Mullion and Frame only solid wood frame cabinet doors - for kitchens, dining rooms, hutches, and glass front furniture
Ordering mullion or frame only doors has its complexity and simplicity to it. Glass front doors are more commonly found in your kitchen
upper cabinets, dining room hutches, and curio cabinets. You really do not use them in the bathroom, garage, laundry room, etc. They are a showcase door, what is behind them is generally viewed in plain
When you are ordering other doors from series 100, 200, 300, and 400, and you would like matching mullion or frame only doors to go with your paneled doors, then you just request them with no panel.
Omitting the panel thus makes the door a frame only door, abbreviated FO. This is one large opening in the door, prepped for glass, and you insert your decorative glass piece into the door. The door is construction of
the 4 frame pieces (top and bottom, left and right).
A Mullion door is that frame only opening dividing into multiple smaller openings. Has that grid appearance to it. Four-Lite and Six-Lite mullion doors are the
most popular. Your door height determines how many lites (openings) you can have and allow the door to look good. You do not want to cram a bunch of lites into a small door, it would look like a ventilation cover, that
is not appealing. So 4-lite and 6-lite are the most common that you see, along with frame only. Tall thin doors look better as frame only rather than dividing the opening into lites.
There are a few "specialty"
mullion designs shown below, such as the 292L and 292 R. These are 7-lite quarter circle top doors that come in left and right choices. Great when used in pairs, and best suited for nice furniture, or display cabinets
within your kitchen. The 200-D48 and 200-D39 specialty designs come in the lite patterns shown in the picture. They are designed to be fancier than standard mullion designs.
A frame only wood door will cost a
little less than a wood panel door. But then consider that you will have a glass cost and possibly and installation cost to put that glass in the door. Woodmont does not offer any glass or stained glass panels. You will
have to source them for your doors yourself. When it comes to a mullion door, each lite opening adds to the cost of the door. So doors with more lites cost more than doors with less lites. We will quote all doors for
you in advance. Quotes can be done on-line, via fax, mail, or on the phone.
When it comes to Thermal Foil doors (RTF) in mullion desigs, all that info will be on our series 800 web page.
Mullion and frame only doors can come unfinished or finished. You can have them bored for concealed hinges
just as other cabinet doors are. Depending upon the glass you use, some may become heavier than their wood panel door counterparts. An extra hinge or two on larger doors to help support the weight is always a good
This first picture shows
you some of the basic and fancy mullion door designs. And will give you helpful info about calculating the number of lites that will look good in the size of doors you are ordering.
The next picture below is what the door frames look like if you sliced the frame and looked at it straight on from the edge. All door
designs in Series 200 and 400 can have whichever frame you like best. The DEFAULT frame size is 2-1/8". For wider frames, 2-3/8" and 3" are available. Look at the coding and sizing beneath each frame choice. Example:
Frame S is 2-1/8", SL is larger, thus 2-3/8", and S3 is the 3" version. Follow that across for the other frame choices. Again, the default size is 2-1/8" and it will cost less than the 2-3/8" or 3" wide frames.
NOTE, the door minimum sizes increase with wider frames.
We have also added several notes within the graphic below too.
AND PLEASE NOTICE THIS:
All the door
designs shown in the bottom half of this graphic can be requested as FRAME ONLY. This will mean that they have no panels in them. BUT, not every design below would make for good mullion doors, when you split those
openings. Take for example designs 212, 209, 204, 213, and 210. Because of the midrails, or the odd top and bottom, dividing these designs into mullion lites would look a bit odd. Just our opinion.
The below graphic are the Edge choices for mullion and frame only doors. You will select a frame from above, and an edge from below. Frame
only doors are just the one big opening. Mullion lites are that opening split into multiple openings.
