We are coming to the end of a rather contentious kitchen remodel and have discovered that the interior depth of our upper wall cabinets is only 10 5/8". The exterior of the cabinets is 12" deep, which I understand is standard, but all of our plates are 10 3/4" My contractor is arguing that these cabinets are sturdier as they have a thicker backing, but that doesn't do much good if I can't fit a standard size plate into the cabinet. I went to Home Depot and almost every cabinet had an 11" interior depth. I'm torn as any remedial action at this point is probably going to end up making everything look worse, the crown molding is in and everything. Am I making a big deal out of nothing or should I expect a certain interior cabinet depth? M.
