Understand door types, materials and cabinet face construction to make the right choice when you shop.
Types of Cabinet Doors
Inset: The doors are set inside the face frame instead of on top.
Partial overlay: Doors and drawers are mounted over the face of the box, covering the opening completely and partially covering the finished face frame.
Full overlay: Meaning that the door or drawer face completely overlays the box — it covers not just the opening but the entire face of the box. There is no visible face frame with these cabinets when the doors are closed.
