It is difficult to replicate the beauty and harmony you see in a home with well built flush inset cabinetry. It's equally difficult to discern whether it's the clean, consistent lines between the drawers, doors and the surrounding frame, or the simple yet ingenious concept of having the moving portions of the cabinet face inset into their background that grabs your attention the most. You instantly sense the long hours of planning and careful building that went into the piece of art before you.
Although this style tends to be one of the most expensive on the market, it's a classic look that will last for generations. The inset door gets its name because it is set inside of the cabinet frame – typical cabinet doors rest on the outside of the frame. The door is designed and constructed with extremely precise measurements so that it nests inside the frame and opens and closes properly, even when the wood expands and contracts.
