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. That price is between 15-30% more than overlay doors. Beyond the increase in price, there are a couple of other things to keep in mind with these doors. Cabinets with inset doors provide the smallest amount of storage space, making the storage of large items sometimes difficult. Also, the expansion of wood caused by high levels of humidity can sometimes cause rubbing to occur between the door and the frame. A couple of examples of inset cabinetry are below.


Our Inset cabinetry features a perfectly flat face frame with no additional detailing, making it a good choice for Mission, Shaker and modern cabinets that favor simple lines and minimal ornamentation.
