How to measure cabinet doors & drawers

Before taking measurements, we recommend that all doors and drawers are labeled and organized in a way that each measurement can be correlated to a door or drawer. To get an accurate measurement you must measure the width of the door and the height.
 

How to measure for hinges

To figure out what type of hinges are needed for your cabinet doors you must first take the measurement of the width of the door and also the width of the opening on the cabinet box. Input these measurements here (in decimal form- a conversion chart is below to view) and the outcome is the measurement hinge you will need.
 

How to create an account & place your order

When all measurements and information have been completed, you are now ready to place your order. Our ordering system can be access here, or through any "order now" buttons throughout the website. Here is also a tutorial on how to navigate and place and order.

Frequently asked questions

    nuDoors is a replacement cabinet door manufacturer in West Berlin, New Jersey. We are dedicated to manufacturing the best quality cabinet doors for our customers and strive to make our customers satisfied.
  • What are nuDoors made of?
    All of the nuDoors products are made from 3/4" HDF. HDF is commonly known as high density fiberboard. This material versus traditional wood is much more sustainable and has plenty of benefits, like no bridging, moisture resistant and much more. Using this HDF also allows for single piece doors to be made, which are nothing like the usual 5 piece cabinet doors in most homes.
  • What is the price per door?
    nuDoors conducts all of the pricing by square footage. With this being said, every door is going to cost different from the next if the measurements are different. Below are 2 examples of how the pricing is calculated. 24" x 36" is $120 if purchased unfinished 18" x 9" is $22.50 if purchased unfinished Both of these calculations were based off of $20.00 per square foot.

  • Is it cheaper to replace cabinet doors versus painting them?

Which makes it difficult to clean, prep, paint and have a beautiful outcome when the cabinets are refinished.

We can however, gather your information and location and send out an alert to contractors that purchase doors through us to see if they are interested. Those who are interested in working with you will be emailed to you with their contact information. From here, it is your responsibility to contact the contractors further. If this is something you are interested in, please email us at sales@nudoors.com with your zip code and what you are looking to get done. We hold no liability to the contractors that we referred.
  • How accurate are the doors to the sizes that are inputted?
    Here at nuDoors our machinery has the ability to exactly match the measurement needed down to the 1/100". This allows for our doors to be extremely accurate to what your needs are.
  • Can I return my order?
    nuDoors does not allow returns. This is because all of our products are custom made to fit your desired measurements and cannot be used again.
  • Can I cancel my order?
    The only way that an order can be cancelled is if it has not begun production yet. This means that if pieces have already started or have been cut, there is no way for the order to be cancelled. However, if you are past this deadline and really would not like your order anymore, we can stop the production, we just cannot refund the order.
  • What is the refund policy?
    No refunds are dispersed on custom orders. The information submitted is expected to be looked over and double checked by the customer to ensure that everything is correctly inputted. If the mistake was on NuDoors, we can either remake or refund what was wrong whether it was individual doors or the whole order. But this is the only instance in which a refund or a free remake will be done on any orders. For more detailed information on the refund policy, please visit the shipping & policy page.
  • How do I measure my existing cabinet doors?
    It can be extremely common for there to be mistakes when gathering measurements of existing cabinet doors. To make sure that this does not happen during your ordering process, we recommend watching our video, "How to measure your current doors to ensure a perfect match." Here is the video,
  • What is an overlay?
    Overlays which are sometimes referred to as reveals are the amount to which the doors extend over the face frame of the cabinet. The most common overlay is 1/2", which means that the doors is covering a 1/2" on each side of the actual cabinet box. If you need help on measuring overlays, please refer to our videos with step by step instructions on how to measure an overlay.
  • How do I measure for an overlay?
    Measuring your cabinet doors for an overlay is a bit tricky. There are certain precautions to take when making sure it is being measured accurately. We recommend watching our video, "A Guide: to Checking Your Overlay." Here is the video,
  • How do I measure for a 1/2" overlay?
    Measuring for an overlay is tricky but will become more easy with practice. A 1/2" overlay is when the cabinet door is covering a 1/2" of the face frame once attached. If there is a 1/2" overlay, then we recommend purchasing the 1/2" overlay hinges as well if they are needed. We also recommend watching out video, "How to measure for a 1/2" overlay." Here is the video,
  • How do I measure a full overlay on my cabinet doors?
    Full overlays can be hard especially when it is done for the first time. A full overlay allows for the doors to seamlessly be attached without the actual face frame showing. We recommend watching our video, "How to measure for a full overlay kitchen cabinet." Here is the video,
  • How do I measure and order a lazy susan?
    At nuDoors we automatically make lazy susans to be like the picture provided below. This style of a lazy susan is commonly known as a "butt lazy susan." This is when one of the doors is extended 3/4" and the smaller door ultimately butts up against this space. This kind of lazy susan is typically attached to a carousel. The profile on the wider door will be tailored so that the 3/4" increase does not mess with the exposed part of the door. For measuring purposes we recommend taking the measurement of both doors. If this cannot be done, we advise taking the measurement of the longest doors and inputting this as both of the dimensions. On the ordering system there is a drop down that allows for you to mark what doors are lazy susans within the order.
  • How to measure a double opening?
    Double openings on cabinets is not an extremely common scenario. Below is a video linked to show how to proper measure a double opening cabinet. Here is the video,
  • How do I convert my measurements from fractions to decimals?
    This is something that a lot of our customers tend on having difficulty with. In order to create a decimal from a fraction, you divide the numerator (the number on top) by the denominator (the number on bottom). For example, 26 7/8, you will divide 7 by 8 and get .875 which will make this measurement 26.875. 18 3/4, you will divide 3/4 and get .75 which will make this measurement 18.75.
  • What are stile and rails?
    The stiles are the vertical components that are raised on the sides of the door. The rails are the horizontal components that are raised on the top and bottom of the doors.
  • What happens to the stiles & rails on drawer fronts?
    By default, nuDoors will make the rails half the size of the stiles on drawer fronts. This is because the drawers have a much smaller height resulting in less surface for the profile to compliment the size. Splitting the size of the stiles will allow for the doors and drawers to have a more seamless match. If you would like for this not to happen, please input the measurements as a door so the stiles and rails will stay the same.

