Thank you! On the plan it's 48" from the range handles to the countertop edge. It may have been altered slightly, but not by much since it was intentional to have a larger clearance in this area.

Angela, the doors are custom flat panel doors with a beaded inside edge. I don't know the exact size of the bead. Thanks for the question.

Love this tall cabinet-what does it store?

Is there a reason why you recommend this design of cabinet sitting on top of counter over a floor to ceiling pantry? It looks really nice. I ask because I just ordered a pantry for our new kitchen but I like hoe this looks better. Do you lose storage this way though? Really beautiful kitchen!

Thanks! Yes, you do lose some storage. I used this pantry arrangement for many functional reasons. By stepping it back, it allows greater accessibility to the corner and the cabinet next to it. Also, the upper cabinet door to the left of the range would have hit a 24" deep pantry. So there are logistical reasons as well as aesthetics. In my experience, roll out shelves in uppers aren't practical unless you are tall so I generally design upper pantries with a shallower depth for easier access.

With all that being said, some clients prefer the tall 24" deep pantries , so the decision to use them depends on each persons preferences and habits as well as the size and layout of the kitchen.
