Comparing Framed and Frameless Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets are an essential part of your kitchen. It’s important for storage and organizing supplies, and adds an accent to your kitchen aesthetic. If you’re thinking of changing your kitchen cabinets, should you go with framed or frameless cabinets? 

Comparing Framed and Frameless Kitchen Cabinets

Framed Kitchen Cabinets

Framed kitchen cabinets are more common in American homes. There are a lot of advantages when you decide on framed cabinets. The construction of framed cabinets is more sturdy and durable. The frame acts as additional support, and it allows for easier installation and flexibility. Framed cabinets have more options in sizes and are easily customizable.

A common disadvantage of framed cabinets is that their frames could sometimes become an obstruction when opening the door. They also cost more to install and maintain compared to frameless cabinets. However, you can think of it as an investment as framed cabinets last longer than you expect. For cabinet renewal and installation, make sure to hire a trusted kitchen cabinet contractor.

Frameless Kitchen Cabinets

If you are more interested in contemporary cabinet design, you can check out frameless cabinets. Frameless cabinets leave you with a sleeker, cleaner and more modern look. They are also called “full access” cabinets because, without the face frame, the space of the cabinet box is maximized.

However, without the frame, the cabinets are usually made with a thicker box for strength and stability. They also do not have a stile or a vertical partition, making it difficult to store larger dishes or objects inside the cabinet. But without the vertical stile, the risk of damage to dishes can also be reduced.
