Be ready with your pen and paper and make a listing of all the kitchen cabinet doors, which includes the drawer fronts and the number of door/drawer handles, and measure the height and width of each door and drawer, making sure that the way to measure is starting at the back instead of at the front and noting all these down.

When you have the noted down all kitchen cabinet doors, drawers with their corresponding measurements, order all of these from your kitchen supplier and when they have arrived, check if there are any damages, so you can inform your supplier for a replacement.
