Kitchen Cabinet Designs: Frame Styles

- Jun 23, 2019-

Kitchen cabinet doors are available in an almost endless variety. In this article we are going to share something about kitchen cabinet door frame styles


Full Inset:Doors and drawers fit flush with the face frame. Because this technique requires patience and precision, it's a feature typically available only in custom cabinetry.


Full Overlay:Doors cover the face frame -- or the entire box front on frameless cabinets -- leaving only a sliver of space between doors and drawers. This creates a modern, clean look.


Partial Overlay:Doors cover the face frame by half an inch, and the frame shows all the way around the door. This traditional style is the easiest to construct and the most affordable option.
