Cabinets have infinite options and design possibilities and are the most expensive part of your new kitchen. Here are some definitions to help you out when talking with your cabinet builder.
Box. This is the base structure of your cabinets. It can vary greatly in both quality and finish and can be overlooked. Make sure to have a UV Cured finish inside to make cleaning spills easier.
Face Frames. Face frames attach to the front of boxes. The cabinet doors attach to these face frames. Frameless cabinets will have nothing more than edge banding (a thin veneer) on the front of your boxes.
Doors & Drawer Fronts. Covering all or most of the openings in your cabinetry, these are the main visible aspect of the cabinets.
Toe Kicks. The space under the cabinet that allows room for your toes as you stand at the cabinets. There are several different styles.
Hinges & Slides. The necessary hardware used to operate your doors and drawers. These can greatly affect the quality of your cabinets. Drawers that stick or eventually sag from low budget slides will cost you more in the end.
Knobs & Pulls. Door knobs and drawer pulls can be vastly important not only to the look of the cabinet but to their functionality. They may be an extra cost or included in the cabinet bid.
Finish. The coatings that protect your investment. Much like the paint on your car, finishes give style and protection. Stain, paint, and top coats should all be considered.
