Measuring & Ordering

Measuring your cabinet components is easy, and ordering is even easier. Here are a few tips that will make your cabinet project go as smooth as possible.

How To Read A Tape Measure

When inputing the width and height dimensions, you can use fractions or decimals. Our calculator will automatically change any fractions into decimals prior to calculation. Example: Input "1 3/4" and it will change to "1.75".

Measuring Cabinet Doors For Replacement

If you are replacing existing cabinet doors or drawer fronts, all you need to do is measure the width and height of the door(s) you want to replace. Always measure the back side of your cabinet door. Measure the width first, followed by the height. Measure to the nearest 1/16", and always measure at least twice to ensure an accurate measurement.

Measuring Your Cabinet Doors

Measuring Your Cabinet Door Opening

If you're not using your old door or drawer front to measure for your dimensions, you will need to measure the cabinet opening. First, measure the width from the left inside edge (or left stile), to the right inside edge (or right stile). Measure to the nearest 1/16" and always measure at least twice. Now, measure the height from the bottom inside edge (or bottom rail), to the top inside edge (or top rail). Measure to the nearest 1/16" and always measure twice. Now you will add to your measurements to account for the desired overlay. The most common and industry standard overlay is 1/2" on each side. So, you will add 1" to your width measurement, and 1" to your height measurement.

Measuring For Double Doors

We recommend the following if you're measuring for double doors (two doors for one opening). Measure the width and height of the opening, the same way described previously for a single door, adding 1" to the width and 1" to the height. Divide the width measurement by 2, now you have the two doors. Now subtract 1/16" from the width of each door to allow for a small gap between the two doors.

Hinge Boring

We offer 4 boring options for Blum/Salice style concealed hinges.

"A" boring has 8mm pilot holes for for press-in or doweled hinges, and is bored 5mm from the outside edge of the door. This is standard and the most common.

"B" boring has 8mm pilot holes for press-in or doweled hinges, and is bored 3mm from the outside edge of the door.

"T" boring is for screw-in hinges, and is bored 5mm from the outside edge of the door. It has small 2mm pilot holes drilled to fit hinge screws.

"U" boring is for screw-in hinges, and is bored 3mm from the outside edge of the door. It has small 2mm pilot holes drilled to fit hinge screws.
