Finishing off the Edges

So, you have your cabinet finish, door style and hinging style chosen. But, we’re not done yet! To fill in the edges of the room we select from various types of moulding.

The first choice is at the ceiling, referred to as crown moulding. We have various options – wide Crown Moulding, Designer Crown with dentil, rope or egg & dart detail, and our popular Beaded-Cove Moulding.

At the floor is baseboard, which we run along base ends, as well as the back of any island or peninsula in the kitchen. This gives the cabinets a more substantial appearance, much like high quality furniture.

Finally, detail mouldings like plinth, chair rail and edge treatments can be used to dress-up the cabinets. Plinth is an excellent option when coupled with inset hinging, as many of our previous clients comment that it “finishes off” the bottom of the cabinets.

The moulding used in the kitchen can step up the cabinet design significantly. Choosing which type, how much and where you want moulding is decided on a kitchen-to-kitchen basis, and will have a substantial impact on the final style of the room.
