In our previous posts we’ve shared some of the qualities of the full overlay cabinet, in which the door face practically covers the entire framing of the cabinet set, requiring more hardware. Standard overlay cabinets, however, provide a more modest and classic design, giving your kitchen a more traditional finish, with more than enough face frame, or “reveal”.
Designs for Standard Overlay Cabinets
Overlay refers to the balance between the size and design of your cabinet doors and exposed cabinet face frames. Depending on the type of overlay you’d like for your kitchen cabinets, suitable hardware will have to be installed to accommodate the space or lack thereof in the framing of your home’s kitchen cabinet. You can purchase kitchen cabinets with either overlay style, or you can decide on your overlay selection during the design process if your manufacturer offers custom cabinetry options.
The standard overlay cabinets (or traditional overlay cabinet) is designed with a more exposed frame, with plenty of finger space and convenient maneuverability. The framing around the doors and drawers in a standard overlay cabinet can range from a half to 1 inch of free wooden space. The standard overlay cabinet is one of the most common cabinet installations because it is less expensive and requires very little hardware and interior design.
