If you’re interested in new cabinetry for your home, you may not know where to start because there are so many different styles and options. At Prince & Sons, we’re not only a local general contractor but we’re also a full-service cabinet dealer as well. This gives us access to a wide variety of cabinet styles and also allows us to provide you with necessary knowledge related to all things involved with cabinetry for your home.
One of the most common questions we get when working with a client on a remodeling project is, “what are my options for cabinetry”? The truth is that there’s an almost unlimited amount of choices when it comes to cabinetry, but the following are some of our most popular cabinetry styles that our clients have been extremely pleased with for all types of home renovation projects:
These cabinets are your most common type of cabinetry. They’re constructed with the face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box. This frame not only provides strength, but also a surface for the door to sit on which helps to keep contents from accidentally sliding out of the cabinet.
With framed cabinetry, the face frame is slightly visible behind the doors. Modern framed cabinet styles have adopted a full overlay door, which conceals as much of the frame as possible, but some of the frame is still visible. If you’re interested in no frame at all, frameless cabinetry is likely your best option.
Inset cabinetry is technically still in the same category as framed cabinetry, but provides a very different look. With the inset door style, the door hinges down into the face frame itself so that the door is able to sit flush with the face frame. This style of cabinetry is often seen in old furniture and provides a classic, yet custom look.
A high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is required for this type of cabinet to look perfect which is why you’ll only see this offered by higher end cabinet lines such as Plain & Fancy and Jim Bishop Cabinetry.
As mentioned above, this type of cabinetry is typically used when no frame behind the door is desired. This type of cabinetry is also sometimes referred to as Full Access or European style cabinets. This type of cabinet does not provide the same level of strength as framed cabinetry, but it does offer more storage space.
Frameless cabinetry is popular with designers and is typically offered from semi-custom or custom cabinet lines such as Jim Bishop Cabinetry.
