What style works best on unframed cabinets?

Latches for Unframed Cabinets

Unframed cabinets, which are also known as European cabinets, have no frame between the cabinets and drawers. If you have this style in your house, you know the challenges that come with having no where to locate the safety latch needed to secure the doors and drawers in place against your child's curiosity. You will need to buy cabinet latches specifically made for this type of cabinet. Usually they are mounted on the sides of the drawer, or at the bottom of the cabinet doors. Be sure to follow all of the child safety latch installation instructions carefully and to check with a childproofing expert if you don't feel that the latches are secure. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
