  1. 1

    Open the door or the set of doors and measure the width of one door. Hook the tape measure to the outside edge of the door and pull it straight across to the other side.

  2. 2

    Note the measurement and measure and mark the width of the second door, if there is one.

  3. 3

    Hook the tape measure on the bottom of the door and pull it straight up to the top edge. Read and note the measurement for the door height.

  4. 4

    Measure the depth of the louvered door. The typical interior door is 1 3/8 inch and exterior doors are 1 3/8 or 1 3/4 inch deep, unless they are custom built.
