Framed vs Frameless Cabinets

There are 2 broad types of cabinet construction: Face frame (also called traditional and framed) and frameless (also called european style or full access).

 Frameless cabinets

Framed Cabinet

A framed cabinet has a solid wood frame on the front, called a face frame.  The face frame is usually made of solid hardwood and of the same wood species as the cabinet doors. Each frame is composed of both vertical (“stiles”) and horizontal (“rails”) members.   The hinges for the doors and drawer glides for the drawers are attached to the face frame.

The existence of the face frame gives the cabinet extra strength. The face frame helps the cabinet to resist racking. Racking of the cabinet is the act of twisting or pulling the cabinet out of its normal square condition. Racking is usually caused by improper installation of the cabinets when the cabinet is screwed to an uneven wall or mounted on a sloping floor. Wall cabinets that are wider than 36″ also benefit from the existence of the face frame. Because the wall cabinet is suspended, the face frame gives the front of the cabinet extra strength to prevent sagging.

A framed cabinet can have several different ‘looks’. This is due to the many ways in which the doors can be hinged to the face frame. The doors can be mounted so that they are flush with the front of the face frame. This is an inset door. A door that is partially within the door opening is a ‘lipped’ door. Most framed cabinets produced today are overlay cabinets. This is an arrangement where the door and drawer front are completely over – or on top of – the face frame. The overlay can vary from a 1⁄2″ to a full overlay.  A 1⁄2″ overlay cabinet would have doors and drawer fronts that measure 1″ larger in height and width than the door or drawer opening. The 1″ would be split 1⁄2″ on each side and top & bottom. A full overlay door covers almost the entire front of the cabinet.  The face frame is still there, but you can’t see very much of it. These technical details give the different types of cabinets very different looks or styles.

Face Frame Frameless

Frameless Cabinetry also known as European or accessible design where no box is seen. The door or drawer front sits over the box [usually ¾” or 5/8”] and is flush with the frame of the box. There is approximately 1/8 of an inch of space between the doors and drawer fronts, both horizontally and vertically.  This maximizes the interior storage space of each cabinet. Frameless box construction does not mean less quality. Most frameless cabinetry has thicker sides than comparable traditional cabinetry. Full access cabinetry increases your available storage by 15% or more with wider drawers, wider cabinet openings and higher top to bottom interior dimensions. Frameless cabinetry also has the added benefit of having a flush bottom allowing for a more finished look and cleaner installation of under cabinetry lighting.  Frameless cabinetry is generally recommended in all applications where the client does not want to see the cabinet box.
