The Basics of Frameless Cabinets

If you're thinking about sprucing up your home with new kitchen cabinet doors, you might want to consider frameless cabinets. The Youtube video "Building a Frameless Upper Cabinet - - Step-by-Step Instruction" shows how you can make this yourself without much hassle or the need to spend hundreds of dollars.

The rest are simply variations of those two types. If you go for face-frame options, you'll see bigger reveals, while frameless cabinets have thinner reveals that might be better for what you want. Most frameless options have some kind of overlay or inset. In the latter case, there's no overlay because the door is even with the rest of the cabinet. Now, you need to know the pieces you're going to need to build frameless kitchen cabinet doors. You'll need the two side panels, the top and bottom panels, an adjustable shelf, a few nailers, and finally, the material for the back panel and the one for the door. Remember that this is for an upper cabinet, which can usually measure from 30 to 42 inches as a single standalone full piece.
