What Are Framed Cabinets And Why They Are So Popular?

As the name suggests, framed cabinets are designed in a profile wherein there is a face frame covering the front of the cabinet box.

Due to this design, the framed cabinetry of the doors is attached to the face frame itself, allowing for more stability for the box, creating a strong, sturdy cabinet.

The common name doing rounds for this type of cabinetry is American style or “traditional” cabinetry. From our range of framed cabinets, you can choose between contemporary or transitional door styles. Some of the better-known styles of framed cabinets are

  • Inset cabinetry

  • Standard overlay cabinetry

  • Full overlay cabinetry

  • Inset Cabinetry

Inset cabinetry available in the Kitchen cabinet store near me has this dynamic appearance which can transform the look of a standard cabinet with a full overlay door. They create a sleek and minimalist appearance. The specialty of inset cabinet style is the doors and drawers which rest inside of the cabinet face frame openings. As a result, you get a full view of the cabinet frame whilst there is also some minimal spacing or gaps between the cabinet components.

Overlay Cabinetry

The term ‘overlay’ is used in cabinetry to refer to the amount of cabinet face in the cabinet doors and drawer fronts overlap. ‘Reveal’ is the term to describe the amount of cabinet face frame or box visibly when the doors and drawers are closed. By and large, there are two types of overlays:

Standard: In this design, the door and drawer faces are slightly larger than the openings. There is also a slight overlap on the face frame.

Full: Because the door and drawer faces are larger than the openings, they overlap the front and leave only a small visible reveal.
