Are Raised panel cabinet doors out of style?
Raised panel doors exude a traditional look for cabinets that many homeowners choose as a replacement. As of this time, however, it is not a trendy kitchen cabinet design element. The same can be said for additional cabinetry features such as partial overlays.
What is the difference between a full overlay and half overlay hinge?
Full overlay doors cover all or nearly all the front edge of the cabinet side on a frameless cabinet. Half overlay doors cover a little less than half (typically 5/16″) of the cabinet side, so that two doors hinging on opposite sides of a 3/4” partition will have 1/8” of space between them.
Does cabinet glass need to be tempered?
Tempered is required for anything within 18″ of the floor. And, most cabinet makers will tell you to go get regular glass to put in the empty frame doors they ship.
