OK, we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel. I have a contractor who is telling me that we should hang the cabinets 2" lower than normal because my wife is short. He says that he does this sort of thing all the time. But then the kitchen design guy is telling me not to do that due to the convenience of having the extra room between the counter top and the upper cabinets. Then there is the issue of light, if you hang the cabinets 2" lower you get more of a shadow on the counter top.
I am going crazy with all of these little detail decisions. Any help would be great.
