Kitchen Cabinets: Perth Homeowners Terminology
Posted: Jun 29, 2017
Every field of human endeavour has its own unique lexicon to learn and understanding some of the terminology can be an advantage. By knowing some professional terms, you can communicate your needs more effectively and understand expert advice. When discussing kitchen modular cabinets, it’s helpful to understand how these terms can affect prices and complexity of the units you might want to purchase. Let’s take a look at some common terms used to describe kitchen cabinet doors and drawers.
Kitchen cabinet doors, tend to come in three types, they are inset, partial overlay and full overlay.
Inset Cabinet Doors:
Inset doors have small hinges that are mounted directly on the face frame or just inside it, and the hinges are usually visible when the cabinet door is closed. Inset cabinet doors are very traditional looking, and they were in common use in the early 20th century. The facing of these drawers and doors is in the same plane as the cabinet boxes leading edge. There is less storage inside the drawer or cabinet because the inset reduces the amount of space available. This kind of classic design is still available, but it comes at a price, and the reduced amount of storage is a problem for many people.
Partial Overlay Cabinet Doors:
Partial overlay kitchen cabinet doors are an upgrade from inset designs. They are mounted covering the face of the box, covering the opening and partially covering the face frame. The amount of accessible space is still reduced somewhat, but it is possible to install a lot of useful hardware. Some people, don’t like partial overlays because there is a lot of visible face frame and the drawer and doors can appear to dot the surface.
Full Overlay Cabinet Doors:
Full overlay doors are also known as Euro style cabinet doors, and they are the most modern option. As a full overlay, these doors and drawers entirely overlay the drawer or cabinet box. There is no face frame visible at all when the doors or drawers are closed. The hinges that are used allow opening and closing without hitting adjacent drawers and doors. This gives full overlay cabinets a clean and continuous appearance. As well as looking modern and sleek, they also maximize the amount of space in the box. However, these kinds of cabinets are the hardest to fit for a novice, so extra care should be exercised to obtain the best results.
