What makes the fresh men confused in the furniture hardware, is the difference between full overlay cabinet hinges, half overlay and insert hinges. And how to choose the right size for your cabinets. Hope kav can help you with this issue
All the cabinet hinges owns 3 sizes, no matter they are auto hinge or soft close hinges, which is full overlay, half overlay and insert, except some of special angle cabinet hinges. And O crank, 8 crank, 16 crank was the name for overlay in India market, probably because of the feature of the cabinet hinges itself.
For your cabinets, full overlay means the door full covered the side panel, which leaves no space, offering you a beauty look from outside. And half overlay, as we can tell from the word ‘ half’, the side panel was cover by the door with half size, mostly used when there are two doors, we can pick the half overlay cabinet hinges. The last we talked is insert, the panel is inserted by the door, which is opposite with full overlay. Hope these are clear for you all.
