What's the best way to make a part reusable and sizable in an assembly?

I design custom cabinets and build them as assemblies. We have many different cabinet door styles. What I would like to do is have each cabinet door style built as a part or a sub assembly and then when I'm building my cabinet assembly have a rectangle sketch that defines the size of the door. I know I can have configurations for the doors (which is how I do it now) but because of our many different door styles and almost endless sizes of doors I end up adding one or more configurations with every cabinet I design, then if I change the size of the cabinet assembly, I end up having to change the door to a different configuration. So is there a way to have one part (or sub assembly) for each door style, then be able to add that to an assembly (often more than one of the same door style at different sizes) and have the size determined by a sketch in the assembly?
