Vinyl Kitchen Doors

Most of our painted doors are made from Ash however we have other solid woods available too.

The beauty of gloss kitchen doors and drawer fronts is that they suit any kitchen and personality; black, white, and cream give a crisp and clean look, while bright and vibrant colours give a more fun and playful image.

How to measure for replacement doors

    • Draw up a rough plan of your kitchen showing all the doors and drawer fronts in the room.
    • Count the number of doors and drawer fronts to make sure you have accounted for all doors and drawer fronts.
    • Make sure the existing doors and drawer fronts don’t have any large gaps around them. The gap between adjoining doors and drawer fronts is usually 4mm.
    • Measure the doors only, not the cabinets.
    • Measure the back of the doors rather than the fronts as the back of the doors are usually the squarest part of the doors.
    • Measure the height of the door first, followed by the width of the door in millimetres. Write the measurements on to your plan (measure in millimetres rather than inches or centimetres for a more precise measurement.)
    • Measure each door individually as some doors might look the same size but might be a slightly different size
    • Once you have measured all of the doors and checked that you have got the correct amount of doors and drawer fronts we would recommend double checking your measurements and ticking each one off to make absolutely sure you have measured each door and drawer front correctly.
