I have found flush fronts a bit of a pain.  You have three axes to worry about, depth from the front, rotation left-right, and rotation top-bottom. Plus even spacing in case things are just slightly out of square.




That said the usual clearance recommended is the thickness of a penny on all sides. https://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-tips/techniques/skills/inset-drawers


In doing some research a cent is 1.52mm thick standard.  That's just slightly less than 1/16".   So if your drawer is 1/8" less than width and height of opening, that will give you 1/16" gap.

Can't argue with this at all!!! Take into account warp/twist,moisture change in the seasons. Your doors/ drawer fronts will look like  a-ss in a few years experience has showed me this lesson!
