Framed vs Frameless Cabinetry

Framed vs. Frameless Cabinetry… what’s the difference? If you’re not sure, don’t worry, you’re not alone! A lot of people don’t know the difference and we find that there is a lot of confusion regarding Framed vs. Frameless cabinets!

1. Framed Cabinetry: This cabinetry style is perfect for homeowners that are looking for a traditional, furniture feel! The rails and stiles form a 1-1/2 inch face “frame” at the front of the cabinet box in this type of cabinet construction. Sound confusing? To put it simply, this “frame” is similar in appearance to a flat picture frame and adheres to the cabinet door front. This method allows for added dimension to the overall aesthetic of your cabinets.

2.Frameless Cabinetry: Looking for something that is more contemporary? Well, frameless cabinetry might be your answer! European frameless cabinet construction has become popular among American homeowners because of their simple, contemporary design.
