Cabinet Doors – Measuring for Replacement Doors

“I want to make sure that I have the right sizes.” We often hear from customers – both professionals and do-it-yourself to us at the kitchen fronts this is to replace the rule. followed by: “Can you tell me what size I need?”

Whether good or bad, do not say (or you) will find that the size of the doors replacement necessary, but I can give you the techniques to understand the general dimensions. (Of course, if the doors and drawer fronts in the same size as your current and doors when were these doors will not be damaged or deformed, then the technique is simple: to measure the doors necessary for the purpose of these elements. it is assumed that this is not a viable alternative.

Step one is to determine what type of cabinet. Face, framed or unframed: In general, the cabinet is divided into two different categories. The face-framed cabinets are a more traditional style, while the frameless (also in the European style) are considered more contemporary cabinets. To determine where the image of the car with the doors closed. If the doors and drawer fronts complete the fronts of cabinets, with no more than 1/8 “formed between adjacent doors and drawers (except where fees are at the corners, etc. added) then cover have closets. Frameless face framed cabinets, a difference of at least ¼ “would be – usually more – along the hinge side of door. Opening the door, have face-framed cabinets a border around and between each opening. The frame measures 1-1/2 or more “wide, but sometimes it can take two or more inches wide. When two adjacent cabinets are the total width of the structure between the three openings to be.”

If you have frameless cabinets, your options are limited in size, but there are problems to contend. We will cover this topic in a later article.

The face framed cabinets that you need to make a decision. The choice is how much of the picture to see if they want to close the doors? In other words, how the frame extend to the door? This amount of coverage is called the “overlap”. Technically, the cover has an amount ranging from ¼ “to 1/8″ smaller than the width of the frame. (It is 1-3/8 “for the typical company with 1-1/2 inch frames.) The only restriction is that you have a hinge that works with this recovery option, which should not be a problem must be found for the Most 1/8 inch to 2 “.

What if you want to cover the entire frame? Sorry, you can. Hinges must be at least ¼ “permission to run correctly. So if you have two standard face framed cabinets with 1-3/8″ overlap on the other hand, you (only) ¼ “between the doors. Go to work, but I do not recommend it. you will not be able to open both doors at once, and any misalignment lead to friction.

The options are the most common overlapping ½ “(partly because it is easier to calculate) and 1-1/4″ (because it is the closest viable option for a “full” overlay.) Do not overlap should be on all sides the door, but it is a rule.
