MADE TO ORDER. MADE TO FIT. MADE FOR LIFE.

Introducing our International Metric Collection, a line of cabinetry created to exacting European standards and adapted for the American market.
As early adapters of European thinking and design, we’ve been making frameless cabinetry since 1985. Thus, International Metric is designed to match or exceed established European design standards. With high-end designer cabinetry appearing in fashionable homes everywhere, this new line of frameless cabinetry can help you achieve authentic, clean, contemporary styling.

We carefully select only the finest materials, and build every cabinet to resist years of exposure to moisture, steam, water and the demands of any high-use environment.

 

DESIGNING FOR METRIC

Traditional American cabinets are measured in inches, making it all but impossible for most domestic cabinet manufacturers to replicate the look and proportions created by European companies. To respond to increasing demand for European-style cabinetry, we designed the International Metric Collection to adapt European standards to our own American-made brand of quality cabinets using a wide range of materials sourced from both continents.

  • Frameless yields 25%  more useable space than framed cabinetry
  • Similar look to framed cabinetry at a lower cost
  • Larger selection of hardware
  • Wider selection of materials

Every component in this collection uses metric measurements, based on a 32mm system, which divides neatly by two (16mm, 8mm, 4mm). These easily divisible measurements produce horizontal proportions, heights, and thicknesses that work beautifully together, with tight tolerances and clean lines.   

The result? Beautiful European styling, made and shipped in America for incredible beauty, lasting workmanship and responsive local service.

CUSTOM STYLES TO FIT YOUR VISION PERFECTLY

Christiana Cabinetry is custom cabinetry. And as a fully custom cabinetmaker, we can make and modify cabinet sizes to any specification you require.

Because custom measurements mean no wasted space, you’re free to design anything from narrow storage or display areas to a continuous run of cabinetry sized perfectly to fit any area. For our International Metric collection, we also produce a range of standard sizes, and offer additional European-standard cabinet configurations and sizes. Dimensions are also standardized to accommodate U.S. appliances.

 

Colors

We offer five standard matte and high gloss colors, twelve thermally structured laminates, and five recon veneers. Custom grain matching or color formulas are available as exterior finish options to help you achieve your vision.

We offer several styles of flat panel doors available in twelve beautifully textured woodgrain finishes, or with five matte or high gloss melamine finishes. You can also specify unique aluminum framed doors inset with a collection of specialty glass panels.

Boxes

We make our structural components from melamine-faced furniture panels.

All panels, including cabinet backs, are water repellent and conform to the most stringent international regulations for environmental and health standards. Cabinet interiors come in three North American-made melamine finishes, and optional North American-made plywood.  Even our hanging system is unique, ensuring that every component is level, plumb, and effortlessly adjustable. Corner cabinets include an additional bracket to prevent sagging.
