Your cabinets are the most visible, noticeable features in your kitchen. With crown molding from Cabinet Cures of the Triangle, we can create a more attractive, classic look at a fraction of the cost of replacing your cabinets.
Why Choose Crown Molding for Your Cabinets
Crown molding is a decorative ledge that is installed at the top of a wall, over top of a door or window, or on top of a cabinet. Sculpted on one side to create an aesthetically pleasing design and flat on the other for convenient installation, 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 originate until the 18th century where they became a feature in upper-class homes.
While crown molding has become more accessible over time, it hasn’t lost its air of sophistication and luxury, which is why it is such a popular element that can dress up a drab space with ease and add value to your home.
There are two key reasons to install crown moldings for cabinets:
- Your existing cabinets are looking dull, dated, or boring and you’d like to give them a fresh look while creating the appearance of a larger, more luxurious kitchen.
- Your cabinets extend to the ceiling, but there are gaps where the ceiling isn’t level to the cabinetry, and you need a way to hide the spaces without calling attention to the flaws. (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, the possibilities are limitless for customization, starting with the five main design styles:
Bead & Curve
The bead & curve style is the most traditional and popular option known for the concave, curved 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 royal 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. You can add to this molding’s style with beautiful stains or glazes.
Egg & Dart
Egg & dart molding alternates oval egg shapes with a dart or v-shape. One of the most widely used in classical moldings, this type can be traced 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. It’s somewhat masculine feel is a blend of contemporary and European styles, allowing you to add a unique flair to your kitchen.
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 will accentuate any kitchen style.
