is higher than the cabinets – and nary 1 has ever noticed. If you are wondering wherefore we didn’t instrumentality the precocious fridge cabinets to the ceiling it’s due to the fact that erstwhile we ordered the cabinets (from Unique Kitchen and Baths) we hadn’t built the ceilings yet truthful we decided to bash them little and capable successful with achromatic oak immoderate was left.
Also a random enactment – 2″ is ALWAYS bigger than you deliberation it is. I deliberation we speech astir 2″ similar it’s nothing, truthful I’m ever amazed erstwhile a 2″ heavy thing is really beauteous heavy (generally 1 1/2″ heavy for a support oregon a stile/rail is plenty).
I deliberation I stressed astir the tallness of the fridge grip for truthful agelong that Jamie conscionable DID IT, convey god. As you tin see, the bottommost of retired propulsion grip started astatine 35.5″ – but yet conscionable enactment your manus connected your fridge arsenic if you were going to propulsion and past screw it successful wherever your manus people lands (I deliberation I was acrophobic of it interacting with the horizontal sheet successful an unusual way). You’ll announcement that the bottommost of the bulb of our pendants landed astatine 40.5″ which is higher than it needs to beryllium but it’s cleanable successful present since our ceilings are precise gangly connected that fractional of the kitchen. If we had little ceilings they could person been person to 36″. But honestly I’d alternatively person them supra adjacent the tallest person’s caput truthful that the airy doesn’t radiance successful their eyes fto unsocial artifact speech (so err connected the broadside of higher).
As you cognize we divided up the cabinets determination into 3 small drawers, 1 large and 2 tiny and portion that outgo a decent magnitude much to bash (full custom) I volition accidental that those tiny small drawers are acold little annoying than you’d think. They are fundamentally 3 tiny junk drawers, but since they are truthful tiny thing gets mislaid and they tin person their ain dedication. Also, the Velux Skylights are precisely the width of the Sierra Pacific Windows (at 30″) which was intentional and I emotion however it turned out.
The tallness of a floating oregon bracketed support tin beryllium SO HARD to determine. We recovered that 18″ gives america capable tallness to enactment underneath it, but since our paneling lined up astatine 17″ Jamie installed it determination (which works perfectly). The extent of the shelves is 11.5″ which is large due to the fact that overmuch deeper (more than 14″) and things get lost/hard to enactment distant and little than 10″ is not capable abstraction for a batch of plates. So keeping them astir 12″ is the saccharine spot.
Me, for scale. Weighing successful astatine 5’3″ 🙂 I don’t deliberation we missed 1 measurement successful this room (thank you Mal for the galore Facetimes pulling this together). But certainly, fto maine cognize immoderate questions successful the comments. I volition accidental I person zero placement regrets to archer you about, convey goodness but I cognize that erstwhile you are successful the mediate of a room remodel it feels similar a incorrect measurement tin beryllium beingness oregon decease 🙂 Hopefully, this station tin help. xx
