BASE CABINETS | FRAMED vs FRAMELESS

Recommended Posts

Hello.  

 

I am currently setting my "Base Cabinet Defaults" for a new project.  Under "Box Construction" what is the difference between Framed vs Frameless if the "Door/Drawer Overlay" is a "Inset."   Can someone please explain.  

 

Thank You!!

Inset doors and drawers usually have a frame.  It is referring to the front of the cabinet.

Frameless is also called European by alot of people and the Doors/drawers are all Full Overlay (with 1/16 reveal)

 

Framed Cabinets can have Inset or Full/Partial Overlay Doors and Drawers as Java Tom mentioned

 

Frameless and Inset are not usually used together in Kitchen or Bathroom Cabinets unless you are trying to replicate a Furniture Type piece where this is quite often done...

I've taken to only using framed in the DBX, for frameless I just use a 3/4" frame. Some advantages when hacking cabinets, a lot easier when the client changes things, started doing it when I took on a frameless line that uses 5/8 sides (metric something I think?)
