Topic tags/keywords: question

I am building my first kitchen cabinets.

I plan to have 2” stiles for my face frame, but the bottom rail of the wall cabinet will be 2 1/2” wide so I can have counter lighting under the cabinets.

The doors will have a 1/2” lap.

If I keep the reveal equal around the doors, that means the doors will have a wider lap across the bottom.

Is this normal, or is it done some other way?

i believe the bottom rail should be a bit wider ,should look heavier . so the 1/2” overlap on your doors should be consistant all the way around.
