Oh, I thought you were a facelift, you replaced all the cabinets?

The wife and I are just doing a facelift and trying to figure out whats the easiest way to get new cabinet doors, give them measurements or just come in with the cabinet doors and have Home Depot or Lowes work their magic.

We went to the studs. All you see is brand new. We doubled our kitchen space.

If I wanted to just replace the doors, the first thing I would do would be to find out if my cabinets are standard sizes. I would draw everything out and write down the dimensions of the wall cabinets, then the base cabinets. (Also noting which cabinets have drawers. Then you need to decide if you want inset, 1/4 overlay, 1/2 overlay, or full overlay. If your cabinets aren't standard sizes, you will probably need to get custom doors made, if that is the case and money is an an issue, it may be just as cost effective to replace all the cabinets, depending on how big the kitchen is.

Okay, thanks for the info. I'm sure our cabinets are not standard size since they are probably as old as the house (1977). I'll definitely look into it when I get home for R&R.
