Deeper Base Cabinets and 12 inch Deep Uppers

9 years ago

Though I have enough countertop space (60 sq' of counters), I think having a deeper 30" countertops would be awesome. That said since we're using IKEA cabinets, we'd only be able to increase the countertops and not the drawers themselves.

In addition being only 5'3", I'm concerned with reaching the 12" deep two uppers we'll have in the kitchen.

Would you make the counters deeper and sacrificing space in the kitchen and adjoining room? I hear about others increasing their countertops but not very often in comparison to those that don't.
