Advice on can behind kitchen countertop?

Michelle JonesCarol Cole

Answered

When we moved to our home there were only kitchen cabinets on back wall. We ripped everything out and wrapped cabinets around and I wanted and painted them. My dad had to build 2 to fill in corner and one on top. In doing so he built a bit too big so now we have a gap behind countertop. In some places it's 1/2" other a whole inch. Any suggestions on getting rid of this gap without replacing countertops. Thanks

    Just put a board that size in there and get some curved molding over that.

    What about a tile finishing cap? You could also use a narrow shelf to sit right on top of the backsplash edge. Small spaces I generally caulk with a caulk gun. Just finished doing this to the tops of the kitchen cabinets where they don't meet the wall. This also requires painting the caulking so be sure to get a paintable caulk.

      A shelf along there is exactly what I was thinking but my husband thinks it will look bad. Thanks for the suggestion. That's what I'm going to try
