We design both semi-custom and full custom construction inset cabinetry and frameless cabinetry.

We offer these cabinet design choices to our customers to offer the most flexibility and to maximize use of space and functionality of design.


Client Photos 010What are Inset Cabinets?

The cabinet door is inset into the frame so the frame and the door appear to be flush. This type of cabinetry can have concealed or barrel hinges, which are shown in the photo to the left.

Despite the clean elegant lines and high-end look that inset gives, not many designers even know how to design inset, and not many cabinet manufacturers will build inset.

This is what sets SJL Design apart. We have extensive experience designing kitchens with inset cabinets, and our custom cabinet manufacturer specializes in inset cabinets.


What are Frameless Cabinets?

Frameless cabinets are built so you cant see the frame or hinge when the doors are closed.  The cabinet door covers the cabinet box frame, and the hinges are inside allowing the doors to fully swing open.


If you need help choosing between these, want to see samples, or want to know more about the different types of cabinetry or services we offer, please email us at
