Cabinet Stiles and Rails question

My question is regarding the correct way to measure stiles/rails when selecting cabinet facings...



in this image when taking a measurement for stiles and rails would the line shown in blue or the one in red be the correct dimension.

Thanks,
Tim

I wish your picture showed the end or the top of the stile.
A 2 stile is very normal.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Measure the full width, edge to edge.

+ 1. I cannot really tell what you are measuring from the picture.

Your picture is fine. Use the red line for measuring.
