You can use moulding and trim to transition between different wall materials, such as wood paneling and plaster, or between the cabinets and the ceiling and floor. The mouldings and trim may be made from hardwoods such as oak, maple, and cherry or painted softwoods like pine. You can also get the look of painted wood for less money by using mouldings made out of rigid foam covered with vinyl.

Mouldings and trim can star in your new kitchen or they can play a supporting role. In contemporary kitchens, you’ll find them minimal and uncluttered, if used at all. In more traditional kitchens—such as a French Country style—you’ll see heavy wood accenting and detailing, such as hand-carved crown mouldings, corbels, and panels. Mouldings can be stacked to achieve a more substantial effect. Furniture feet may be used on the cabinets and extensive rope, dentil, fluting, and other elaborate mouldings may contribute significantly to the kitchen’s overall design statement.
