question re: crown molding and base molding on new kitchen

growingadviceNovember 24, 2010

I'm having new kitche cabinets put in. they are dark brown color the name is actually "hazelnut chocolate".

Our floow is laminate floor, with the color of a "honey oat".

I have a couple of questions I was wondering if somewone could help me with.

What color should the base molding be? should it match the cabinets or the floor?

Also, what is everyones opinion on crown molding? should I go for it or not?

Any suggestions on design?

Adding crown molding brings up the price about 25%, but after spending so much money on the kitchen, I dont' want it to look crappy!



I plan on getting the cabinets through costco, in case it matters to anyone.

You may want to post your question on the Home Decorating forum. I think you'll get a lot more response.

The base molding often matches the trim around your doors and windows and crown molding color can vary depending on the wall color.

Posting pics of your cabinets and flooring will help.
