Understanding Cabinet Overlay
One of the most requested but often misunderstood cabinet features if the type of overlay. Overlay refers to the amount the cabinet doors and drawers cover or lay over the base of the cabinet.
At SeaGate homes, our first and second level cabinet designs feature Standard Overlay.
In this picture, note how much of the cabinet frame is visible around the door and drawers. That is typical of a Standard Overlay.
Most of our third and fourth level cabinet styles feature Full Overlay.
In this image, notice the almost non-existent spacing between the cabinet doors and drawers.
It’s quite a difference. On a standard overlay, there is up to and sometime over an inch of exposed base between the doors. On the full overlay cabinets, there is typically less than ¼” between doors.
Full overlay cabinets typically cost slightly more than standard overlay due to the extra material and design specifications required, but an added benefit is that the level 1 hardware is included due to the inability to open the cabinets without them.
So how do you choose which option is best?
It basically comes down to aesthetics, personal preference, and price. Our design consultants can help you work either look into your personal style and selections.
