Add personal style to any room
Adding moulding to cabinets gives them a special flair and a stamp of personality. Available in multiple styles and designs, each type of cabinet moulding is a work of art in its own right, while supporting the overall design theme of a remodel.
What is cabinet moulding?
Cabinet moulding, sometimes spelled cabinet molding, is a long, narrow decorative piece of wood that is used to give cabinetry a customized look. It can be used to cover the space between the cabinets and the ceiling, installed atop or below a cabinet, or inserted into the cabinet front. Most of the time moulding is finished in the same color as the cabinetry, but it can also be finished in an accent color.
Types of Cabinet Moulding
Although there are several types of cabinet moulding available, here are a few varieties commonly found in homes.
As its name implies, this type of moulding rests at the very top of a cabinet, giving it a "crown" of decorative wood.
