A 1/2" Overlay means that one half-inch of the cabinet frame is exposed around all the doors and drawers. This has also been called "Traditional Overlay".
A Full Overlay means that there is minimal cabinet frame that is exposed around the doors and drawers. Our standard tolerance is 1/4" reveal around the doors and drawers.
A Framed cabinet construction consists of the cabinet back, floor, sides, and a front stabilizing frame anchoring the box together. The cabinet door is attached to the front frame, which is made of 3/4" thick solid wood material, and is generally 1 1/2" wide.
An Overlay door will rest in front of the cabinet frame / case.
An Inset door will rest inside the cabinet frame / case.
To accommodate the hardware, our standard wall cabinet depth on the inset cabinets becomes 13".
The Beaded inset adds a routed edge on the inside of the door and drawer openings.
Our tolerance for a reveal around the doors and drawers is 3/32".
A Frameless case construction consists of the cabinet back, floor, and sides. This style of cabinet has also been referred to as "European" or "Full Access". A different type of cabinet hinge is utilized to secure the cabinet door to the side of the cabinet case.
The doors and drawer fronts are slightly larger to cover the cabinet case. Our standard reveal on a Frameless cabinet is 1/16" on the sides of the doors and drawer fronts, and 1/4" at the top and bottom of the doors and drawer fronts.
