Above Counter Outlet height?

We are in the process of re-doing our kitchen and our electrician asked us how high we wanted the outlets above the counter? Anyone have any idea if there is some sort of standard outlet height for a 36 1/2 " base cabinet plus countertop?

Somewhere around 8-12" above the countertop is common which works out to around 44-48" AFF (above finished floor).

It's up to you. Don't forget the height of the backsplash.

Height

The bottom of the wall cabinets are usually 54 inches above the floor.

I normally install them at 48" to the top of the box from the finished floor.
