the door is completely flush with the face frame, it uses a full
inset hinge. Typical butt hinges fall into this category.
the door overlays the face frame completely, without a rabbet on
the back edge, it uses a overlay hinge. The overlay can be
predetermined (1-1/4'' to 1-3/8'') or variable. The advantage of
a variable overlay hinge is that it can be mounted anywhere on the
width of the face frame, allowing you to determine how much of the
frame is visible.
Since the amount of overlay you choose affects the overall width
of the door, we recommend that you determine overlay and select
the appropriate hinges before making or ordering your doors.
