Cabinets are an important part of any kitchen or bathroom space. Not only do they provide the storage space required to make it possible for you to keep your items properly cared for, but they also complete the look of a house, bathroom and kitchen. However there are several different types of cabinets that are available on the market today. These types of cabinets are made to fit different individuals’ tastes, styles, and budgets.
Types Of Cabinets
The three types of cabinets that will be discussed in this article are inset, partial overlay, and full overlay. The name of each type of cabinet refers to the way that the cabinet doors fit on the cabinets. These different styles have been made popular over many years of carpentry craftsmanship. Continue reading to learn more about the differences and similarities between these options of cabinets.
One type of cabinets that is available is inset cabinets. Inset cabinets are stylish and classic, with the original examples of these types of cabinets being used in the Victorian era. Inset cabinets are very different from partial overlay and full overlay cabinets in that the doors of the cabinets are set inside the cabinet face frames. All drawers and doors are set inside the cabinet with their faces flush with the rest of the cabinet. Inset cabinets are a great choice for craftsman style or traditional homes.
Lastly, inset cabinets are the most expensive option out of the types of cabinets listed in this article because they require the most amount of handiwork. However, they also provide a very sleek and beautiful look, as well as great functionality.
Partial overlays are another type of kitchen cabinet. They are the type of cabinets that are most commonly used and likely the kind of cabinets that were found in your parent’s house growing up. A cabinet that is made in the partial overlay style will look the most traditional and will also be the least expensive option of those that are listed here. The doors of partial overlay cabinets sit on the front of the cabinet frames so that they cover the contents of the cabinets. They also have an inch or so space that surrounds them, allowing for portions of the cabinet frame to be visible.
Full overlay cabinets are another option that is available. Full overlay cabinets can give a home a modern, sleek look that is elevated by the seamlessness of one cabinet door to another. Full overlay cabinets are similar to partial overlay cabinets in that the doors sit on the front of the cabinet frames. However, full overlay cabinets provide a very different and exciting look in comparison to partial overlay cabinets by leaving no space in between the cabinet doors. The look of full overlay cabinets is a sight to behold, as it makes it almost impossible to see the cabinet frames.
