What are the in-frame door differences?

 

So, you’ve looked through all the door styles and you have decided you quite like the look of the inframe door styles. The following article will show you the differences between the door styles and explain what an inframe door actually is.

What is an inframe door?

A standard kitchen door range in technical terms can be described as a lay-on kitchen door. Another style of kitchen is Inframe or Face Frame, this is where a frame is attached to the front of a kitchen cabinet to hide the front edges of it.

The doors and drawer fronts then sit and open within the frames and the kitchen cabinets are fitted with special hinges and drawer fronts to suit.

Inframe is a feature of traditional cabinetry that has become extremely popular again in recent years. At DIY Kitchens we offer 2 different styles of inframe kitchen doors. We do offer our exclusive Innova Harewood style in 11 standard finishes & also bespoke painted to any colour of your choice.

Please note: Inframe units are constructed a little differently but all our inframe kitchen ranges do have soft close fitted as standard on the mechanisms.

What material are inframe doors made from?

All our styles of inframe doors are made from Oak or solid timber. These door styles with their differences are shown below.

    Hi

    Would it ever be possible to mix inframe cupboard doors, with frameless drawers?

    I love the look of the Helmsley but don’t like the idea of losing so much drawer space, so was considering the Norton drawers.

    Thanks

      Hi, it’s not possible to mix styles in the same unit. You could use different units together, but inframe and shaker doors do look a lot different, because of the frame and they may not look that great, side by side.

    Hi, I cannot for the life of me see the difference between your Ayton and Tockwith doors. The descriptions are identical and any visual differences are very difficult to see from the pictures provided. Can you help?

      Hi Richard, here is an Ayton Kitchen. The differences are in the centre panel. The centre panel on the Ayton door is a little more ornate. Ayton Kitchen

      Here is a Tockwith kitchen
