How do I size kitchen cabinet molding?

Kitchen cabinet molding comes in many different sizes and types. Much of the sizing is a matter of taste and the look that you want to achieve. Do not install so much crown molding on your cabinets that they have a top-heavy look. Purchase cabinets in a size so they reach the ceiling or nearly reach the ceiling, and buy the molding in a width to fill in the gap. A good rule of thumb when applying moldings is the higher the ceiling, the wider size of molding you can use to create a good look.
