Face Frame Cabinets

These cabinets incorporate a solid wood frame that is attached to the front edges of the cabinet cases.  Hinges mount to this face frame and there is usually a wide gap between cabinet doors and drawer fronts which makes the face frame a visible part of the cabinet bank.  The amount of overlay will vary depending on hinge & plate pairing used.

Face Frame Full Overlay Hinge & Plate Pairings

Full Overlay Information

Using a full overlay hinge and plate pairing on a face frame cabinet will cover up to 3/4″ of the face frame, and give the cabinets a more streamlined “Euro” box look.  Using full overlay hinges on a face frame cabinet will typically yield a 1/4″ ~ 3/8″ gap between cabinet doors.
