Frequently Asked Questions

People have a lot of questions for us about how Demetra works. Allow us to answer some of our most frequently asked questions!

What is Euro-style/frameless cabinetry?

Frameless cabinetry, also referred to as full access or Euro-style, is an open box configuration that lacks a face frame. This cabinet style offers enormous flexibility in configurations providing a more customized space. With the lack of a face frame, there is less space between doors from cabinet to cabinet, resulting in clean lines with flush doors and hidden hinges.

Are Euro-style cabinets for me?

If you are looking for cabinets that are a bit roomier and mailed traditional door styles offered in our Clean Classics. Frameless cabinets offer clean lines with either contemporary door styles or the richer detility in designing your cabinet layout.

What types of woods do Demetra Cabinetry cabinets come in?

Currently our cabinets are all maple but we are developing our line of bamboo cabinets, expected this year. If you would like to be updated on the status of our bamboo line, just let us know.

How does Demetra Cabinetry compare to other cabinet options like “off the shelf” or custom?

The materials and construction techniques used in Demetra Cabinetry cabinets are superior to those used in “off the shelf” or RTA (ready-to-assemble) cabinets. At Demetra Cabinetry, we use 3/4" formaldehyde-free (CARB-certified) furniture grade plywood and real wood veneer facing. Lesser cabinets are made with particleboard or 1/2" plywood. To cut cost and prices, many companies use camlock fasteners to save money in the short run. Over time, these short cuts tend to loosen and fall apart. Our products come fully-assembled and are built-to-order; all you have to do is arrange for the installation of the cabinets and selected door hardware.

When your budget isn’t quite ready for custom cabinets, Demetra Cabinetry offers the next best solution. Our cabinet bodies are finely crafted and built to custom shop standards. The biggest difference is that our cabinet bodies come in pre-defined sizes versus custom sizes. Additionally, our doors and drawers are standard - which helps reduce the cost as doors can typically be the most expensive part of your custom purchase.

Do I have to assemble my Demetra cabinets?

No! When you purchase Demetra Cabinetry, you are buying high quality, built-to-order cabinets ready for installation.
