When you are designing a new kitchen with Busby Cabinets (they carry the best Kitchen Cabinets Orlando residents use in their homes), it is easy to fall in love with the beauty of our custom cabinet doors. While the style and color of your selection definitely sets the tone for a stunning presentation once the boxes are installed, one look at our gallery will tell you that kitchen cabinet crown molding is what pulls the design together and gives you a detailed, and completed look. Not only does the molding serve as a decorative finish, it frequently addresses and corrects the inevitable changes in level that come from a house settling into itself over the years. For more than one reason, it is a worthwhile investment of your time to discuss crown molding with your cabinet designer.
The most common type of crown molding for kitchen cabinets is one running layer installed to the tops of the cabinets. This satisfies the basic design need of visually tying the separate boxes together to create the look of a unified structure. It adds a bit of height to the cabinet run, and can amplify the style you have selected. There are unlimited options to choose from, whether you are drawn to a traditional ornate ogee shape, a transitional curved cove, or a contemporary simple and minimal flat board–or any version in-between. This is a relatively straightforward selection and is an installation process that does not add a great amount of time to your project length.
You may want to add interest by creating what is called a stacked crown molding. This is achieved through combining different pieces to add height or complexity to the design. Sometimes due to site conditions, such as a ceiling that is out of level, it is a good idea to layer detailed moldings above and below a simple flat molding. This creates an optical illusion that everything is straight, as the eye is drawn to the even intricate moldings and does not notice that the flat molding has 1” exposed on one end of your kitchen, and 1-1/2” showing on the other. You can also use stacked molding to fill in the gap between the tops of your cabinets and the ceiling or soffit, so that dusting becomes a chore of the past. Keep in mind that the more complex the kitchen cabinet crown molding, the more time it will take to finalize your perfect design, as well as adding more time to the length of the installation.
