Ok, so I've been following various threads, as I build out my 2020 Transit HR extended. And as I finish the wiring, electric and water boxes, and bed frame, I'm almost ready to tackle the kitchen area cabinets. Admittedly, this is a topic I haven't researched as much yet.
So I was thinking, why not go higher on the lower cabinets, like 38-42"? It's not that much higher.
The thought process was that, since you don't want the upper cabinets to hang too low (for bed head clearance and counter working clearance), all the space between the countertop and the upper cabinets could be considered as semi-wasted space, and that the higher the counter the MORE space UNDER the counter for drawers, storage etc... You know, a more efficient use of what little space you have. Hey, I was a submariner in an earlier part of my life.
I get that the space BETWEEN the cabinets is important also, but isn't the space under the countertop more important? Are there aesthetic issues to consider? Any feedback regarding this issue from those of you who have considered this before would be much appreciated. I'm looking to see what kind of dimensions people use on their counters, and more importantly the upper cabinets.
If there are any applicable thread topics, link them here also.
