Cabinetry Construction

Most cabinet lines today look similiar on paper. When choosing your cabintery there are some key construction features you want to look for:

  • Plywood sides or all plywood construction
  • Dovetailed Drawers
  • Full extension, soft close drawers
  • and soft close doors are a nice option

The most important quality in a cabinet is the finish. This is going to be critical in how well your cabinets age over time and how well they stand up to daily use. The cabinet lines we have selected exceed the standard for their categories. this is one of the many things that set us apart from the competition.

Framed and Frameless cabinetry

Cabinetry comes in two main construction types: framed and Framless. Each has options, benefits and limitations.

  • Framed cabinets are, as the suggests, built with a face frame of hardwaood on the front of the cabinet box. The doors and glides are attached to these frames. Framed cabinets, including inset have smaller drawers and doors as a result of the accompanying rails and stiles that are present in a framed construction.
  • Frameless cabinets- also known as european or full access cabinets do not have a facefram e. they are made of ¾ thick side material and the doors and glides attached directly to the sides of the cabinetry. This allows for larger openings in a frameless cabinet than in the comparable framed cabinet.
