All the information you need – all in once place. Please read below to learn more about each style of cabinet face. Each style offers its strengths and weaknesses depending on your use.
Inset Cabinet Doors are set into the cabinet frame and fit flush with the face of the cabinet when closed. Since the door is flat with the rest of the cabinet, a door pull or knob is needed to open the cabinet. With this type of door, the hinges can either be concealed or exposed. Inset cabinets are desired by many for their smooth, clean appearance, but there is a price to be paid for the look and quality of inset doors.
Face Frame Overlay
A more traditional cabinet style at a more economical price point. Face frames allow for easier installation and door/drawer adjustment. Require separate skin panels to be installed on site, on exposed sides.
Frameless kitchen cabinets, known as “Euro–style,” are those sleek, ultra-modern styles that have no surface face frames, with doors and drawers that fit snugly against the cabinet carcasses. They offer a very smooth, clean look that are ideal for modern decors.’
Bead Mold Inset
Beaded inset cabinets have an additional decorative detail on the face frame immediately surrounding the door or drawer. This detail is known as a bead, or a slight groove and rounded edge cut into the wood. The bead acts as a “frame within a frame” to outline your doors and drawers.
