if the measurements work out, height depth, distance from top of floor cabinets, to bottom of wall cabinets, for example, it should be, I would think, but I am no expert

I have a kitchen from hell. It was originally designed for two person use with alterations to cabinet design built in to accomodate my 5ft tall mom. She had always had trouble dealing with working at standard height counters and cabinets. Well both my parents have passed away. The house is now ours. The cabinets are oak from the mid-90's. There are 4 of us and not one of us is under 5 8" tall. Cannot afford complete renovation which I think may be the only solution. If anyone has ideas they would be greatly appreciated.e

Etta McFadden - I believe you can raise the bottom cabinets by placing on a base to raise them. Of course, it may affect the distance between the bottom and top cabinets if you cannot raise the tops as well.
