We are remodeling a kitchen. On one wall, we have counter tops that are 36″ above the floor. On the other side, facing the counter top will be a bar. So the bar and counter top share opposite sides of a stub wall. The recommended height for breakfast bars seems to be 42″. That means there is 6″ from the top of the bar to the top of the counter. If I take away the 1 3/4″ that makes up the bar, the 1 1/2″ that is the top of the stub wall, that leaves 2 3/4″ in which to squeeze an outlet box above the counter. Outlets are about 2 1/4″ wide if placed horizontally, leaving about 1/2″ above the counter. Is that far enough above the counter?
