Details. They do matter when it comes to molding!

Here is an array of examples of how the addition of trim, moldings, and other wood workings can enhance design to take it from boxes... to furniture like quality. A little attention to details can really make your space unique... and personalized.
Project photos/designs by Becky Sue Becker, CMKBD, CAPS. Cabinetry all custom Private label by Designs by BSB. Questions.. comments welcome!
Add columns 1-2" deeper, this transition makes a big statement in the crown (light rail and baseboard) moldings
Island? Check out the details of the flat trim at the bottom with the pedestal feet
Flush baseboard .. raises the bar
Toe board cut outs, also known as furniture valance (names vary by manufacturer) -- add furniture appeal. This custom kitchen had each section custom tailored to the size of each section.
Another example of columns and valance boards... in addition, this displays another alternative to a full height pantry. Note the upper cabinet is slightly less in depth - hiding behind (pocket doors) is an appliance center
Corbels can be used in a multitude of areas. Shown here are custom corbel "hutch" ends to frame out a space ... could be used at a butler's pantry, desk or other stand alone section. Just not ideal in water areas.
Another example of flush baseboard. Note it also wraps the turned legs. Common parts.. enhanced.
Taking details to the bathroom. Do you think this mirror/medicine cabinet would be a quaint w/o crown molding and a basic bottom ledge? This is a custom medicine cabinet... looking grand with an "inset" mirrored door. Also note the custom linen cabinet with side access ... with flush baseboard :)

    @Steve .. there are times that I really enjoy the "less is more" design approach - actually more so on than off! But living in a mostly traditional town keeps me diversified :) Thanks for the comments ladies... details is what really gives a homeowner the opportunity to personalize the design! I appreciate the details... taking it from boxes, to furniture. While most of these are ornate, I think the same can apply to more modern/simplistic designs as well. Picture to come..

    Example of details ... in a simple, modern application below. Do you appreciate them? 1. 2pc crown instead of just one 2. stainless steel (laminate) toe kick 3. how about using sconces instead of a can over the window? :) 4. milk/sand blasted glass instead of clear glass 5. float the shelves .. unexpected 6. s/s stand offs to support the snack area instead of a knee wall (noting the glass does not divide the space like the alternative) 7. do not discredit outlets. note the outlet in the side of the peninsula - it is brown so it virtually disappears. Often times, colors are special order .. so plan ahead! 8. ... err.. what did you catch that I didnt mention? :)
