FRAMELESS also known as "European" or "Euro" style, is constructed without a face frame. This style maintains a small 1/8" gap between all doors and drawers, virtually covering the cabinet box and giving the Frameless style a clean, contemporary look. Knobs are required for base cabinets and are optional for upper cabinets.
INSET describes how the doors and drawers fit inside and flush with the face frame of the cabinet, allowing you to see the full width of the frame. Pulls or knobs are required with this construction.
BEADED INSET is a variation of INSET which includes a beaded detail on the frame surrounding each door and drawer. Pulls or knobs are required with this construction.
HALF-INCH OVERLAY is the most common and economical construction type. The doors are mounted outside the face frames and overlay the frame by ½” on all four sides. There is space left between the doors and drawers to allow for a natural finger pull on the doors and drawers. Pulls or handles are optional with this construction.
FULL OVERLAY utilizes a similar construction method as the 1/2" Overlay, but maintains a smaller 1/4" gap between the doors and drawers. Pulls or handles are required with this construction.
