One of the first steps in selecting new cabinets for your kitchen remodel is deciding on a cabinet type. There are three main types of cabinets to choose from – frameless, framed, and inset. Each type has its advantage and purpose, however, there is truly no right or wrong answer. Whether you are looking for frameless, framed, or inset cabinets, or you are not sure which direction to go, this guide will help you make your decision.
Frameless cabinets are often seen in modern and contemporary kitchens. In frameless cabinet construction, there is no face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box. Instead, cabinet doors are attached directly to the box, leaving a simple and clean aesthetic view when installed.
If you are interested in frameless cabinets, here at Cabinet IQ we have two lines that offer frameless cabinetry – Bellmont and Design-Craft. Both lines have endless style and color options, and you are guaranteed to find the perfect selection for your frameless cabinet kitchen.
Framed cabinets are often called the traditional American cabinet. In framed cabinet construction, the face frame is attached directly to the cabinet box creating strength and sturdiness. Framed cabinets are often seen in all different styles of kitchens ranging from traditional, transitional, and modern.
If you are interested in framed cabinets, here at Cabinet IQ we have two lines that offer framed cabinetry – Kraftmaid and Yorktowne. Both lines have endless style, color, and overlay options, and you are guaranteed to find the perfect selection for your framed cabinet kitchen.
Inset cabinets are often seen in minimalistic kitchens. Inset cabinets are when the doors sit directly inside of the cabinet frame, leaving the entire cabinet frame visible. Inset cabinets are more expensive than other types of cabinetry, due to the precise measurements required to assure the doors and drawers fit seamlessly within the face frame.
If you are interested in inset cabinets, here at Cabinet IQ we have one line that offers inset cabinetry – Yorktowne Historic. This line has endless style and color options, guaranteed to fit the vision for your inset cabinet kitchen.
In conclusion, there are advantages in choosing a frameless, framed, or inset cabinet. Whether you are interested in a mid-century modern kitchen with frameless cabinets, a traditional looking kitchen with framed cabinets, or a clean transitional kitchen with inset cabinets, you cannot go wrong. It all comes down to your specific wants, needs, and personal aesthetic desired for your kitchen. No matter if you choose a frameless, framed, or inset cabinet, Cabinet IQ is here to help you bring your dream kitchen to life.
