The standard height of the distance between the cabinets and base cabinets wall is 18 inches (45.72 cm). While some cabinets may be a little less, reaching about 16 inches (40.64 cm), and others can be a bit more, as at 22 inches (55.88 cm), the standard height for all splash zones is 18 inches (45.72 cm). This is the distance from the top of the cabinet unfinished at the bottom wall of the cabinet and not from the top of the desk to the bottom wall of the cabinet.

Custom Cabinets
The cabinets as allow you to ignore the standard measures for the height of the splash zone. While you may choose to use the standard 18-inch (45.72 cm) in height, the beauty of the cabinets is that established guidelines are only a recommendation. You can build your cabinets in any way they deem appropriate, hanging them at any height above the desk to accommodate your custom plans thereof. Most people use as de18 inches (45.72 cm) due to the average human height, but you can adjust it if necessary.

Final height
Splash entire area with tiles or stone, extends from the top of the counter on the cabinets and the wall base top wall to the bottom of the cabinet wall. Any measure you take to the splash area should be carried out taking into account the material of the counter, as well as light bars that can be hung beneath the cabinet wall. The final height is always different from the approximate height which is set at 18 inches (45.72 cm).

Material splash area

For example, if you’ve chosen to place large body tile or natural stone slab, you can choose it to adjust the height of the cabinets because it is easier to do it in them to cut certain types of materials. Or, if you want you can place tiles 4 inches (10.16 cm) in a diagonal design and to avoid cutting a small piece at the bottom of the cabinet wall, you could hang the cabinets to allow higher cutting full size visual appeal.
