Denver Natural Stone Kitchen Molding Styles and Benefits


October 29, 2019

One of the most intricate details to a kitchen is the molding selected that accompanies the cabinets and other surface areas. From crown molding atop a ceiling cabinet to chair rails and pencil molds, the difference these features can make is incredible. No matter if you are looking to upgrade an existing space or completing a remodel project, the implementation of specific moldings can definitely elevate your kitchen’s appeal.

Different molding types can serve to not only enhance the look of a specific area but some also have practical benefits. For these and other reasons, their growth in popularity is a monumental realization within the design industry. Installing even a few new features to existing cabinets can provide an entirely new look and feel to your space.

Chair Molding

One of the most popular moldings available, chair molding or chair rails, have both a practical and design specific purpose. Typically located about one-third of the way up a wall, this molding strip serves practically to protect the wall surface from being brushed by chairs in the room but also a design component because of the aesthetic break-up of the room where it is installed. 

Rope Molding

Rope molding adds that minor detail that can take your kitchen cabinets from good to great. Typically installed either above or below the outline, these pieces serve to enhance the overall look of a cabinet and can help tie in another area of the home. Able to be used in both the bathroom or kitchen, these materials can help to create a common flow and theme throughout any space.

Pencil Molding

Another popular molding type for use within a kitchen is the pencil molding. This “finishing touch” adds a sense of design and flow to the piece where it is installed. Comparatively similar to shoe molds, installed where the wall meets the floor, these pencil moldings created definite outlines for the cabinets and can help you raise the look of an existing kitchen without having to tear out or install any of the surfaces - unless your desire is to complete such a project.
