There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing crown moldings besides the wood type, grain, and whether or not it will be painted or stained. You will want to consider the design of the crown molding for your kitchen. There are many styles to choose from so here are a few to start.
Wood is one of the most popular materials for crown moldings. It can be milled and cut into clean and crisp simple or very detailed designs. Cabinet Cures offers the finest wood crown moldings in a very large range of wood species and grains, both in hard- and softwoods. Choose from a wide variety of crown molding sizes and styles. If you are updating your kitchen cabinets by refacing or refinishing, Cabinet Cures will make sure your crown moldings match your newly painted, stained, or lacquered cabinets.
If you don’t have any moldings on your cabinets but have room on top, Cabinet Cures highly recommends it as these will help update your style as well as upgrade the look and feel of your kitchen. All of the crown moldings are manufactured in the Pacific Northwest.
Originating from the Beaux-Arts movement in the 18th century, the Dentil is a combination of art and architecture with its row of notched blocks. This generates dimension and depth in the crown molding. This blend of European and contemporary styles forms a somewhat strong masculine feel that can add a unique flair to your kitchen.
Egg & Dart:
Traced back to Erechtheion, the ancient temple in Athens, in Ancient Greek architecture, the Egg & Dart, also known as the egg-and-tongue, is a highly ornamented crown molding style. The alternating dart or arrow element with the egg-like shape is a popular pattern displaying the achievements of the Greek’s architecture.
Bead & Curve:
The Bead and Curve molding is a very simple and popular style to add to your cabinets. The elongated “S” curve of the design sits above a bead and is a solid crown molding for a clean look.
Deco style moldings draw inspiration from the Art Deco era with their angular shapes and clean lines. They can have simple or complex geometric designs.
This traditional looking, European architecture is an intricate crown molding made up of small bead or rope details. With the details to this classical style, the bead or rope details are often manufactured or carved separately and then placed into a channel in the wood molding. Stain or glazes add to complement the ornamented crown molding and upgrade the look of your cabinets.
