When you’re remodeling your kitchen, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by how many options you have. Knowing the basics – especially when it comes to cabinets – is key to making the process effortless. Ron Webster, a designer at Schloegel Design Remodel, is here to walk you through the primary differences between cabinetry styles.
The Standard Overlay Cabinet is one of the most common and simple cabinet styles that you’ll find. It features a 1 1/2 inch face-frame all the way around the doors and drawers. The door size is a half-inch wider on both sides, leaving an inch reveal of the face-frame all the way around.
The Flush Inset Cabinet is one of the most popular cabinet styles right now. It features the same construction on the face-frame as the Full and Standard Overlays, but the door and drawer sit flush inside the face-frame. The reveal around the door and drawer is only 1/16th an inch.
The Beaded Inset Cabinet has the same face-frame as the Flush Inset Cabinet, however it has a routed bead around the door and drawer. The bead softens the look and rounds the edge of the door and drawer.
The Frameless Cabinet is a 3/4 inch side cabinet with a door that mounts to the side of the cabinet box. The look is very popular in Europe and Canada and is a great way to gain space in the width and height.
The Schloegel Design Remodel showroom features many great examples of these styles of cabinetry. Please call us at (816) 361-9669 and make an appointment to come by and learn more.
