Thanks for a quick rundown! I'm always coaching my clients on these standards and it's nice to be able to call them standards, because it quells people's nerves when they know they are the commonly accepted dimensions. Especially when they are thinking much different sizes.

These "standard" heights are great starting points. Looking at Universal Design it is important to understand the users (taller or shorter), multi-generational homes/aging in place ADA standards and children (now, future). Realizing the kitchens are remodeled after 10-30 years or often when a new owner buys a home, we should be building kitchens and bathrooms that work for the owners and/or a variety of height needs.
