Frameless Cabinets will have the doors meeting the other door and will have drawers against other drawers. Looking at the front of the cabinet, you will see only the door or the drawer not the cabinet box itself. 10 x 10 Standard is just that a standard measure meaning 10 foot of base cabinets and 10 foot of wall cabinets. Manufacturers have used this calculation for their standard kitchen cabinets. You can still change this to meet your footage requirements but they will be a special order instead of than the standard measurements.
Whenever you need to make a major purchase if you are budget-conscious -- by choice or by necessity, the best (I would say, only) place to start is by accumulating as much information as you can about the available possibilities. When buying cabinets, an extremely important consideration is to be sure that the measurements you are working with of the involved area(s) are accurate. You certainly do not want to learn too late that your cabinet choices and/or the resulting layout of them might have better met your needs.
Typically, stocked cabinets are offered in extremely limited sizes, and while most cabinets are offered in 3" increments, some stock cabinets may only be available in 6" increments. This is important when it comes to the overall layout of your kitchen remodel, because stock cabinets are mass-produced to the same size and specifications with no regards as to where they go. You will usually need fillers and end panels to create a finished look when using stock cabinets. The end of each cabinet that is exposed, on both the upper and the base cabinets, will need to be finished to match the front of the cabinets. This will include cutting and fitting finished panels onto the cabinet carcass itself. Keep in mind that if you are running your cabinets wall to wall, then finishing the ends is not important since the wall will hide the ends.
If you are remodeling your kitchen (or building anew), you may need to choose a corner cabinet although not all kitchens need them.For example, a "galley" kitchen is called that because the walls (holding cabinets and appliances) that make up the kitchen face each other and, therefore, preclude the need for corner cabinets. Another possible arrangement in this vein would be an "L-shaped" kitchen with a straight-run of cabinets along one wall and another straight-run of cabinets on a wall that is perpendicular to it but separated from it by a doorway or floor-to-ceiling window. Cabinets installed in a straight run do not pose the variety of choices that corner cabinets do; therefore, if your new kitchen, bathroom, or office needs a corner cabinet, having a list of the types of corner cabinets currently available should help you make an educated choice in their shape and size.
