Framed Cabinets have been a staple of American cabinetry for decades, and they're still popular among today's homeowners.
Framed cabinets have a face frame that covers the front of the cabinet box, as the name implies. Both stiles and rails are 1-1/2” wide and 3/4″ thick and the actual face frame looks like a picture frame.
In a framed cabinet, the additional structure of a front face frame makes the cabinet's case more solid and strong.
The cabinet doors are attached to the frame, giving the door front dimension. The face frame also contributes to the squareness of the cabinet.
Framed cabinets are easier to install, and they provide a lot of stylistic options because they may accommodate any type of door and drawer front. The manner in which the doors and drawers are joined to the face frame results in a variety of appearances.
Frameless cabinet construction is a European method of cabinet manufacture that has gained popularity among American homeowners looking for simplified, more modern cabinet designs.
Frameless cabinets, by definition, do not have a front frame attached to the cabinet box. Instead, the cabinet is level with the cabinet box, giving it a more sleek and clean appearance
The face frame for the cabinet is created by the actual cabinet door. This implies that the hinges on both types of cabinets work differently. Frameless cabinets are hinged and fastened to the cabinet box directly.
Frameless cabinets may be entirely customized to match your specific requirements and preferences, including appearance and practicality.
The adjustable hinges allow you to open cabinets partially or completely depending on the exact arrangement of cabinet doors, such as if they are tucked into a corner.
Frameless alternatives let you have two cabinets side by side without the stile obstructing storage space. Without a face frame, you gain a few inches each cabinet, which adds up quickly.
