Measuring for new doors with new hinges is very easy.

First step, DO NOT OVER COMPLICATE THE MEASURING PROCESS. New hinges have a lot of adjustment in all directions (up, down, in, out, left, right, etc) so your measurements can be a little off without creating any issues. So relax and move on to step #2.

Second step, you will need to decide which hinge you need for your project. The hinge you decide to purchase will dictate the size of the door. 95% of our customers will choose the standard 1/2" overlay hinge shown below. This is a great hinge that is the industry standard (1/2" overlay) for cabinet makers and cabinet refacing companies from coast to coast.
