Recommended height between counter and bottom of upper cabinet?

11 years ago

Just started gathering info and inspiration for a kitchen remodel and have some questions.

I have 8' ceilings in my kitchen nook and family room with a stupid 4 or 6' drop in height over the work area of the kitchen. In the remodel we're getting rid of the drop so the whole space will have 8'.

-Can you please tell me what height or minimum height is recommended between the counter top and the base of the upper cabinets?

-Can you recommend a good website or 2 that covers basic kitchen and bath design questions like this and recommended aisle space, height, clearances, lighting suggestions, "things to consider", etc so I can educate myself instead of nagging you guys with Qs like this?

Thank you!
