Charles’ Cabinets, Inc. prides itself in providing the highest quality custom cabinetry in the business. We use face frame construction methods in manufacturing most of our work. Not frameless! Read up on what exactly this is, and what it means for your next custom project!
A face frame in cabinet making is the frame fixed to the front of a cabinet carcass which obscures the edges of the carcass and provides the fixing point for doors and other external hardware. A face frame provides strength to the front of a cabinet and is also considered a visual feature of particular styles of furniture.
Face frames are a feature of traditional cabinetry which have been replaced in many instances today by frameless cabinets which make use of edge banding to conceal the edge of the carcass. This is most commonly seen in European modular-style kitchens. (*Wikipedia)
