  1. Cabinet construction

Cabinet construction refers to the cabinet box which can be either framed or frameless. Framed cabinets are usually seen in traditional designs. They are attached in front to give the cabinet box extra strength. Frameless cabinets are more common in contemporary and modern designs for increased storage space. They are more sleek and minimalist.

  1. Cabinet types

Cabinets come in three types depending on how the door and drawer sit in the cabinet frame. The partial overlay is the standard with the door partially covering the cabinet frame. It is budget-friendly and mostly used in traditional designs. The full overlay is a great choice for modern kitchens. Inset cabinetry is the most expensive type that involves a high level of craftsmanship.
