What is the standard height for a medicine cabinet?
On One Hand: Proper Placement Is KeyWhen installing a medicine cabinet, the prevailing standard height is 46 to 48 inches from the floor to the bottom of the cabinet, according to Dan Glidewell of Glidewell Building in St. Louis, Missouri. This range allows for variances in vanity height, backsplash design and cabinet design. Using this standard also places the items on the top shelves of the cabinet within easy reach of most adults and beyond the reach of most children.On the Other: Nobody Is “Standard”The height at which you place the medicine cabinet depends on the height of the people who will most often use it.
