Often referred to as pantry cabinets or utility cabinets, tall kitchen cabinets can create an efficient storage space in your kitchen, as well as an elongating design element that can complement any kitchen style.

In general, base kitchen cabinets—those are the ones that sit directly on the floor—are around 35 inches tall and 24 inches deep. Their width varies based on what kitchen element or elements sit on or in them—so for example, a 36-inch base cabinet can accommodate a double-basin sink, whereas a 30-inch cabinet can accommodate a single-basin sink.

Wall cabinets are generally between 12 and 24 inches high and 12 to 16 inches deep. The standard width for two-door wall cabinets is between 30 and 36 inches.

Tall cabinets are their own species—they can range from 84 to 96 inches tall, in general, and 12 to 24 inches deep. Widths vary depending on the space available, with 12 inch, 24 inch and 36 inch tall kitchen cabinet widths commonly available. Many tall kitchen cabinets are used as pantries, since their floor-to-ceiling style allows for efficient storage of food and supplies. If your storage needs are significant, you may want to explore a larger size, since this will allow you to consider adding features such as pull-outs and storage doors.
