What is an in-frame kitchen?

What is an in-frame kitchen?

When a kitchen door is inset within a frame that is fitted to the front of a kitchen carcass, this is called ‘in-frame.’ The structure means that the door is smaller than usual as it will open within the wooden frame. However, this can offer visual and practical benefits. In-frame doors create an elegant, timeless feature, taking inspiration from traditional cabinet construction and presenting quality, strength and long-term durability. In recent years, trends have meant that customers are choosing to search for kitchens with improved durability and longevity, investing in high quality kitchens that will stand the test of time, rather than spend less and replace the furniture at an earlier date. This means that in-frame kitchens, with a reputation for fine craftsmanship and detail, have become more prominent than ever in the market.



The simple, elegant style of in-frame looks beautiful no matter the design of your kitchen. As the doors are made to fit perfectly into their frame, it’s easy to see the attention to detail and the excellent craftsmanship that has gone into their creation, meaning your space will ooze luxury and have a truly bespoke feel.
