Frameless cabinets offer a sleeker, modern look that’s popular in Europe. This box construction provides full access to the cabinet interior and larger drawer box capacity. Cabinet sides are ordered finished at the factory. More fillers are recommended in the design to ensure minimum clearance is met for door and drawer openings. There are generally less options in sizes and modifications due to the limitations of the construction.

Frameless cabinets are quick and easy to manufacture and do not require special screws. Compared with the appearance of frameless cabinets and framed cabinets, frameless cabinets have a European and modern appearance. Very suitable for modern home design.
