Kitchen cabinetry must maintain clearances between counters and cabinets to simultaneously accommodate the human body and the use of cabinets and drawers. A total clearance of 60”-66” | 152-168 cm can comfortably provide adequate space for both a circulation zone and workzone for using cabinetry, while 48” | 122 cm is recommended for a minimum clearance without a full circulation zone. Separately, cabinetry workzones require a minimum of 36” | 91 cm and circulation zones require between 24”-30” | 61-76 cm. Kitchen countertops and cabinets are typically sized at 24” | 61 cm wide.
