Design Dictionary: Cabinet Construction

January 17, 2018


During the earliest stages of your remodel project, construction terms can seem like another language. Because, in part, it is! To give you a head start, we've devised our very own dictionary of sorts to keep you on the same page as the pro's your dealing with. 


                                                       Lets begin with:
Face Frame: A frame resembling a picture frame that is built onto the front of a cabinet to provide a fixing point for doors and drawers.




Wood Framed: 3 Categories


1. Full Overlay

Our Watral Project


American cabinet manufacturers have traditionally built cabinets using a framed construction. With this cabinet construction, the cabinet doors are secured to a face frame, which gives the cabinet strength and sturdiness. Full overlay is typically used for a more traditional look.

2. Flush Inset 

Our North Sea Road Project


Offering clean lines, inset cabinetry features doors and drawers that fit inside of the cabinet face frame openings. This type of cabinet construction gives a full view of the cabinet frame, with only minimal spacing or gaps between the cabinet components. This construction also allows for decorative exterior hinges, as seen in the above photo.

3. Beaded Inset


With inset cabinets, you can personalize the design with beaded inserts to create your own look and complement your home’s style. The beaded inset construction is fitted into the cabinet door itself, providing an edge detail that evokes fine craftsmanship.

Our Classic Hamptons Project


Gaining traction over in Europe and starting to break ground here; frameless cabinets are a popular choice for transitional or modern designs. Frameless offers greater accessibility by eliminating the face frame of a cabinet, instead placing hinges attached directly to the interior sides of the cabinet box. This creates more room inside the cabinet. Also, without a face frame the space between doors and drawers decrease making for 'clean lines'
