30 inch cabinet

I have 30 inch new cabinets coming in. I was wondering what is the standard height from the floor that the bottom of the cabinet should be?

You do not specify, so I will talk about wall cabinets. The bottom of the wall cabinets should be 54 inches above the floor. That means the top of a 30 inch high wall cabinet will be 84 inches above the floor.( 7 feet)

...and for base cabinets, toes kicks are usually 4 1/2" wide, making the cabinets 34 1/2" high before the countertop is installed.
