How to Measure Lazy Susan Doors

A Lazy Susan is a type of circular shelving unit that rotates and is often found within kitchen cupboards. Lazy Susans can have multiple levels, making them useful products for storage and access. Homeowners use Lazy Susans to store common kitchen items such as pots, pans, or toasters. Lazy Susan cabinets are often found in the corner of a kitchen unit with dual doors that are comprised of two pieces of material.

To measure Lazy Susan doors, follow these simple steps:

  1. Measure from the outer edge of the first door to the place where the two doors meet.
  2. Next, measure from the top to the bottom of the first door to find the height. Record your measurement.
  3. Measure from the outer edge of the second door to the place where the two doors meet. Measure from the top to the bottom of the second door to find the height. Compare the height of the second door with the first to see if they are the same size or different (most Lazy Susan doors are the same size).
  4. Add an overlay and subtract 3/4-inch for the piano hinge to be placed in the corner of the two doors.
  5. List doors separately to make sure that hinge boring is only requested for one of the doors.
  6. Make a square-edge profile on the space of the door that is to hold the piano hinge.

Enjoy the accessibility and storage options that your new Lazy Susan offers!
