It is not a specific answer. Different manufactures will tell you in their literature which is the appropriate height for their pieces. However a decent range falls between 26" and 34"

+1. Check the manufacturers documentation. I've seen anywhere between 24" min. to 36" max., although 30"-36" seems to be the most common. – Tester101 May 10 '12 at 12:07
