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.
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.
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.
“When our kitchen contractor first met with us, he questioned as to what we most wanted highlighted in our new room. We both responded the same, “cabinets.” Our contractor then recommended Colonial Craft Kitchens to us. Wow! Talk about an excellent company. (more…)
“We hired Colonial Craft to redesign our kitchen as part of a whole house renovation. We were so impressed with the quality of their product and the design ideas they proposed that we had them provide new cabinetry for the entire house including bathroom cabinetry, built-in television centers for our master bedroom and family room, and a hideaway unit. We worked with Nora on the design and we were incredibly happy with the process.
