Overlay – The overlay is the amount of front frame covered by a cabinet or drawer front piece. Two commonly used terms when describing cabinet overlays are full overlay and traditional (or partial) overlay. When selecting an overlay type, it is important to select the same type for the whole kitchen or bathroom. This creates a continuity of design throughout the space.
The difference between a full overlay and a traditional overlay is the visibility of the cabinet frame. Full overlay covers the entire front of the frame giving a modern, seamless look to the space. Traditional (Partial) overlay doors and drawers have a 2-inch space across the cabinet run, which shows a strip of the cabinet frame.
