Garage cabinet plans are often designed with standard kitchen cabinet dimensions, as these measurements include both cabinet and wall mounted storage devices. If you buy new or used storage cabinets, you will probably get standard kitchen cabinets, even if you use a locker for your garage. But if you plan to mount cabinet units in your garage, you have to think about where and where to mount them.
Standard mounting height
Standard mounting height for cabinets, both the garage and the kitchen cabinet, is about 96 inches from the floor surface to the top of the cabinets in question. This special height means that you can reach the top of the cabinets by either standing on your toes or using a chair or stool, just like you can do with ordinary kitchen cabinets. This height also gives a little space between the upper surface of the cabinet and the ceiling, so the cabinets can get proper ventilation.
General Cabinet Sizes
Mounting height of the cabinet will depend on the size of the cabinet. If the cabinet has standard dimensions of 12 inches deep and about 30 inches tall, the 96-inch installation height is correct. A higher cabinet may require a higher mounting height if the bottom of the cabinet interferes with your car-parking space. The width of a garage cupboard falls between 15 inches for single doors and 48 inches for multiple doors. When choosing your mounting location, check the space before starting to drill. Make sure your car fits into the garage without striking or scratching the cabinets as you drive in and out. Additionally make sure that the wide cabinet name is mounted above the car height does not hit your car if you have a ski or kayak storage rack on top of your car.
Mounting Garage Cabinet
Wooden garage cabinets must be mounted safely so that they do not loosen and fall down and cause a risk of damage to your car or items in your garage. Locate the wooden beams that extend across the garage, if applicable. If you have finished walls, use a wall rule to locate the rules in the wall. Use these building rules and beams to mount your cabinets, as they provide strength to the cabinet, which means it, can hold more weight. Simply attach it to the wall without wall rails increase the chances of broken walls and destroyed cabinets, as they can be seated.
