Light Switch Height

I am doing my basement over and would like to know how far off the floor should the light switch boxes be mounted. Some in the living space look like they are 42" some 41". Gonna put carpet in so I assume you would figure a 1/2 for that.

I always put them 48" off the floor. Putting them at the same height as the rest is more important then the actual height.

I agree, uniform height is important. I would place them at the same height as the rest of the switches in the house.
