Turn even the most drab kitchen cabinets into custom-designed creations by dressing up the cabinet doors with molding.
Frame the shape of the door with flat or angled molding, or add an extra touch with details and faux-carved trim for the look of expensive cabinets at a fraction of the cost.
These cabinets have wood doors and fronts, but the sides are made of laminate to look like oak and were slightly lighter in color.
The sides were also recessed from the front, which left the perfect amount of space to add bead board to the sides without having to add finishing trim.
The sign said – professional results, eliminating the need for miter cuts.
Sand the perimeter of each cabinet door, no matter what it is made of, to make the adhesive stick better.
Use a wood glue for wooden cabinets and trim, or a multi-purpose construction adhesive suitable for laminates or non-wood surfaces, if either the cabinet doors or the moldings are not wood.
A very simple and quick update is to add molding or trim to the cabinet doors.
You can attach using short nails, but for doors that are thin, you want to use a strong adhesive.
