Framed and Frameless

Wellsford offers both traditional framed cabinetry and frameless or full-access cabinetry. The decision on which cabinet construction to use depends on aesthetics and space, but not on build quality. We take pride in our cabinet construction and took great care during our initial engineering to make sure that our cabinetry will live up to our lifetime warranty.

Build quality can be seen in the details. We use wood glue, clamps, and wood joinery to construct our cabinets. Fasteners are used to hold items in place until the glue dries, not as a means of integrating the parts. We never use hot melt glue or plastic corner blocks. Both cabinet construction types have ½” captive backs so you can be sure that it will be securely anchored to the wall. Our framed line has the floors inset into the cabinet sides, as well as the face frame. But we didn’t stop there. We add additional support under the floor so it will withstand abuse. Our frameless line uses wood doweled construction with a dowel every 5” on average. You’re about to make a sizeable investment to your home and we wanted to make sure that your new cabinetry’s construction reflects your investment.

These details are often not discussed because they are not as exciting as selecting a door style, or finish color. However, they are vital to knowing that your cabinetry investment is being made towards a product that will enhance your home and not become a maintenance issue in the coming years.
