The first step is to make a listing of all the kitchen cabinet doors, including drawer fronts and the number of door/drawer handles, and to measure the height and width of each door and drawer, making sure that the way to measure is the right approach starting at the back instead of at the front and noting all these down.
Order for new kitchen cabinet doors and drawers according to the number of kitchen cabinet doors and drawers and their respective measurements from your kitchen supplier and making sure that there are no transit damages when they reach your place.
