The ideal height is the one at which you can reach the top cabinet.
My height is 160 cm.
I really love that I'm tall. And my family see me as a tall girl. LOL!
I'm 5 ft 2 inches tall (158 cm) and I think that I'm relatively short
If you're asking about my opinion, a nice height for a girl would be somewhere between 5'4 to 5'8 (163 to 172 cm)
while a nice height for a boy wold be somewhere between 5'10 to 6'2 (177 cm to 187 cm)
