Cabinets are one of the most important elements in a kitchen or bathroom. They often take up most of the wall, provide storage space, and help define a room’s aesthetic. There are countless styles and options of cabinetry to choose from, but deciding between the two main cabinet constructions—faceless and face frame—is a solid first step.
What is a frameless cabinet?

Frameless cabinets have a sleek modern look and provide more interior space—no frame overlay or center stile divides the cabinet.
