Are you ready to replace your kitchen cabinets?

Framed Cabinets

The cabinetry is often the first element that people see when they walk into a kitchen. As a striking focal point, it has the potential to enhance the beauty of the entire space. Today’s cabinetry is defined by two major categories: framed and frameless. Framed cabinets are designed with a solid frame that extends beyond the width and past the ends of the cabinet box. It’s considered the more traditional style of the two categories and can be commonly found in homes throughout North America. Framed cabinetry offers three overlay door styles to choose from, standard, full, and inset. The variety alone is a big reason why so many homeowners opt for framed cabinetry.

Frameless Cabinets

Frameless cabinetry is considered less traditional than framed, but only because it’s notably more popular in Europe than the United States. This design offers full access to the cabinet interior, and the cabinets are commonly attached directly through the side panels. Frameless cabinets provide a large opening, allowing for wide drawer boxes with ample room for plates and cookware. Homeowners often choose frameless cabinets over framed due to their simplicity and accessibility. One of the largest benefits of choosing frameless cabinetry is their flexibility in design.
