Since you’re renovating the kitchen anyway, you might as well design it so that it makes kitchen work more comfortable and less of a strain on your body. The kitchen dimensions mentioned here are quite standard and will suit the average kitchen size. However, we have also included some special recommendations for small kitchens at the end.
Let’s start with some general rules for kitchens of any size. The most comfortable countertop height for preparing food is 3-4 inches below your elbow.
