WHAT IS FRAMELESS CABINETRY?
Frameless cabinet construction is a European way of manufacturing cabinets that has become popular among American homeowners seeking simple, more contemporary cabinet designs. Frameless cabinetry is sometimes called “full access” cabinetry because it offers greater accessibility by eliminating the face frame. Instead, it relies on thicker box construction for stability. Only full overlay doors can be used, with hinges attached directly to the sides of the cabinet box. Elias Construction custom cabinets are frameless to provide these advantages to our homeowners.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF FRAMELESS CABINETRY?
In frameless construction, cabinets do not have a face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box. After they have been installed, all you will see are the flat door and drawer fronts, providing a sleek, simple aesthetic that can work with many design themes throughout the home.
Frameless cabinets do not have a center stile coming down in the middle of the two cabinet doors, providing easier access to the items inside, as well as more storage space to work with. The shelves are typically adjustable. Drawers in frameless cabinetry also tend to be larger because of the space saved by not having a face frame attached to the front. These advantages highlight why we provide frameless cabinetry in our projects and why our clients are so pleased with them. If you’d like to see frameless cabinets in person you are welcome to make an appointment to see them in our showroom!
