Measuring Guides

Follow these 3 steps to be able to quickly and accurately measure your doorway to make sure you get doors that fit your space perfectly.

1. Measure the width of the doorway

Take this measurement in three places – once towards the very top, once in the middle and once just above floor level. There may be a slight variation in the width between the top and bottom of the frame – if this is the case then use the shortest measurement.

2. Measure the height of the doorway

Again, you should do this three times, on the left, in the centre and on the right. There is usually a small difference in the frame, particularly in older houses, and you need to make sure your door fits the smallest space.

Note: if there is a big difference in any one set of measurements (width or height) you may need to replace or realign the door frame before installing your doors.

3. Take both measurements again

It is important that these measurements are accurate, so take them twice just to be sure. 

Being meticulous with your measurements might feel time-consuming when your taking them but it is worth it! It is far more hassle to discover your doors don’t fit half-way through hanging them, and far more expensive too if you’re no longer able to return or exchange them.
