American cabinet manufacturers have traditionally built kitchen cabinets using a framed construction. In this type of cabinet construction, the rails and stiles form a 1-1/2 inch face “frame” at the front of the cabinet box. This frame resembles a flat picture frame that is attached to the door front, giving added dimension to the door front. When you purchase kitchen cabinets online wholesale you can select pre-assembled or RTA kitchen cabinets. Ready to assemble cabinets ship within 2 business days, while pre-assembled kitchen cabinets ship within 4 to 6 days.
Frameless cabinet construction is a European way of manufacturing cabinets that has become popular among American homeowners seeking simple, more contemporary cabinet designs. Frameless cabinetry is sometimes called “full access” cabinetry because it offers greater accessibility by eliminating the face frame. Instead, it relies on thicker box construction for stability. Only full overlay doors can be used, with hinges attached directly to the sides of the cabinet box. When buying frameless kitchen cabinets online wholesale, you can choose to have them shipped as zero movement as ready to assemble or pre-assembled kitchen cabinets.
