Casa amazona provides quality and beautiful cabinetry that our costumers love. Meticulously sorted, expertly milled and then hand-crafted into a work of art. When you purchase our cabinets, expect the drawer glides not only moves quickly but also smoothly, gently closing with a push of a fingertip.

We know that color is a serious matter that is why we have a wide collection of the color palette so you’re sure to find your perfect shade. Our experts embrace new ideas to create the look that suits your taste and also appropriate for your place. We’re here to help you through the process as you envision your new cabinets coming to pass. We understand that style is a reflection of who you are and how you live and it is important to have everything on point.

Now that you are thinking about a project, you’ll appreciate knowing the cabinet terminology that Designers and Contractors are talking about. While it can sound like a whole new language, we’ve added descriptions to make it easy to understand


  • Face Frame – The structural portion of the cabinet to which doors are attached, consisting of both rails and stiles.
  • End Panel – The side of the cabinet that is grooved into the face frame and extends back to the wall.
  • Bottom – The floor of the cabinet. On a wall and tall cabinet, the same component is used as the top.
  • Back – The rear vertical surface used to mount the cabinet to the wall.
  • Adjustable Shelves – Horizontally placed storage surfaces that are adjusted by moving clips used to hold the shelf in place.
  • Toe kick – The recessed toe space at the bottom of a base cabinet.


  • Center Panel – The raised or flat panel in the middle of a door enclosed by stiles and rails.
  • Center Stile – Sometimes called a mullion, this is the raised rail in the middle of a door that is enclosed by stiles and rails.
  • Edge Profile – Shape put on the outside edge of a door or drawer front.
  • Rail – A horizontal framing member of a cabinet face frame or door.
  • Reveal – On a framed cabinet, the distance between the outside edge of the face frame and the outside edge of the door.
  • Stile – The vertical-framing members of a cabinet face frame or cabinet door.


  • Dovetail Joint – An interlocking corner joint where pins on one piece fit into sockets on a second piece and dovetail together.
  • Drawer Glide – The system used to support the drawer in a cabinet and provide opening/closing operation.

It’s a lot of terminologies and we are here to help. Visit us at and we will guide you through with your cabinetry journey.
