Measuring for Reface Materials
2-3/8” Crown Molding: This molding is used for the tops of the cabinets. If your cabinets are butted to the ceiling, you need to make sure that you have enough room at the top, between the ceiling and the top of the cabinet doors. The crown will hang down 1-7/8” we recommend 2-1/2” clearance. If you have not cut and installed crown molding before, it can be tricky. Before you decide to order crown, review some websites on the internet dedicated to cutting and installing crown molding. For other options on trimming the tops of your cabinets see Base & Scribe Molding.
2-3/8” Base Molding: This molding is typically used at the base of the cabinets. It also can be used at the top of the cabinets. If you are planning on using it at the top of your cabinets, make sure you have enough room (we recommend 3”) between the cabinet doors and ceiling.
Scribe Molding: This molding is used to trim out the space between the wall and the cabinets, this can include the top and base of the cabinets. Our scribe molding is 7/8” wide by ¼” thick and has a decorative fluted design.
