There are different door styles available within the in-frame kitchen design, but the principal idea of having a solid frame wrapped around each door or drawer front remains the same.
If you compare an in-frame kitchen to a non in-frame kitchen you will notice that the doors on a non in-frame kitchen sit directly on the front of the unit. The doors in an in-frame kitchen sit flush into the full solid frame. In frame kitchens tend to be stronger than alternatives but are more expensive for the manufacturer to make which is reflected in the retail price.
