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.Details such as braids, rectangular dentils or bands of olive leaves add an elegant touch to your handiwork.Adhere the narrow detail strips inside the framework, selecting pieces of similar thickness for a quality fit.Before you start to install your kitchen cabinets, you should have removed the old kitchen, rerouted any utilities, and have the option to replace or finish the floor, if that is your plan.
Use flat plank-style molding for a simple or modern look, or select angled moldings for another effect.
Cut the molding at 45-degree angles for the corners if using angled moldings; flat moldings may be cut at 45- or 90-degree angles, with each piece butting up against its neighbors around the face of the door.
Whether you've chosen angled, mitered moldings or a basic, flat frame for the door fronts, upgrade them with detailed moldings.
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.
