Choice of Cabinet style

Parts reprinted from an article CONTRIBUTED BY BKC KITCHEN AND BATH

Selecting cabinetry for your kitchen isn’t just choosing a door style and finish. It’s also deciding on the cabinet frame construction. Do you prefer traditional or contemporary design? Do you like the look of exposed or hidden hinges? The construction you choose will influence the overall look of your kitchen. Here are three basic options to consider:

Frameless cabinetry If you prefer a contemporary look, frameless construction (also called European construction) is a good choice. A frameless cabinet has no face-frame – just sides, top, bottom and back. Without a face-frame or corresponding support, the frameless box components are thicker than the components of a framed cabinet.

Framed cabinetry If you live in a traditional-style home or prefer a classic look, framed cabinet construction is a great option. In framed construction, component parts make up the sides, back, top and bottom of the cabinet box structure. These parts are attached to and supported by a face-frame which acts as the front of the cabinet.

Inset cabinetry

Plain inset cabinets feature a flat face-frame with no additional detailing. This is a good choice for simple lines and minimal ornamentation. Beaded inset cabinets have an additional decorative detail on the face-frame surrounding the door. This detail is known as a bead or a slight groove and rounded edge cut into the wood and acts as a “frame within a frame” outlining doors and drawers.
