There are LOTS of styles of cabinets. Beautiful cabinetry but it kinda boils down to these two.
Now there are tons of variations of these two.
That refers to the thin beading surrounding the opening.Who knew?
See. No beading or trim around the opening.
Let's look at some kitchens to illustrate.
This beautiful kitchen features beaded inset cabinets.
You can really see the detailing in this close up
Another beaded inset kitchen. This one much more formal but just as lovely.
Note the construction detail.
Look at this built in utilizing inset cabinetry.
Now the overlay cabinets have many variations just like the inset.
The doors can have lots of detailing or can be fairly simple.
The commonality is that the doors lay over the cabinet opening rather than being set in the opening.
Let"s look at some kitchens featuring this style of cabinets.
This fabulous kitchen features overlay cabinets on the perimeter and inset on the island.
Look at the distressed finish on this island! AbFab!
Here's another kitchen featuring overlay doors.
This traditional kitchen has beautiful detailing on the crisp white cabinets.
What style cabinets do you prefer? The inset or the overlay? The inset is a bit pricier as you can well imagine the work that goes into making them. I do like the kitchens that incorporate both styles.Like this kitchen desk area.
That way you can put the inset doors on a feature cabinet or area like the island. Certainly something to ponder. Hmmm.
