Partial or Traditional Overlay

Partial or Traditional Overlay – Traditional or Partial overlay doors and drawers are defined by the fact that there is a consistent 2-in strip of visible frame across the run of the cabinets. The visible spacing between the door and drawer fronts is the most defining detail of this type of cabinet.
Traditional (partial) overlays are the most common and traditional type of cabinetry. The common use of this type of cabinet means that it is typically the more affordable style of cabinetry. Many prefabricated cabinets include traditional overlays. Another cost saving feature of this style of cabinet door is the fact that less precision is needed to hang the door as it does not have to be matched precisely. This is different from a full overlay, which requires a high level of precision and must be matched to the frame exactly.
