Show me your toe-kicks!
Thanks to the treasure trove of information on Gardenweb and the help of many of GW-ers, we are a few weeks closer to having our new kitchen completed!
We have a question on the toe-kick area.
We have off-white shaker style cabinetry, and are planning to finish the toe-kick area with the toe-kick board that came with the cabinets. But a KD said that we also need to put a quarter round in front of that toe-kick board to make it look more finished.
I don't care very much for a quarter round look, so I am inclined to leave the toe-kick board alone.
Attached is a photo of our kitchen in its current state, no toe-kick board installed yet.
Could you show me your toe kick area? Do you put quarter rounds or other type of finishing material in front of the toe-kicks, or do you just leave the toe-kick board as is?
Also, do you need to scribe the toe-kick to the floor? How do you seal the gap between the toe-kick board and the hardwood floor?
