European Cabinets

European-style cabinets (also known as full-access or frameless cabinets) are by far the most popular kitchen cabinets in the world. They are the dominant cabinet style in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Canada. European cabinets are built with thicker, stronger case parts and no face frame, unlike the most common cabinet construction in the United States, which features solid wood face frames and thinner case parts.

 

The absence of a face frame in European cabinets allows for improved access to the interior area of cabinet, and it also increases the effective storage area by 10% compared to traditional framed cabinets. The European cabinet style has become standard in commercial settings, offices, schools and medical buildings in the United States, and they are growing in popularity in multifamily residential settings as well.

 

European cabinets have a cleaner and more contemporary look than traditional cabinets due to the smaller spaces (reveals) between the doors and drawer fronts and smooth, finished bottoms. Our European cabinets are made with high-tech, very precise automated assembly, allowing for precise fit, rigidity and strength. With European cabinets from Leedo, flexibility in construction allows for a huge variety of cabinet sizes and features, including custom solutions.
