One of the popular upgrades we can make to kitchen cabinets prior to painting them is installing crown moldings at the top of the cabinets. This makes ordinary kitchen cabinets look and feel more custom once painted. On many kitchen cabinets above the sink is a valance. Even worse is when this valance is “wavy”. We remove the valance and return the crown to the walls. This is a relatively simple thing to do but has a major affect on the over look of the cabinets. It makes your mundane and ordinary kitchen look much more custom.
