Help with upper/lower kitchen cabinet proportions with a 10' ceiling

5 years ago

I was looking at my kitchen cabinet proportions and they were appearing a bit 'squat' to me. My drawing isn't perfect but perhaps the following description helps. The design will be beaded flush inset cabinets with separate uppers and lowers (as shown). The ceiling is 10'. There is a flat 'fascia' piece above the upper cabinet and then crown molding above which continues around the room. The sink area is recessed back by an additional 6" and the cabinets are at the edge of this 'alcove'.

Should I I merge the cabinets into a single upper that would be 3' 8-1/2" tall? Or, I could keep them separate and change the proportions. I can even make these cabinets narrower by exposing some wall near the windows.

Maybe they are just fine? Your comments are apprec

iated but no need to mention that I need to have an architect or kitchen designer looks at this- been there, done that. Thanks!
