Add Cabinet Crown Molding

Nothing screams, "I spent lots of money on custom cabinets!" like crown molding. The trim transforms your kitchen storage into a seamless design.

Make adding extra personality to your cabinets simpler by mounting molding on a hardwood frame that sits above cabinets. Using a frame allows for doing the detail work on a bench—much easier than from a ladder—then you can attach the crown from the back side, so there are no nail holes to fill. Once the frame and crown are attached, you install the whole assembly in one go.
