Measuring Guide

Q. How do I measure and record my cabinet door sizes to insure I receive what I desire?

A. record the actual size cabinet door you need. Amish Cabinet Doors will build the cabinet doors and drawer fronts to the size you specify. On the ordering page you will be guided through steps that will insure that the cabinet door you order is the door you desire. The most common measuring mistake is not to include your desired overlay into your measurements. The normal overlay for a cabinet door on a framed cabinet is 3/8" on each side when exposed hinges are to be used. The normal overlay for a cabinet door on a framed cabinet is 1/2" on each side when hidden hinges are to be used. Please read our FAQ section for more information on measuring for doors or drawer fronts.

  1. Select wood species (oak, maple, cherry, or hickory)
  2. Select the edge profile for the outside edge of your cabinet door or drawer front.
  3. Select the edge profile for the inside edge of your cabinet door or drawer front.
  4. Select the design desired for your raised panel or flat panel cabinet door.
  5. Enter the desired width for your door or drawer front (AMISH CABINET DOORS manufactures doors and drawer fronts in 1/8" increments).
  6. Enter the desired height for your door or drawer front (AMISH CABINET DOORS manufactures doors and drawer fronts in 1/8" increments).
  7. Enter the quantity of doors you are ordering in this size, wood species, and design.

Q. How should I measure when the cabinet doors will be mounted on framed cabinets with hidden hinges?

A. First determine the overlay of your hinges. The average overlay is 1/2" but hinges can be a minimum of 3/8" and a maximum of 1 9/16".

  1. For a one door cabinet add the width of the opening PLUS the total of your two offsets together to get the proper ordering width of your cabinet door. Add the opening height PLUS desired overlay to obtain the proper ordering height of your cabinet door.
  2. For a two door cabinet with no stile in the middle only add ONE offset to the width of each door.

Q. How should I measure when the cabinet doors will be mounted on framed cabinets with exposed hinges?

A. For a one door cabinet add 3/4" to the opening width and opening height. For a two door cabinet with no center stile add 3/4" to the opening width and divide by two for door width. Add 3/4" to the opening height for door height to order.

Q. How should I determine the width of my drawer front?

A. Normally, it is standard that drawer fronts which will be mounted over a door should be the same width as the door. However, some styles of drawer fronts may not follow this standard so use your discretion in measurements.
