How to Install Ikea Molding
Kitchen ceiling and floor moulding finishes a room. (kitchen 17 image by redking from

IKEA has moulding kits to finish floors with and for kitchen cupboards that reach to the ceiling. The kits include the fittings and the screws necessary for installation, but the PLAN clips for the floor moulding are sold separately. These clips attach to the wall, and are specially designed to fit IKEA floor moulding. Cleats come with the IKEA cabinets but you'll need tools to fasten them on properly.

  1. 1

    Measure the space between the top edge of the cabinets and the ceiling. Ensure that the moulding is the correct size to fit the space.

  2. 2

    Attach the cleats on to the cabinets, spacing them out evenly. The cleats act as a brace to keep the moulding straight across the cabinets during installation. Hang the moulding across, use the cleats to keep it in place. Hammer the nails into the moulding from inside the cabinet to attach the moulding to the kitchen cupboards.

  3. 3

    Glue the moulding to the ceiling, this is another way to attach it into place. Allow it to dry thoroughly. Remove the cleats when it is dry.

  1. 1

    Remove any moulding that currently exists with a hammer or crowbar.

  2. 2

    Use a hammer or screw driver to attach the PLAN clips to the wall. The clips should be placed 20 inches apart.

  3. 3

    Attach the skirting boards to the PLAN clips and snap into place.
