Cabinet Frames: Frameless and Face Frame

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

There are two types of cabinet construction: face frame and frameless (also called European-style).

Face frame cabinets, as their name implies, have a frame around the front of the cabinet. Frameless cabinets don’t. You can usually tell the difference between the two types of cabinet construction by the way the doors and drawers fit against the front. Bathroom cabinets are made using these same techniques.

Another difference between the two styles is that, because the face frame adds rigidity to the construction, face-frame cabinets usually don’t have a top panel or a full back (or the back may be made of quite thin material). Also, frameless base cabinets are usually mounted on top of a separate plinth or toekick; face frame cabinets have integral bases.

A face-frame cabinet has a 1 by 2 frame that rims the cabinet’s front edges, masking the construction and strengthening the box. Doors or drawer fronts normally overlay the frame but they may be flush or offset. Standard offset hinges are partially visible from the front.

The frameless cabinet utilizes European-style connectors and hinges to create a contemporary look with flush doors and hidden hinges. This method of construction is often used with laminate cabinets. Frameless cabinets usually have a solid top and back and base units sit on a separate plinth.

Kitchen Storage Tips

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Providing convenient and suitable storage for small, large and variously-shaped kitchen tools and equipment is one of the most important aspects of kitchen planning.

Whether you choose to have enclosed cupboards, or open shelves , the important thing is that everything should be easily seen, accessible and in the most convenient place.

Shelving

Open shelving

is cheap and easy to install, and suits people who like the look of their kitchen equipment and use it often. Shelves can be fitted where cupboards cannot, (for example, in front of windows, on the backs of cupboard doors, under sloping ceilings and in small recesses). An up-and-over shelf can also be fitted so that a heavy piece of equipment, such as a food processor, can sit in a cupboard and swing out, when required. Shelves can also be of different depths. Wider shelves are good for large plates, jugs and bowls, but it is useful to have some narrow shelves. One narrow shelf, running along the wall about 12 inches above the worktop and above any electric sockets, is indispensable for jars of herbs and spices and any other small items, which would get lost on deep shelves.

Cupboards

Enclosed cupboards can be very dominant in a kitchen and will usually set the style for the whole room. You can choose the simplest wooden, Shaker-style design and paint it, or you can have an elaborate, molded wooden kitchen in a dark stain and in between these, there are many variations of wooden, veneered or plastic-finished kitchens to choose from. If you plan carefully, you should not have to cover every wall with cupboards. It is often more pleasant to have some open wall space to hang a picture on, or to act as your home office. Having too many cupboards simply means you can shove things into them, which you don’t need and never even glance at. For a narrow kitchen where cupboard doors may open straight into your face, you can get cupboards with sliding doors, but these can be irritating to use and small things can often get hidden behind them.

Plan the interiors of cupboards carefully. A narrower shelf fitted inside a cupboard will mean that you have room to hang a set of shelves on the back of the cupboard door, which can be a more convenient way of storing small items. Low cupboards are easier to use if the shelves pull out on runners, so you can see what’s on them. Wire basket shelves will prevent things from rolling off. If the kitchen is next to the eating area, equipment for eating and table laying can be kept in a double-sided peninsula unit, to make more efficient use of the area.

Drawers

Drawers are among the most useful forms of storage. They can be any depth and size: shallow for linen, table mats and cutlery, square for dry foods and smaller items such as string and labels, and deep for upright bottles, saucepans, a basket or waste bin.

You can buy standard drawers and design the interior for a specific purpose (for example, fill them with wire baskets for vegetable storage, bottles and jars or laundry). Very narrow drawers, fitted with wire shelves, are available as part of some ranges of kitchen units, which can store nearly all your tins and dry foods in a very compact space. Such units can be short in height to fit next to an under-the-worktop refrigerator, or tall to fit next to a large refrigerator-freezer or indeed into any spare, narrow space in the kitchen.

Remodeling kitchen design

Remodeling kitchen design

Before you start thinking about remodeling your kitchen, you should have some general thoughts. If you are not happy with the color or look of your doors and countertop, but the appliances are still in good conditions, than refacing is the right way to think about. In case you do not like the way your kitchen is designed and where drawers and doors are located, you might better look for a entirely new america’s test kitchen.

Areas where remodeling can be done

First and most visible part of any kitchen are cabinets with doors and drawers. By exchanging them with new once, the look of any kitchen will change often dramatically. Whilst often the visible outside parts of the cabinets get refinished, the biggest part concerns kitchen doors and drawer fronts. Generally there are two kinds of doors available: framed and panel type doors. Whilst framed doors give a kitchen a more traditional look, panel style doors will make them look more modern. As the drawer fronts are also exchanged, make sure that all drawer guides are checked and exchanged if needed as well.

From a visibility point of view, the second most important part of any kitchen remodeling is the worktop or kitchen top. Here you can choose for a huge variety of materials and colors. The range goes from marble or granite to KBC® corian and laminate boards. Available in nearly every type of color and pattern, it is the perfect way to change the look of an entire kitchen.
