Terms You'll Hear

 

Throughout the design process, you'll come across certain terms used to describe the basic structure of different cabinetry. These terms will help you better articulate what you love, like and want to complete your kitchen.

 

 

Panel Style

Our door designs come in three panel styles that have an impact on the overall feel of your space.

Slab

Slab-style doors have the look of a solid center panel with no ornamentation.

Recessed

A recessed panel door has a flat center panel set back inside the frame of a door.

Raised

A raised panel has an elevated center panel and is somewhat decorative.

 

Overlay

Overlay refers to how much of the door and drawer fronts cover the cabinetry frame. Hardly any of the frame will be visible behind a full-overlay door, while half-overlay doors leave more room around the frame.

Full-Overlay

A full-overlay door has very little frame showing around each door and drawer front for a seamless look.

Half-Overlay

This style shows some cabinet frame around each door front.
