When you purchase a house, you want to make it yours. You repaint walls, buy new light fixtures, and replace cabinet hardware and towel racks.

This Old House magazine has a guide to standard heights, widths, clearances, depths, and angles for features in every room of your new house.

Because people may appreciate your unique decorating style, but they won’t appreciate banging their heads on a pendant hung lower than they were expecting.
