Face Frame or Frameless Construction

Face Frame Construction

Cabinets with face frames are the most common method of building cabinetry in North America. First, the box is constructed and a face frame matching the box is built. The face frame is then attached to the front of the box. Cabinet doors are added to the face frame. The addition of the face frame adds strength to the cabinet. Installation is easier for face frame cabinets. The majority of clients with Gossling Woodworking choose face frame cabinetry.

Frameless Construction

Frameless cabinets are also known as European style cabinetry. Typically only cabinet boxes are built and cabinet doors are attached, virtually covering the entire box. When cabinets are hung and the doors are added, there is very little space between the cabinet doors. There are no face frames bordering the perimeter of the cabinets. Frameless cabinets lend themselves to a modern look, but can be used in a traditional setting. Gossling Woodworking does produce frameless cabinetry.
