    Partial vs. fully overlay kitchen cabinets

    Kitchen Fitters

    What are the differences between partial and fully overlay kitchen cabinets? Which would suit the average kitchen in your opinion

    "Hi Joyce
    It depends on the style of kitchen you require, partial overlay has gaps between the doors which would suit a farmhouse style whereas full overlay has no gaps and creates a modern look.
    Partial overlay can be used without handles but handles are required for full.
    Partial is usually the cheaper option.
    Kind Regards Mark"

    "Partial overlay cabinets cover most of the cabinet frame but leave space between the drawers and doors. This is typically the least expensive cabinet option and is a top choice for people who want to leave off hardware. Full overlay leaves no space between each door/drawer and is the reason why it requires hardware. Average kitchen would be suited by both just depends on what your willing to spend."
