While unaccented cabinetry may have its place in a utilitarian setting, it is amazing what an incredible difference a small half-round wood strip of molding will make in the decor of a room. Half dowel molding in a small size is well suited to dressing up a room without making it look cluttered or overdone. The right molding running along the edge of the cabinetry or working as the facing on the front of a shelf has so much possibility; it has the potential to tie in all the design elements in the room, creating a great visual unity and really making the room look complete. Or, when used along with their accompanying selection of half plinth blocks and spools, small half round molding can be used to create a low relief faux column that can frame doorways, in-wall shelving areas, or even the edges of floor to ceiling bookcases. The use of small carved moldings is a versatile design tool that should never be underestimated.
