Cabinets Fit For Royalty, But Affordable For All!

Types of Kitchen Cabinets

As you begin your renovation you are going to have millions of questions. What are my options? What are the differences? How much do they cost? Going into a remodeling project with base information will help you get a quality product for the right price, but it will also help the process move along a lot smoother.

As you are ripping out your old cabinetry and you are beginning to envision what your new, updated kitchen is going to look like, you are either going to see framed or frameless cabinetry.

Face-Frame Cabinets

Cabinets with a face-frame have hinges on the outside of the cabinet box. This gives the look of a frame around all cabinet doors and drawers. Framed cabinets can also come with a full overlay. This means that the cabinets appear to look like the European style frameless cabinetry. There is great structural stability that comes with framed cabinetry, but there are also drawbacks due to the lack of storage space or flexibility from the frame.

Frameless Cabinets

Frameless cabinets are becoming more and more popular. This European inspired design brings a sleek, contemporary style to your home. The main advantage of having the hinges on the inside of the cabinet is that it allows for almost 10% more storage room than in a comparable framed cabinet.

Whether you decide to go with framed or frameless cabinetry you will need to know the basic information on either to make a well educated, efficient decision towards your renovation. Both types of kitchen cabinets have great attributes, but finding the one that is perfect for your new kitchen is up to you.
