Will I regret reduced storage in framed cabinets?
Having followed GW for months, thought obsessively about every detail of my full remodel, having a complete design and appliances ordered, I suddenly realized that the cabinets my GC uses (Wellborn) are framed, not frameless. I'm very anxious that I'm making a bad decision because of the loss of storage space with the frame. I'll have three 30" lower cabinets with 3 drawers each. I'm less concerned about the uppers and cabinets with doors because I don't think so much space is lost.
I've lived with frameless for over 30 years and it never dawned on me that I would lose drawer space with the Wellborn cabinets. I like my GC and his craftsmen are excellent. They did both of my bathrooms and I was entirely satisfied. Also, I've given him a sizeable deposit.
He's willing to go with one other cabinet company that he has used in the far past (Adelphi) but I don't like what I see on that website.
I love the solid wood door that I picked from Wellborn and the wood stain is exactly the look I want. I'll have a pretty large pantry, so this might not be such a big deal. However, I'm worried that I'll kick myself for making such a big investment and not getting this detail right. BTW, my style is contemporary, so the cabinet doors will be slab, full overlay.
Any advice greatly appreciated, and thanks for sticking with this long post.
