I am completely redoing my kitchen. My house is 1920's ish and we would like to keep as much of the old wood as I can. The door and window trim has been stripped, sanded and restained and they look great. We have a few areas in the kitchen where the new cabinets have encroached upon the old trim. The original 5 1/4 trim board may need to be ripped down to 3 inches to fit next to that cabinet, but only on the right side of the door. There is no obstruction of the left. My opinion is to only cut the one that needs cut and leave the other one at 5 1/4. My wife says it will look asymmetrical and we should rip the other trim even though there is no practical reason to do so.
Either way, I feel like your eye is going to tell you something isn't right with this door, but as I am no carpenter/contractor or anything of the sort, I was just wondering what "They" would do in this situation.
Thanks in advance!
