Types of Build Styles
Swan Creek has several different build styles for various applications or budgets. We can find the right mix of detail and function.
Classic Construction is a Swan Creeks face frame cabinet with 0.5” reveal, 0.625” plywood construction, 0.625” plywood adjustable shelf with 1.25” wide X 0.75” thick shelf band. 0.5” and 1.25” overlay soft close compact euro hinges are used to achieve the desired reveal per scenario.
Occasionally, other overlay hinges are employed to achieve the look, or overcome a circumstance; 0.75”, 1”, and universal hinges.
Classic’s face frame is predominately 1.5” with wider top rails to accommodate for crown and trims (typically 2.25”).
Wider stiles are also used at wall terminations; allowing door/drawer clearance near casings and base, providing more scribe to adjust fit/finish to wall, and allowing room for hardware/accessories adjacent to walls.
Finished ends are veneer, flat paint-grade substrate, or a panel; all of which are joined, sanded flush, and finished to the face frame.
Classic drawers are English dovetailed, 0.625” thick hardwood, with full extension soft close undermount slides.
Hoods, mantles, floating shelves, posts, corbels are some examples of custom products.
Many of these items are “one-off”; engineered and built to a specific desired look, or to fit a particular situation.
There are a few standard options that have been repeated historically, but these items are generally executed situationally.
This is a face frame cabinet.
The doors and drawer fronts are "inset" making them flush with the face frame
More material is used for inset as each box opening is built out flush with the face frame; eliminating “common” or shared, partitions and dividers.
The standard is 3/32” door and drawer front gaps at all openings.
Inset hinges are long arm, euro. Drawer construction is the same as Classic.
Door strikes are installed in all openings just behind the face frame to allow a rest point for the doors. Shelf construction is the same as Classic.
Frameless Melamine Standard Build
0.75” melamine with a 1mm PVC edge band.
Shelves are the same material. Full overlay doors with a long arm, euro hinges.
Drawer cores are the same as our classic line.
Items can be added to FMS to upgrade (for an additional cost).
Painted or stained doors, and mouldings such as crown and base.
Separate end panels can also be applied, either flat or paneled.
0.125”-0.1875” reveals are typical for FMS.
The upper and base cabinets are constructed in the same manner as Classic, the difference being the material.
Typical doors for FMS would be the same melamine material with a 1mm band, or a traditional 5 piece door.
Frameless Premium Build
This is the same construction method as FMS.
The materials are the difference.
Birch or maple veneer are used for the box rather than melamine, and the edge band is solid wood, .125” thick. A variety of options and upgrades are also available just as with FMS; applied panels, and additional mouldings.
Typical doors for FP would be a banded substrate .125” thick hardwood, then veneered over, or choose from a traditional 5 piece door.
If it wasn't for you I would not have known about all the different options! Thank you for sharing those details with us. It totally makes a difference in having everything fit.
We so appreciated the help with design, wood type, and stain/color. We also want to extend a thank you to the guys for meeting with us to select wood, and for their expertise in matching grains!
I wanted you to know how truly impressed I am with you, your staff, your product and your service! My cabinets look like new, which has to be hard to try to match cherry finish that had aged for 8.5 years. You guys are the best!
I wanted you to know how sincerely we appreciate your concern, integrity and due diligence on our home project. We have a house that has truly become a home. Your attention to detail, your perspective, and your practicality really put the extra WOW factor into our home.
We love the kitchen! It's a dream come true. The lazy susans, roll-out shelves, key hooks, and mail slots have all helped us to get organized. We have appreciated working with you and all your employees. You have a great crew!
