What is the difference between framed and frameless construction?

Framed cabinets have a face frame where the doors are considered inset, standard overlay, or full overlay. Inset doors are flush with frame of the cabinet. Standard doors overlay the frame, leaving up to 1 1/2” reveal compared to the 1/8” to1/4” reveal with full overlay doors. Framed cabinets tend to look more traditional. Frameless cabinetry constructed without the face frame allows full, easier access to the interior of the cabinet. About 90% of consumers today choose frameless cabinetry. While frameless cabinetry used to be considered contemporary it now is seen as clean and elegant when paired with a traditional door style or finish.
