Inset vs overlay cabinets- who knew choosing kitchen cabinets could be so complicated?
Did you know that spending on home improvement projects has risen 3% in the last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic?
More time at home = more need to modify our living spaces for work and play.
We get it, but we also understand the need for affordable kitchen cabinets and finding your dream cabinets easily.
You’ve got your dream kitchen plans ready for your inset cabinets, but you can’t find them as often as you find overlay cabinets.
And when you do find them, you find that they’re ridiculously more expensive than overlay cabinets, especially if they’re custom inset cabinets.
So what’s the difference between inset and overlay cabinets?
And which would be the best choice for you?
Don’t worry; we’re here to help. We’ll also show you where to find them easily and at a fraction of the price.
First, let’s address how each of these styles is different.
Inset cabinets have a unique design. When inset cabinet doors and drawers are closed, they are completely flush with the frame opening.
In other words, inset cabinet doors set into the frame, giving them a unique, custom look.
To open these doors/drawers, you need a push system or hardware, as there is no space for your fingers to open these doors!
Overlay cabinets, however, are not set inside the frame. There are two kinds of overlay cabinets: full overlay and partial overlay.
Full overlay cabinet doors and drawers completely cover the cabinet frame.
There are no gaps between each door/drawer; you need a push system or hardware to open them.
Partial overlay cabinet doors cover the cabinet doors partially, which leaves a gap between each door/drawer.
You don’t need hardware to open them since it provides enough space to open them with your fingers.
So you’re set on inset kitchen cabinets, but you want to find a more affordable inset kitchen cabinet option.
