Framed cabinets provide a classic design that offers the character and craftsmanship of the traditional American style. The construction includes a 1-1/2” wide solid wood face frame. This face frame provides flexibility on how the selected door style is mounted to the cabinet. The doors and drawer heads can sit inside the frame, known as inset, or they can sit over the frame, known as overlay. The amount of overlay can vary from 1/2”, 1-1/4”, or 1-3/8”, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
