Many of the modular or pre-fabricated cabinets offer only specific cabinet packages, many times including cabinet components that you don’t want or need.
With custom cabinets at Eischen Cabinet Company, you can mix and match cabinet components, choosing the ones that are important to you. Have your custom cabinets constructed the way you want them.
At ECC, we construct only custom cabinets. Our cabinets are not mass produced, and each cabinet is site measured and constructed for your specific space. No filler or double face frames required as is frequently the case with off-the-shelf modular cabinets found at many big box stores!
TYPES OF CUSTOM CABINET CONSTRUCTION
There are three (3) main types of cabinet construction. They are a Traditional ½” overlay, Full Overlay and Full Inset.
The differences between these three types of cabinets construction is all in how the doors and drawer fronts are positioned in relation to the face frame(s) of the cabinets.
HALF INCH OVERLAY
Full Inset cabinet construction is unique in that the face of the doors / fronts is flush to the face frames of the cabinets. With this type of cabinet construction you will see the full width (and height) of the face frame(s), with the doors / fronts positioned with in.
This cabinet construction is sometimes referred to as European Construction or Frameless Construction. Whatever you want to call it, the end result is the same. With this type of cabinet construction the doors / fronts are much closer together than with the Traditional ½” overlay, leaving (1/4”+/-) of space between each of the doors / fronts. As a whole, very little of the face frame is visible showing mainly the doors and fronts. As with the Traditional ½” overlay construction the doors / fronts are positioned in front of the face frames of the cabinets.
