We installed a double wall oven and cabinet.The cabinet does not fit flush with the counter top. The trim we put in sticks out like a sore thumb and is not flush with the cabinet. The R side of the cabinet is fine just needs a very narrow piece of panel board to fit in flush with the trim that is on the oven cabinet. The L side gap is uneven from the back to the front and whatever we have tried to put in there looks horrible. We simply can't find or they don't make the pieces we want that will cover the gap and be flush with the cabinet and existing trim on the cabinet. It is very frustrating this project should not be taking this long. My husband is trying to get this done himself and it just looks awful.

Please help us here??

Thank you

Vicki Carter

I assume the cabinet comes up through the counter (taller than ).

They make end caps (for where the end of the counter meets the wall ) The cap is wood inside with formica outside to match. If the counter is pre-made then the cap is probable availabe pre-cut and with the matching formica. If not, then the cap is easy to make. In the end it looks like the backsplash of the countertop comes out to the front edge of the counter. I used a router to make the cutout for the coutertop deeper so the cap would fit between a frige and the counter (about 1/4 of an inch) or you could cut all the way through and just set the cap on the top of the counter. Make sure you caulk the seam to keep out water.

Same idea also works for the 'fancy' plastic counters if that is what you have.
