Measurements in meters/SM for common things?

In most (sane) countries, the metric system is used. So, what is a resource to find standard measurements for things like doors and ceilings?

EG, an “eight foot ceiling” is very standard in the USA. What’s the equivalent in France? I assume they use some standard cm measurement, not some bastardized fractional conversion.

I found this folder of a Dutch construction firm. Here you can find some guidelines to measurements in meters.
Hope it helps.
