What Are Cambridge-Style Cabinets?


What Are Cambridge Style Cabinets?


The Cambridge-style cabinets are built like Shaker-style cabinets with adornments galore. The difference between the Shaker-style and Cambridge-style is a raised frame around the entire door front, with an interior raised frame around a beveled center panel, which also has a raised frame. The beautiful Cambridge-style is as traditional as you can get with a semi-custom cabinet.

All doors and drawers start with the simple Shaker recessed panel, but the birch raised and framed panel overlay with the beveled edge gives it the warm and comfortable feel of traditional cabinets. If your home is mainly wood tones, in very classic lines, crown molding embellishments, and beveled baseboards, the Cambridge-style might be the right fit for you. 

The Cambridge-style cabinets can be accessorized even more with an antique white or sable-brown paint finish, handles, and knobs to fit right into your home decor.

What is the Cambridge Style?

At Cabinet Corp, Cambridge-style cabinets have all plywood 1/2” box with painted exterior. The solid birch frame had a solid birch center panel door and drawer with glue & staple or metal clip assembly.

All drawers have clip assembly for the full-overlay drawers with full undermount soft-close glide allowing for full extension. The full-overlay doors have concealed European-style soft-close hinges. The interior is UV coated 1/2” natural plywood. 

The cabinets come in a choice of two finishes:

  • Antique white
  • Sable brown

These colors continue to be high on the design trends but lend well toward traditional design. 

With glossy countertops or stainless steel appliances, your kitchen can have a more transitional look with the contemporary and traditional mix. Giving you all the beauty of wood cabinets and the durability you expect.
