One simple detail can change the look of your kitchen completely, and choosing between framed and frameless cabinets is a big one! Once all is said and done, your new luxury cabinetry should be something that represents your personal preference as well as the needs of your particular household. The best way to figure out what you like is to visit a luxury cabinetry showroom and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each style with your designer. Below are the basics to get your toes wet in the world of cabinetry.
What is a Framed Cabinet?
Framed cabinetry has a 1.5-inch to 2-inch border or frame and is constructed to hide the edge of the cabinet box. The face frame adds strength and sturdiness with the cabinet door attached to the frame's side. Doors can be mounted to the inside of the frame, creating a flush-mounted look, or to the front of the frame, leaving a reveal.
What is a Frameless Cabinet?
In frameless construction (also known as euro), there's no face frame and the cabinet doors attach directly to the sides of the cabinet box. Doors typically cover the entire cavity and box in a full-overlay. Because they don't require a frame, frameless cabinets feature full access, allowing maximum use of space
Whatever your needs are, be sure to talk with your designer. They’ll be able to bring that extra expertise, creativity, and flair to your home.
