What are Frameless Kitchen Cabinets?

Frameless kitchen cabinets are cabinets in which the doors cover the entire cabinet face which is also commonly referred to as an overlay door. Frameless cabinets derive their structural integrity from the back panel, which is attached to the top, bottom and sides of the box with dado joints. They are built without the 3/4 inch frame of solid wood which slightly obstructs the openings of framed cabinets. This difference in construction offers various important advantages, beginning with the fact that it requires less wood. Check out the ways that frameless cabinets can update your kitchen and increase your storage space:

Why Use Frameless Kitchen Cabinets

A recent surge of interest in frameless cabinets has made them much more widely available in this country. Sometimes called "full access cabinets," frameless cabinets offer the greatest amount of storage possible, since there is no frame obstructing 15 percent of the volume. For this reason, they are the best choice for any kitchen where space is at a premium.

Their doors and drawer fronts have full overlay so that all gaps are uniform and the entire look is very smooth and furniture-like. Hinges are on the inside. This smooth construction allows many fashion-forward, edgy materials to be used, including glass and various alternative materials. Frameless cabinets also make it easier for you to redecorate in the future, since the re-facing process is simpler. This type of cabinet also allows the easy removal of cabinet doors to create a display-case type of shelving unit with no obstructing wood structure.

Differences between Framed and Frameless Kitchen Cabinets

Framed cabinets have the doors and drawer fronts installed as a partial overlay against the underlying structure. These cabinets are built with visible external hinges, and normally show a multi-layered surface. Frameless cabinets simply use the door or drawer front as their entire front surface, creating one continuous cabinet face with only seams to separate one box from another. This type of construction allows the easy removal or addition of shelves, since they can be slid in and out without any diagonal tilting required.

Visit a kitchen showroom that offers examples of both types of cabinets so you can see for yourself the reasons why frameless cabinets are becoming increasingly popular. With their sleek style and space-saving openness, frameless cabinetry is even winning the hearts of traditionalists.
