Kitchen cabinet Types: Frame-less VS Framed.

October 17, 2019

Generally, there are 2 different cabinet styles: 

Frame-less  and Framed. 

So what are The difference? 


This is an example of traditional framed cabinets with insert doors: the doors are installed inside the frame = flush. Usually, they come with exposed hinges.


This is the most Luxurious type of cabinetry. It takes a lot more time AND skill to build a kitchen like that because frames and cabinets are joined together and Then painted as a one element.


There is no tolerance for mistakes - if something is off by 1/16'' - the doors will be scratching the frames while closing.      


The installation is also very time consuming and requires tremendous amount of  skill to do everything perfectly. 


As a result of the above, traditional Framed cabinets are the most expensive cabinets on the market.




Frame-less kitchen cabinets on the other hand, are build completely differently. 


Basically, its a cabinet and a door.


The doors are installed with concealed hinges  mounted directly to the cabinet box - and together with matching side panels that create that Sleek modern look that many people like. 


All modern style kitchens are based on frame-less  cabinets.
