countertop overhang and depth standards
So: what would you say is standard countertop overhang? Searching this forum (never a fun task: what's *wrong* with GW programmers? The free software out there is far better than this forum's) there seem to be many definitive answers that vary. Some time ago, however, I'd settled on 1.5? but my KD is insistent this is not true. (She is also not right about many other things as well, however).
There seems to be an issue about what cabinet types you have, frameless v. framed, and then whether you have inset or overlay. That is, some measure from the cabinet edge - certainly the templaters do - and others measure more functionally, from the resulting cabinet door edge. And the locatino of that cabinet door (not to mention drawer) will depend on hardware, no?
So what do you think? Is there no standard? What about when someone insists the standard is 1"? 1.25"? Etc. Does KBNA have a number?
And also, I would imagine the depth will be a function of what countertop edge you choose as well as the thickness of the countertop. Is it standard for countertop thickness to be 1.5"? And in what way does the overhang dependence on edge matter? Is there more overhang with fancier edges?
Thank you wise ones, professional and otherwise...
