The Elements of Quality Cabinet Construction
Styles, colors and finishes change over time but quality cabinet construction lasts a lifetime. Here are some elements of quality cabinet construction.
Framed or Frameless
You’ll hear talk about framed or frameless construction. Framed construction starts with a wood-frame on the front edge of the cabinet. The cabinet box or carcass is fastened to this front edge. This makes for a very rigid cabinet.
Frameless construction, often called European style provides more interior space. It’s because the door and drawers attach directly to the cabinet
box. This makes for a slightly less rigid cabinet but is still very effective.
Do you want a European look with framed construction? We can accomplish that by using full overlay doors to give you access to the interior
with the strength of framed construction.
Details of Quality Cabinets
Cabinets that feature real wood are the ideal. Veneer covered plywood is considered a better level of cabinet. Cabinets using furniture quality
particleboard covered with a stain resistant melamine are considered good quality.
Look for a cabinet box built with either 5/8” or 3/4” thick wood, plywood or furniture grade particleboard covered with stain resistant melamine.
Avoid exposed particleboard at all costs.
Look for adjustable shelves that are at least 5/8” thick and hardware that is sturdy. Generally, door hinges are adjustable to allow the
installer to square and level the doors on the frame or within the frame.
Dovetail joinery is the best method for joining corners together. Look for this feature in the construction of your cabinet drawers. Stay
away from stapled particleboard corners, as they are a disaster waiting to happen.
Side-mounted drawer slides tend to be a little stronger than slides centered underneath the drawer. Yet, centered slides are becoming more popular
and compete well with side-mounted slides for strength. Be sure slide stops are solid and look for nylon bearings because they are quieter.
