What are Inframe Kitchens?
Whenever you think of remodelling your kitchen, you might have encountered the term “inframe kitchen”. When we place the kitchen doors inside a visible frame within a cabinet like we place a traditional piece of furniture, this type of design is known as inframe kitchens.
Do I need Inframe Kitchens?
It depends on the type of design you choose for your kitchen and the period you want this design to last. The development in high-pressure laminate technology pushed us to mass-produce kitchen units in the 1920s by reducing the use of frames and fixing the door directly into the frame, reducing the total cost of making the door significantly for the manufacturers. Moreover, with this technique, the kitchen started to look more modern with sleek-slab front units that we commonly see in today’s kitchens.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Inframe Kitchens
Like everything, Inframe kitchens also have pros and cons. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of having an inframe kitchen so that you decide better before choosing a specific design for you:
