What is a Toe Kick?

Toe KickA toe kick is the area between the base cabinet and the floor. It is also referred to as the toe space.

A toe kick is the recessed area at the bottom of a base cabinet. Toe kicks are built into bathroom vanities and kitchen cabinets to allow homeowners to be more comfortable as they are working on the counter-top. The ergonomic design reduces the amount of space that is needed in order for a person to reach the work surface, which eases the amount of stress that is placed on the back and hips. Homeowners can place their toes in the recessed place beneath the cabinet doors in order to have better balance as they are working. Toe kicks are available in wood, metal and plastic, and holes may be cut in them to allow space for vents. Toe kicks may become damaged over time, but they are easy to replace. Custom toe kicks are available for special or unique kitchen designs.
