**Windows Above**the

**Sink**

**height**of your cabinets -- traditionally 34 1/2 inches -- and the thickness of your countertop -- usually 1 1/2 inches. The

**window height**, therefore,

**should**be set at 37 inches.

In this regard, what is normal window height?

Standard **heights** are 24 inches, 36 inches, 48 and 60 inches.

Similarly, what is the standard size of a kitchen window? These **windows** start at 24 inches and go up to 28, 32 and 40 inches. Their heights vary from 36 to 72, with heights of 44, 52, 54 and 62. Remember to take 1/2 inch off of each measurement for the correct **window size**.

Herein, how high should a window be off the floor?

First, the head height or top of the **window**, **should** be the same in any given room or visual field. Typically this is about six foot – eight inches **off the floor** with an eight foot **high** ceiling or 8 feet **off the floor** if the ceiling is nine or ten feet **tall**.

How high should kitchen cabinets be from countertop?

18 inches
