Making Sense of Kitchen Cabinet Terms – Understanding Cabinetry Differences

Remodeling your kitchen is a daunting task on its own, but add to it a whole new language filled with construction and cabinet terminology that you’re not familiar with and you may feel even more overwhelmed.
Last week we shared with you the differences in cabinetry door styles, and this week we want to educate you on some common cabinetry terms, making that conversation with your contractor and/or cabinet associate just a little bit easier to follow.
Framed vs Frameless:
Full Overlay vs Traditional Overlay:
is the amount of the front frame covered by the door and drawer.
The reveal
is the area of that front cabinet frame that is exposed, can be seen.
Wood Grain vs Wood Species:
Hopefully these few basic cabinetry terms will help you make sense of the differences in cabinets as you discuss plans with remodelers and read descriptions online or in display stores!
