Inset Cabinets
Residential Technology, Inc.

Inset cabinets incorporate a face-frame which wraps around the doors and drawer fronts, that is they are flush with each other. There is a small gap, typically one-eighth of an inch, between the edges of the doors and drawer fronts and the face-frame.

Inset style cabinetry requires a much higher degree of craftsmanship and precision than the partial or full-overlay styles. It is therefore more expensive, but offers the look and quality of older cabinet and furniture styles.

The inset style is not as elaborate or expensive as the inset-bead style, which incorporates bead molding between the frace-frame and door and drawer edges.
