Crown molding is an additional element in the upper part of the cabinet that stands out like a “crown” that holds the top of the cabinet together with the ceiling. Crown molding is often found in classic or traditional kitchen cabinets because the “crown” has beautiful carvings and crown molding is often found in wooden kitchen cabinets. Installing the crown of the cabinet in your kitchen cabinet can provide features that are very beautiful and visually attractive to the kitchen, and this is a fairly simple job that can really change the look of the kitchen space.
In some cases, many homeowners choose to remove crown molding from their kitchen cabinets on the grounds that renovations will be made to modern-style kitchens. There are also some people who feel that if you remove the molding crown, it will add empty space above the cabinet so that it can be used as a storage area (like a wall storage).
The design of a kitchen cabinet without crown molding is often found in slab-style cabinets. Slab cabinets often go hand in hand with contemporary designs, even they can come with a more modern look. Sometimes this cabinet is also called a flat panel cabinet.
The design of this style cabinet is directly connected to the ceiling without crown molding, if not then there is a free space between the cabinet and ceiling that can be used to put collectibles such as glasses, plates and other antique glass kitchen items.
