Wood Detail Options Add Depth, Character & Texture to Kitchen Designs
There are an unbelievable array of wood details, so a simple blog won't cover them all. However, we're going to share the eight most commonly-used in traditional and transitional designs.
Wood details can be addictive, so it's important that you determine which ones enhance your kitchen - without designing such a detail-rich kitchen that it results in a cluttered look and feel.

You may also see this written as crown moulding (if it runs along the perimeter of the room where the wall-meets-ceiling), base moulding (if it runs along the bottom-perimeter where the wall-meets-floor) or decorative trim - which can be applied just about anywhere.
Moulding comes in all shapes and sizes and although most wood details are intentionally left out of modern kitchen designs, there are modern or more streamlined moulding options available. It can be added to ceiling or the upper-portion of the cabinets.
These are found on the underside of things, be it an island overhang or a decorative hood. They can be squared, rounded or scrolled, and give the appearance that they are helping to hold things up.
3. Legs & Posts
These can come in the form of true support, like the square, column-like leg that holds up the expanded island countertop/seating area in the Classic Cordovan. In other cases, the legs or posts are added onto the body of an island for peninsula for extra detail and artistry.
4. Reeding or Fluting
Reeding is a linear, rounded and convex accent, while fluting is its linear and concave opposite. In kitchens, reeding or fluting are often used on legs or posts. The Hard Maple Island is partially supported by legs adorned with large, spiraled reeding.
You can decorate your legs and posts even further by giving them detailed feet. Some popular feet styles include delicate Queen Ann feet, whose low profiles would work well at the end of a peninsula in a smaller kitchen, buns, which look just like they sound, or tulips, which are like bun fee with an elegant flair.
Just like the window treatment versions, valances help to frame the upper-portion of a window, cabinet or hood area. They are often arched, which can be a nice change in a linear kitchen design, and moulding can be used to dress them up a bit.
7. Appliques or Onlays
Sometimes, just a simple swirl, leaf scroll or or fleur de lis is added to the cabinet body to give it a little pizzazz. These "ad ons" are called appliques or onlays.
8. Wooden Hoods
Most kitchen hoods are made from metal. This look is fine for any kitchen design. However, many traditionalists prefer the look of wood to metal, and opt to install a wooden hood cover.
Wood hoods are often on the larger side, but the smaller version in the Prestigious Dunewood Square works perfectly in a kitchen with a minimal footprint.
