“What is the difference between cornices and pelmets for solid oak kitchen cabinets?” Question of the Week 20.09.15
“What is the difference between cornices and pelmets for solid oak kitchen cabinets?”
Today’s ‘Question of the Week’ comes to us from Tim in Exeter, who wants some clarification on the difference between cornices and pelmets for solid oak kitchen cabinets.
“I am currently planning my new kitchen using components listed on your website, and whilst I feel very comfortable with the majority of the components, I am confused as to how which way round cornices and pelmets are configured.”
We are delighted that you are planning your new kitchen using our kitchen furnishings, and will be happy to answer your query regarding cornices and pelmets, which are commonly confused.
For clarification, a cornice is the cabinet trim that fixes on the top of a kitchen wall cabinets, whilst the pelmet is the smaller trim that goes around the bottom of the cabinet.
Each cornice and pelmet is constructed from a combination of solid oak and MDF, covered in a real oak foil. Unlike alternatives available from other suppliers, the entire visible edge of each cornice and pelmet is made from oak, meaning they can be cut or adjusted as necessary. The MDF portion on the rear of the cornice or pelmet makes fitting them to cabinets considerably easier, only requiring a few screws to hold them firmly in place.
Depending on the wall cabinets you have chosen for kitchen, we can offer cornices and pelmets to accommodate the design. Our range includes straight and curved options, which are all provided in natural sanded or lacquered finishes, or can be painted in any of the eggshell paints in Farrow & Ball’s range.
To find out more about our cornices and pelmets, read our ‘How to Pick and Install Cornices & Pelmets’ information guide.
