Custom Mouldings Add Style to Kitchen Cabinetry

This custom crown moulding also comes with a dentil detail.

Do you want to add a little extra something to your kitchen cabinetry to give it a little more style? Try custom mouldings! Custom mouldings are wooden accents that are built onto either the top of bottom of your cabinetry to give it more style. This small detail can make an entire kitchen look more impressive and stylish. Here are a few types of mouldings to consider.

Crown Moulding

You can’t go wrong with a classic crown moulding. This style of moulding has been around for centuries. It is constructed to have layers of texture that add an elegant flair to any room. Crown mouldings are usually placed at the top of a room to make the room seem larger. If you want to extend your cabinetry to the ceiling, a crown moulding is a great way to do without without exposing a hard corner. Because of the long history of the crown moulding, adding it to your kitchen can create a regal and historic effect.

Light Moulding

This type of moulding is composed of a wooden valance and underlighting. The valance is attached to the bottom edges of your kitchen cabinetry, which adds a bit of extra texture to your cabinets. A valance can also disguise the bottoms of your cabinets. Subtle lighting is attached to the bottoms of your cabinets to create a stylish glow that also helps to brighten your work areas.

Shoe Moulding

Finally, a shoe moulding goes on the very bottom of your lower cabinets where the toe kick board is. However, unlike the toe kick board, a shoe moulding is only on the sides, rather than along the entire bottom. Shoe moulding connects the cabinets directly to the floor on each side, with exposed space in between for the toe kick board. Shoe mouldings are good for making your cabinetry appear more solid and supported.
