If you want to turn dull, boring cabinets into a classic, attractive feature in your kitchen, we can help. With crown molding installation in Cary, you can transform your cabinets at a fraction of the cost of replacing them.
Why Choose Crown Molding for Your Cabinets
Crown molding is a decorative feature that is often installed at the top of cabinets, walls, or over top of doors and windows. With an attractive sculpted edge, this adds interest to an otherwise simple element in the home.
Crown molding trim dates back to 500 BCE in Ancient Greece, though at that time, it was crafted from stone. Traditional plaster or wood trim didn’t become commonly used until the 18th century where it was a design feature in upper-class homes. While crown molding has become accessible to nearly all types of homes, it hasn’t lost its air of sophistication and luxury, making it a popular way to add beauty to your home.
There are two common reasons to install crown moldings for cabinets:
- Your existing cabinets are a bit dull or dated and you’d like to give them a more attractive look.
- Your cabinets reach the ceiling, but construction or installation flaws have left gaps, and you need a way to hide the spaces. (Think of it as making lemonade out of lemons)
No matter what the reason, we can reface your cabinetry with high quality wooden molding in a fraction of the time and cost of a renovation!
Types of Cabinet Molding
When it comes to molding for your cabinets, there are five main design styles that are commonly used:
Bead & Curve
The bead & curve style is the most traditional and popular option with a curved, concave top and the half-round, concave shape at the bottom half of the molding. It is a simple design that adds a subtle touch to your cabinets.
Rope or bead details gives this European style molding a luxurious look. Generally, with this type of detailing, the bead or rope details are created separately and then attached to the crown molding by a cut or groove.
Egg & Dart
Egg & dart molding alternates oval egg shapes with v-shapes to add interest. One of the most widely used in classical moldings, this type dates back to an ancient temple in Athens called the Erechteion.
Dentils are small blocks that are evenly spaced, creating dimension and depth. While it dates back to ancient Athens and Rome, it didn’t become widely used until the Beaux-Art architectural movement of the 1830s through 1850s. This type often adds a more masculine feel to a space.
Art Deco molding blends clean lines and geometric shapes in an intricate pattern. While art deco had its heyday from 1910 to 1930, today’s art deco styling has a more streamlined look that adds a modern touch to any kitchen style.
