 Inset cabinets need special attention.
Inset cabinetry is a style of cabinetry where the door is “set into” the face frame, instead of overlaying the face frame.
• Inset cabinetry should be manufactured with tight tolerances between each door and the face frame, and between each drawer and the face frame. Large gaps are unattractive.
• Because of these tight tolerances:
1. If inset cabinets are not installed properly, doors and drawers may
appear warped even when they are not.
2. You will need to adjust the doors and drawers each season as the
temperatures change.
• Every homeowner should expect their walls and floors to have
variations; a well-qualified installer can properly shim inset cabinetry so
it does not become out of square.
• Ask about the standard depth of an inset cabinet. Most times, an
inset wall cabinet will not accommodate oversized plates or oversized dinnerware. If you want to store oversized plates and dinnerware in an inset wall cabinet, the depth of the cabinet will need to be modified, and you’ll want to know the charge for that. Brookwood Cabinetry offers an increased depth up to 15" at no charge on inset wall cabinetry.

Brookwood Cabinetry takes great care to create square, true inset cabinets.
1. Support runners are 1⁄2" thick hardwood plywood veneer core that connect the face frame, end panels and cabinet back on base cabinets.
2. Horizontal supports are 1⁄2" thick hardwood plywood veneer core that provide extra support on base cabinets.
3. Face frames are 3⁄4" thick select solid hardwood. Rails and stiles are joined with concealed screws and glue. Rails and stiles are dadoed to receive end panels, tops and bottoms.
