Framed vs. Frameless Cabinetry

There are two types of cabinet construction to consider when choosing styles for your cabinets: Framed or European Frameless cabinetry. Both provide a multitude of design possibilities and each has their own unique advantages. Here are some things to consider as you decide which type of cabinet construction is best for you.


Framed Cabinetry

American cabinet manufacturers have traditionally built cabinets using a frame construction. In this type of cabinet construction, the rails and stiles form a 1-1/2 inch face “frame” at the front of the cabinet box. This frame resembles a flat picture frame that is attached to the door front, giving added dimension to the door front.


  • The cabinet doors are secured to the frame for strength and sturdiness.
  • Adjustable hinges, but not always
  • Partial and full overlay, as well as inset cabinet doors
  • Many design possibilities for creating a customized look
  • Flexibility to create more of a “furniture” look

Frameless Cabinetry

Frameless cabinet construction is a European way of manufacturing cabinets that has become popular among American homeowners seeking simple, more contemporary cabinet designs. Frameless cabinetry is sometimes called “full access” cabinetry because it offers greater accessibility by eliminating the face frame. Instead, it relies on thicker box construction for stability. Only full-overlay doors can be used, with hinges attached directly to the sides of the cabinet box.


  • Cabinets do not have a face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box
  • Flat door and drawer fronts, providing a sleek, simple aesthetic
  • Do not have a center stile coming down in the middle of the two cabinet doors
  • Easier access to the items inside
  • More storage space
  • Adjustable shelves
  • Drawers tend to be larger

Caring for your cabinetry is easy. We’ll show you how.

  • “It was a pleasure doing business with everyone at Colonial Craft Kitchens. Our kitchen hutch top looks great, plus, I love all the extra storage space I have now. It was nice to have a positive experience after all the past problems we had with the people who did our kitchen renovations originally. We want to thank you for all of your help, work and time on this re-do.”

From meeting with their designer, who is knowledgeable and professional to the installation of the cabinetry, the craftsmanship is outstanding. Budget was also a concern of ours, not a problem.
