A framed kitchen can add an abundance of sophistication to your home, creating that long-lasting timeless design that we all want. We know well how exciting designing your forever kitchen can be, however it can be difficult and overwhelming when it comes to making the final decisions. In this blog you can find some of our top tips for designing your framed kitchen, with some inspiration along the way.


What Are Framed Kitchens?

Framed kitchens are a very popular style of kitchen, mostly because of their unique look, but what actually are they? 

A framed kitchen, also known as an ‘in-frame’ kitchen uses framed cabinets and draws to create a traditional yet timeless look. They have an additional border surrounding them to add extra detail, similar to a shaker style kitchen. This unique design is considered to be a visual feature, making it more appealing whilst also increasing overall durability.

The kitchen seen below showcases contrasting shades of grey to give the in-frame cabinets and drawers a modern touch. Here at Katie Brown Kitchens we know that everyone has different styles, and that’s why we offer a variety of framed kitchens to suit all needs.
