Go lower than 18 inches and you mayfindthatcertain small appliances don't fit below thecabinets,orthat the upper cabinets start to blockyour view ofthecountertop. Although 18 inches is a typicalminimumheight,kitchen cabinets can start muchhigherthanthis.
Also Know, should flooring go under cabinets? If you are installing a hardwood floatingfloor(orany floating floor such as cork orlaminate),youshould install the floor AFTERthekitchencabinets are installed.
