Part 1: Before You Order Your Cabinet Doors and Refacing System from Outside The Box
Learn how to take measurements of your cabinet box so you are able to order the correct door sizes for your DIY kitchen cabinet refacing project. In this video, we will create a drawing of the cabinets that will be refaced and measure each opening (width x height) to get dimensions. From there, we calculate the door overhang.
You have to do more than just replace your cabinet doors. The wood and stain most likely will not match your original cabinet box. In this How-To video, we show you how to measure for our 1/4 inch wood skins that will go over the cabinet box directly.
Moldings and trim are great accents that are also used to hide imperfections such as walls not being perfectly straight. Learn how to measure your cabinets in order to know how many sticks of molding and trim you will need to order.
For replacing your drawer boxes, follow this How-To video in order to get accurate measurements. In order to get the most accurate measurements possible for your new drawer boxes, remove your drawers completely during the measuring process.
No two kitchens are alike. Because every kitchen is unique to the house it was built in, there may be interesting areas that you will have to consider when refacing your kitchen. Learn about some of these possibilities here.
Once you’ve taken all measurements, it’s time to buy your cabinet doors, drawers, and refacing materials!
