Face frame with inset

Inset cabinetry showcases doors and drawers that fit precisely inside the face frame openings. This type of cabinet construction gives a full view of the cabinet frame. Clean lines, flush doors, and the options of exposed or concealed hinges are features of inset cabinetry.

Overlay cabinetry features door and drawer fronts that almost completely cover the cabinet face, revealing 1/4” of frame between cabinet units. This creates a continuous look and minimizes the visible gaps between each cabinet door.



Frameless cabinetry is sometimes called “full access” cabinetry because it offers greater accessibility by eliminating the face frame. To do so, the cabinet relies on thicker box construction for more stability. Only full overlay doors can be used with hinges attached directly to the sides of the cabinet box.
