Be sure to double check you
measurements. If you are not using your old doors to order sizes, just add 1"
to the height and width of your cabinet openings for both doors and drawer fronts. This
gives you a 1/2" overlay all the way around the door or drawer front. List each
If you have a door
opening that uses two doors butted together, measure the width of the
opening, divide that in half and only add 3/8" (not 1/2") for each
door. For example: A 20 inch opening with two butting doors would need
two 10 3/8" wide doors. This will give you room to adjust the center
gap between the two doors after they are hung. You still add 1" to the
height of the doors.
Always list the width
first. (Example 16*28 door / 16*4 drawer front )
What can happen when you
don't? A good example of what can happen concerns the sets of doors over most
refrigerators and sometimes over stoves. The openings in these two places in the
kitchen are often wider than they are tall. That means, if you make the mistake of
listing the height first, the wood grain will be running the wrong way and you will
have to re-order. This is the number one mistake people make when ordering. So
please double check. Remember, measure twice so we only have to cut once. (Of
course this is not a problem with our solid color doors since there is no grain.)
What About Lazy Susans?
Lazy Susans doors are simple to measure. Simply measure from the
front edge of each side to the farthest point in the back (A) and from the top to bottom
(B) and mark your measurement with LS (Example: 11*27 LS ) List lazy susans as 2
doors. We will miter the back edges of the 2 doors to create the 90 degree angle you
will need when installing them.
