I am 5' 1" - The only problem being that most kitchen cabinets are made for people a "WEE" bit taller - If I keep getting smaller, I am going to have to get a step ladder!!!! Just remeber size is like spice - sometimes "A LITTLE" is better than alot!!!!!

Hello Reanie525i, I know just how you feel. I'm the same height as you. If I ever get the chance to redesign my kitchen, I'm going to make sure all the shelves and cupboards are at a height where I can reach things.

I am 165cm (5'6") and don't think myself of being particularly short (well... unless I am in Holland... there they called me a midget!!), but I am constantly toying with a idea of putting a sliding ladder like they do at bookshops/libraries around the tall kitchen cabinets when we remodel our kitchen... our chairs are being used as much for a step stool for me as sitting purpose.

urmaniac - that's what I would do if I redesigned my kitchen - OR - I would put little kick plates under the cabinets that would pop out for a little "lift". I like the ladder idea - 'cause a kick plate doesn't really get me to the back of the upper shelf

actualy it took me a while to work out Where this Karma points thingy for me was, it`s nice to see that people like your posts, and you know that you`ve helped them out a little though, kinda gives you Insight into the sorts of data that`s usefull and what isn`t.

so in That respect, I guess you could say I use mine as an indicator of what constitutes a good post.

the trick with Karma (like in life) "Give as much as you get!" :P

LOL - That would be great - instead of my bf hitting me in the head when he opens the cabinets I would hit him in the shins - lol - Maybe we need a "Hobbit" house - lol picturing the kitchen!!!!

I did the opposite. I married a woman who makes me look like a giant. Not only that, but her entire family is at least half a foot shorter than I am. I feel like I am 7 feet tall when I go over my inlaws house.
