1. Beaded Inset Vs. Plain Inset :
Fully Custom Made For You. ~ Kitchens, Baths & Built-in Cabinetry
The Cabinet Opening has a decorative bead on it. It is NOT part of the door, it is part of the cabinet.
The Cabinet Opening is plain and simple. In both cases, the door is made to fit perfectly inside the opening of the cabinet.
2. What are Face Frames vs. European Frameless?
A. Face Frames
A 1-1/4" wide structural "Face" is added to the front of the cabinet box. It is commonly used with the Inset Style design and also adds structure to the cabinet. (We use 1" face frames for Full Overlay Style.)
B. European Frameless
3/4" plywood box construction with a painted or veneer front edge - no face frame. Commonly used for a Full Overlay design but we choose to use a small face frame for our Full Overlay Cabinets.
A. Face Frames with Inset Doors
Doors sit flush inside the cabinet opening. It's a traditional style and the craftsmanship is appreciated by the people who choose this style.
B. European Frameless - Full Overlay Look
Doors cover the whole front of the cabinet, giving a modern and clean line look. You do not see the cabinet between the doors.
3. Face Frames with Inset. European Frameless Full Overlay.
* Note: We actually Prefer Not to build European Frameless. We achieve that same look using
1" Face Frame Construction.
