The cabinet box, or carcass, is virtually the skeleton of the cabinet. At Mr. Cabinet Care, we hand-make each cabinet box with high-quality Duracore™ plywood, which provides a strong foundation and is resistant to warping. Stiffness and strength are important factors in cabinet construction. The cabinet box is expected to maintain its shape over time and keep its supportive frame. One chief element that contributes to a cabinet’s strength is the thickness of the components.
At Mr. Cabinet Care, we do not cut corners with the quality of work we deliver and we commit ourselves to offering the best choice for strength. All of our cabinet boxes are manufactured with measurements that ensure the greatest longevity, durability, and strength. The inner box components are composed of 3/4″ thick Duracore™ plywood and our finished end panels are 1″ thick— providing one of the thickest, most durable end panel in the industry. We offer frame and frameless constructed cabinet boxes. Each option provides distinct benefits.
A face frame offers strength to the front of a cabinet and provides a nice visual design element. Before the introduction of modern engineering, framed cabinets were originally constructed using narrow strips of hardwood to frame the cabinet box. This process was time consuming and inefficient. With today’s technology, we can now create solid wood face frames along the entire front face of the cabinet.
At Mr. Cabinet Care, we offer custom-built framed cabinets. Using premium plywood, our Landmark cabinetry is built with a front face-frame around the cabinet opening to which the cabinet door is attached. The cabinet doors are attached directly on the face-frame itself.
With a modified overlay, doors and drawer fronts are oversized to show 1″ of the face frame on top and bottom and 1/4″ of the face frame on the sides.
With a traditional overlay, doors and drawer fronts overlay the face frame 1/2″ on each side of door and drawer opening leaving a 1″ reveal on all sides of the face frame.
Frameless cabinets maximize space more efficiently than face-frame cabinets because they are designed to accommodate interior components like pull-out drawers, spice racks, and trays. Inspired by European design, frameless cabinets are more streamline in construction and achieve a more modern style. At Mr. Cabinet Care, we offer Infinity cabinetry built without a face frame, to offer a more contemporary feel.
An important design element for the interior of cabinets includes organizing kitchen utensils and maximizing space. Whether your cabinets are framed or frameless in design, pull out drawers in lower cabinets allow for easier accessibility and provides relief from uncomfortable crouching to access kitchen supplies.
A benefit of frameless cabinet construction includes a better usage of space because drawer boxes can be sized to the interior opening, whereas frame cabinet construction requires more usage of interior space.
Cabinet technology and design have greatly improved since many homes in Southern California were originally built. New improvements include: pull-out drawers, tip out trays, double trash bin drawers, pull-out spice drawers, super susans, Blu motion technology, a mechanism which enables drawers to shut quietly, and more.
