Inset doors and drawers can be a real pain when it comes time for final fitting. But they’re worth it.
When you see something you don’t like, you usually can describe what part of the design doesn’t work for you (too curvy, too busy, etc.). For me though, it can be difficult when something is aesthetically pleasing to pin down and describe why it is enjoyable to look at.
When a piece has inset doors and drawers, it is more attractive. People may not be able to put into words why it is attractive, but it is.
