Solid, slab drawer fronts on the top drawers with five-piece drawer fronts below is a look that has been around for a while. Years ago drawer fronts on kitchen cabinetry were most often a slab drawer of some type – either wood or metal. As design preferences and manufacturing processes evolved, decorative five-piece drawer fronts gained in popularity.
Working with Drawer Rails and Stiles
With today’s popular transitional styling, wider rails and stiles on doors and drawer fronts are common. This decreases the space in the center panel of a top drawer and can make finding the right knob or pull a challenge. Often times the width of the rails on the top drawer front are modified to match the proportions of the door style.
Using Flat Slab Drawer Fronts As the Top Drawer
Most of Dura Supreme’s full overlay door styles are available with a standard, coordinating five-piece drawer front or an optional solid slab drawer front. Specifying the optional solid slab drawer fronts for the top drawers provides a uniform look across the top of the base cabinets while keeping the design detail of the larger drawer fronts below. This gives the flexibility to personalize the style of the cabinetry at an additional level.
