Kitchen Appliances: 6 Tips Before You Buy
The Beauty of Cambria Countertops
While there are three main categories of kitchen design: contemporary, traditional and transitional, there are only two types of cabinet construction: framed or frameless. Framed cabinetry has been the primary standard here in the United States for many years. Framed cabinets work great in traditional and transitional kitchens. Frameless cabinetry has been much more popular in Europe; however, more and more Americans are opting for frameless cabinets.
Framed vs. Frameless
Framed cabinets are what most people envision when they think of cabinets in America. There is framing attached to the front of the cabinet boxes and also a center stile to cover the space between where two doors would meet. Doors and drawers are attached to the framing. This type of cabinetry is durable and has a large range of options.
Frameless cabinets have been popular in Europe for many years but are relatively new to Americans. Frameless cabinets don’t have the framing on the front of the cabinet box or the center stile. Instead, the cabinet doors and drawers attach directly to the cabinet box and meet exactly in the middle with no space between where the two doors meet.
Benefits of Frameless
Our new line of Aspire Cabinetry by Wellborn is a line of frameless cabinetry. We’re excited to have this sleek and modern option available. It happens to have a set of great benefits, as well:
- Contemporary Style – Frameless cabinets such as the Aspire line create a seamless look that is modern and sleek. Perfect for contemporary and more modern kitchens.
- More Storage – With the frame and center stile removed, frameless cabinets offer more storage inside without having to maneuver large or odd-shaped items around to get them to fit. The drawers in frameless cabinets are also larger and provide more storage space.
- Faster Construction – Frameless cabinets are faster to build and installation is also quicker and easier.
Frameless cabinets are a hot option for today’s kitchen designs. We’re thrilled to offer the beautiful and versatile Aspire Cabinetry by Wellborn.
