Overlay (sometimes called “reveal”) refers to the amount of cabinet face frame that is covered by the doors and drawer headers. In the end, the overlay decision is one of personal tastes and budgets.
Most Showplace door styles are offered in two overlays: partial or full overlay. A few door styles are offered in full overlay only. In addition, several styles are offered in elegant inset versions. Full, partial, and inset doors and drawer headers are available on a framed cabinet box.
ShowplaceEVO doors and drawer headers are available ONLY on a frameless (full-access) cabinet box.
What’s the difference?
Here are examples of how the doors and headers are sized on each of our cabinet lines. These images below show a base cabinet with doors and a drawer header.
Doors and headers lay over the cabinet to reveal a more of the front frame.
Full Overlay – Framed
Doors and headers lay over the cabinet to reveal a small portion of the front frame.
Full Overlay – Frameless
Doors and headers lay over the cabinet to reveal very little of the front edges of the cabinet box.
Doors and headers are set inside the cabinet frame opening with 3/32″ clearance. The full 1-1/2″ wide frame components are visible.
