Did you know that frameless cabinets can accept a wide variety of replacement kitchen cabinet doors? In fact, this is a common reason for someone to select this type of cabinetry in the first place. Just consider how difficult it can be to update the average kitchen. Often someone will have to spend a lot of time and money on the laminate or veneers necessary to cover the exterior of the cupboards, and then face the challenges of mounting the new kitchen cabinet doors in a way that displays the reveal (the space which appears between the cabinets) properly.
If, on the other hand, the original cabinetry is frameless (or European) the cabinet doors are much easier to measure and install, and there is not a lot of difficulty with the installation of the matching veneers because there is usually only a very slim area requiring such treatment around the outer edges of the boxes.
Additionally, if your original cabinetry is the frameless type, you can easily convert your boring or outdated kitchen into one that has a very distinctly “high end” appearance as well. This is because many top quality suppliers of kitchen cabinet doors offer them in all-natural wood veneers that include many exotic or rare woods as well.
For instance, you might outfit your plain white oak kitchen cabinets with remarkably unique Zebrawood doors and veneers. You could also create an Arts and Crafts-style kitchen by choosing a Walnut finish too. When you add appropriate pulls and handles, you will see that a complete transformation has taken place, and all with a very minimal amount of actual effort.
Be sure, however, that you are not buying any laminates or imitation finishes. These cannot stand up to the sort of usage that occurs in the kitchen, and may end up being a waste of time and money.