  • How do I know what hinges I need?
    Hinges all depend on the overlay that your cabinet doors will have. With this being said, the overlay must be determined prior to selecting the hinges to make sure the appropriate one is being selected.

  • What if I want the stiles and rails to be different sizes?

    If any of our products exceed 60" in either height or width, there may be an additional invoice billed to your account email address. Through our software, the shipping is calculated via FedEx, but, with larger items and heavier weights, this can cause the shipping estimate to be off.

When the order is received, we ship out the extra paint purchased within a day or two, separate from the doors and drawers. This way the boxes can be painted prior to the doors being installed. All of our paint products are 10% sheen.
  • Why are my doors not the measurement I submitted?
    We have had this issue arise a few times when customers have received their doors and began measuring to decipher which door goes where. One of the biggest problems when it comes to measuring is that you must use the same tape measure for all of the steps during this process. Tape measures, although very close to one another, can be different in the slightest way when it comes to the measurements. With that being said, if the measurement was 25.25x30.75 on one tape measure, it may be 25.375x30.875 on another. This is because this new tape measure might be off by that 1/8". So make sure to use the same tape measure for both measuring and installing.
  • Are the doors numbered or labeled?
    Unfortunately nuDoors does not number or label any of the doors. The best way to reference which door is what is to measure each door and check with the parts list that was in the order confirmation email.
  • What primer and paint is used on nuDoors products?
    If your doors and drawers are selected to be either primed or painted, nuDoors uses Enduro products. For the priming process we use Enduro Professional Water-Based White Undercoat, which can also be purchased separately. For the painting process we use both the Enduro Professional Water-Based White Undercoat and then we use the Enduro Water-Based Pro Series Polyurethane as the top coat. Our stock paint color is white but we can do custom colors as well.
  • What is the sheen percentage on the paint nuDoors uses?
    Sheen is the amount of light that the reflects from the paint on the surface. All of our paint that we use and sell is 10% sheen.
  • Can you tint paint to my desired color?
    Yes, nuDoors has the ability to tint paint right here in our facility. We can create almost any color that you may need for your cabinets or projects.
