Some cabinet door moulding is thinner than an inch. Some mouldings are handcrafted with intricately layered relief patterns. No matter the size or detail, the simple and often inexpensive act of adding moulding to cabinet doors can transform what was once a flat panel into a work of cabinetry art. Explore some ideas and suggestions, and visualise the aftereffects you can create by adding moulding to your cabinet doors.

Dentil Molding

Use the classic touch of dentil moulding to take cabinets from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Stain or paint to match the doors, or use a contrasting finish to add eye-catching definition.

Rope Molding

Rope moulding is a highly versatile wood crafting tool. It completes the look of cabinet door designs. Be creative and experiment with using it as an inset or on the door edge borders. Work with different sizes to layer and create a look that is yours alone to either flat or raised panel cabinet doors.

Hand-Carved Moldings

Eliminate thoughts that hand-carved mouldings are reserved for cabinets of the rich and famous. Use hand-carved mouldings on cabinet doors in homes at every price point and any neighbourhood. They add depth and character that make you feel proud. Beautifully handcrafted and full of detail, carved mouldings convey a finished look of stateliness. They often incorporate relief details of leaves, grape vines and classic, timeless patterns. Adding carved mouldings to cabinet doors makes a grand statement about your love for your home and sense of style.

Crown Molding

Explore using crown moulding to add sophistication to your cabinet doors. The addition can add the appearance of the height and even create a seamless look between your cabinets and the room's ceiling.

Rounded Edge Molding

Instead of keeping the edges of cabinets bland and straight, use rounded mouldings to provide character and professional attention to detail. While they are simple in their construction, it is amazing how the addition of rounded mouldings to your cabinet doors provides them with a true look of class and perfection.

Dual Purpose Cabinet Corner Molding

Many homeowners use corner mouldings constructed in various dimensions, details and designs to hide cords and cables so that the kitchen space is clear and immaculate in presentation.
