Framed vs. Frameless Cabinet Construction
There are many ways to build a cabinet, but all cabinet construction styles can fall into two categories, called framed and frameless.
Framed cabinets, also known as face-frame cabinets, offer a more traditional look where the door overlays the frame of the cabinet to varying degrees. While the framed cabinet construction style offers more durability, it partially restricts access to the opening of the cabinet.
Frameless cabinets, also known as modern, contemporary, or European frameless cabinets, have no face-face frame that extends into the opening of the cabinet. This allows for greater accessibility, but slightly less durability when securing the doors.
At 1.2.3. Cabinets & Countertops Direct, we offer a variety of options in both framed and frameless styles. The best way to determine the best option for your home is to visit our showroom and experience the many styles on display.
Base, Wall & Pantry Cabinet Construction
In addition to our framed and frameless options, we offer several styles of cabinet construction based on your needs and the layout of your kitchen. Think of these as the ‘building blocks’ of your cabinets!
Wall Cabinets are mounted on the wall and are ‘floating,’ meaning they have no connection to the floor. This cabinet construction method is generally used above countertops, ovens, and stoves.
Base Cabinets are mounted on the floor and generally support your countertops and sink. Kitchen islands are also considered base cabinets. This style of cabinet can also be attached to the wall.
Pantry Cabinets are similar to base cabinets, but are much taller! Sometimes, they can extend all the way to the ceiling and resemble a small closet.
At 1.2.3. Cabinets Direct, we understand that superior kitchen and bathroom cabinets are much more than beautiful designs. It begins with careful selection of today’s finest raw materials and components to ensure that our products are not only visually stunning but built to last. We put in high-quality plywood in all of our boxes which means zero formaldehyde emissions. Our doors are finished with a durable furniture grade conversion varnish to ensure long-lasting protection and beauty for years to come.
