Framed Cabinetry

The most popular cabinet style in North America, and is often referred to as standard cabinets.

Framed Cabinets

American cabinet manufacturers have traditionally built cabinets using a framed construction. The framed cabinetry is the most popular cabinet style in North America, and is often referred to as standard cabinets.

In face frame cabinetry, a 1.5-inch to 2-inch border or frame is constructed to hide the edge of the cabinet box.

A face frame ensures squareness of the cabinet front. It also increases rigidity and provides a mounting point for hinges. Face-frames give an appearance of strength and durability, and face-frame cabinets retain their appeal in the U.S.

Standard Overlay or Full Overlay

With framed cabinetry you have two different overlay styles to select from: Standard Overlay or Full Overlay.

Standard Overlay style covers only part of the frame leaving 1” of the face frames exposed.
Full Overlay style provides a seamless appearance by having the door and drawer front cover the entire face frame leaving only ¼” of the face frame exposed.
