Q: I am remodeling my kitchen at the end of July using IKEA cabinets, but I've run into a design problem: I want the upper cabinets to be ceiling-height, but my ceiling is 7' 6". IKEA sells 30-inch and 40-inch upper cabinets.

If I go with the 40-inch cabinets, I'm left with just 15 inches between the lower and upper cabinets, while the standard seems to be about 18 inches.

Is 15 inches too little space? I would use shorter cabinets over the sink and stove, to give at least an extra 10 inches over each.

Please help!
