Match Your Cabinet Door
Looking to replace a few cabinet doors or match your current cabinets? We're here to help!
Please fill our Matching Cabinet Door inquiry form to upload pictures of your cabinet doors.
We will need 3 pictures:
- Inside Edge: where the "frame" of your cabinet door meets the panel
- Outside Edge: the edge of the door
- Full View: the front of the door
You will also need to match the joint style of your cabinet door or drawer front. We offer cope-and-stick (often called butt joints), miter, and slab-style construction.

Our wood materials are available in paint grade, natural, and select grades.
What Can I Customize?

What's is MDF?
MDF stands for Medium Density Fiberboard
MDF is a great material option for painting, but it cannot be stained or clear coated. Our wide selection of Thermofoil Cabinet Doors and Drawer Fronts all have an MDF core.
What Does PreBore Mean?
Prebore refers to holes routed on the back of your door for European or Compact Concealed hinges. Cup Style and Bore Distance are very important measurements to understand when ordering prebore. Once you have determined the cup style and bore distance, you can consult our hinge selection guide to find the right hinge for you!
- Cup Only: often used for "screw in" hinges that use wood screws.
- Cup and Dowel: used for "press in" hinges that come with screws and plastic dowels.
Bore distance refers to the distance from the edge of the door to the edge of the "cup". It is critical to check with your hinge manufacturer to see what bore distance works with your hinges.
We offer Cup Only and Cup and Dowel prebore at 3mm and 5mm bore distances.
How are Cabinet Doors and Drawer Fronts Different?
Drawer Front Construction
What are "Lazy Susan" Doors?
Any of our doors can be used for a Lazy Susan application.
The important thing to know is how you will be installing/attaching the doors to your cabinet.
3 of the 4 sides of your doors must be square, so we recommend using Shaker-style cabinet doors.
Examples and measuring instructions:
Bifold or Piano hinge
- Measure the opening and add overlay amount to the hinge side of the door only.
- The stile where the corners touch must be square.
- For the “Back” door - Measure the opening and add overlay amount to the hinge side of the door only. This door will need a larger stile
- For the “Top” door - Measure the opening and add overlay amount to the hinge side of the door only. then subtract 13/16” (thickness of the door it will sit on).
Attached to Lazy Susan
- Measure the opening and subtract 1/8”. This door will need a larger stile
- For the “Top” door - Measure the opening and subtract 1/8”. Then subtract another 13/16” (thickness of the door it will sit on).
Glass Panel Cabinet Doors
All of our doors are routed to accept 1/8" thick glass. You can install using either rubber or wood stops—which we sell at the time of purchase.
We recommend rubber stops because they are easier to install.
- Trim the rubber stops to fit the frame pieces
- Insert the Rubber Stops into the grooves
Please note: CabinetDoorMart does not ship the glass panel.
Construction and Specs
At CabinetDoorMart, our drawer boxes are available in 6 different materials. The front, back, and sides will be 1/2" in thickness. The bottom will be 1/4", and it will be 1/2" recessed. Our drawer boxes come assembled and are available in custom sizes.
What's the Difference Between Doweled and Dovetail?
We offer drawer boxes are created using a dowelled construction. Drilling corresponding holes in the sides of our box allow us to use dowels for assembly and glue them together. This creates an easy-to-handle frame that allows movement but is durable enough to withstand wear from frequent opening and closing of drawers.
The dovetail joint is a type of strong, immovable connection when joined to another piece. It resembles the box and finger joints in that it has pins that intersect with pieces on either side. However, the dovetail differs in one key way: The ends of the pins are wider, so there's no risk of pulling apart at an angle or twisting out.
RTA stands for "ready to assemble." All of our cabinet boxes are shipped flat and arrive ready to assemble. For more information on the cabinet boxes and their dado joint construction, check out our assembly guide.
What's the Difference Between Face Frame and Frameless?
A Face Frame Cabinet Box consists of stiles and rails which make up the front portion of the cabinet—the doors attach to this frame. A frameless cabinet box, on the other hand, does not have the face frame, and so the doors attach to the side walls. For this reason, the side pieces are thicker on a frameless cabinet box than on the face-framed box.
Construction and Specs
Our Cabinet boxes are assembled using dado joint construction. For our base cabinet boxes, the walls and bottom are 1/2" thick and the back panel is 1/4". The toe-kick is 4" in height and will be recessed 3", and the face frame will have 1/2" stiles and rails.
Our upper cabinets have the same dimensions with the exception of the toe-kick, stiles, and rails. The stiles and bottom rail will be 1 1/2", while the top rail will be 2 1/4".
