Standard measurement cheat sheet

 
 
STANDARD KITCHEN HEIGHTS AND DEPTHS
The average finish height for countertops is 36 inches off the finish floor
The standard depth for finish countertops is 24 inches

Upper counter cabinets are built with an average depth of 12 inches.
Upper cabinets above the refrigerator and other large appliances are often 24 inches deep (twice the average depth) to make accessing them beyond the appliance possible.
Custom-built upper cabinets measure an average of 14 inches deep, often to accommodate oversized dinnerware and food storage
 
STANDARD HEIGHT AND DEPTH OF BATHROOM VANITY
 Standard height of a bathroom vanity is 30- to 32-inches.
The standard vanity depth is 21 inches
 
In a small powder room,  you can gain floor space by trimming at least part of the vanity to 18, 15, or even 12 inches deep
 
For a double sink, you'll need at least 60 inches from side to side, 72 inches if possible.
 
You might also find the 30- or 32-inch standard height of a vanity too low. If so, consider building up the toekick on a stock vanity or ordering a taller one that stands 34 to 36 inches off the floor
 
STANDARD BED SIZES
Standard Bunk Bed Size 39" x 75" Small, for one adult or child; good selection for school-age children; upper and lower
 
Narrow Bunk Bed Size 36" x 75" Small, for one child; good selection for pre-teens; upper and lower
 
Twin Bed Size / Single Bed Size 39" x 75" Small, for one adult; good selection for guest accommodations
 
Twin Extra Long Bed Size 39" x 80" Bed linens can be difficult to locate and purchase
 
Full Bed Size/ Double Bed Size 54"x 75" Wide enough for a large adult or two small adults
 
Queen Bed Size 60"x 80" Best selection for two adults but possibly too small for some
 
California Queen Bed Size 60"x 84"  inches longer than standard Queen
 
Expanded Queen Bed Size 66" x 80" inches wider than standard Queen
 
Super Queen Bed Size 66" x 80"6 inches wider than standard Queen, also thicker
 
King Bed Size 76" x 80" Standard King
 
California King Bed Size 72" x 84" Not as wide but longer than a standard King
 
Grand King Bed Size 80" x 98" For really large and tall people
 
STANDARD HEIGHT FOR HANGING A CHANDILIER ABOVE THE DINING TABLE
 
As far as dining room and kitchen tables, the key thing to keep in mind is that the bottom of the fixture should not interfere with the sight of line between people gathered and sitting around the table. Typically, the measurement is around 36" from the table top to the bottom of the fixture
