Adding a valance to a base cabinet

Recommended Posts

New to Chief... would someone please spare me from "more" time wasted searching and tell me how you would attach a valance to a base cabinet? I figured out a way to do it but it was a bit complicated and I'm thinking there is an easier way.  I tried to do it within the individual cabinet dialogue where you add pilasters/feet etc... but that didn't work.  Eventually I just drug it over to the cabinet in an elevation view and then had to resize it and move it around to fit perfectly.  THANK YOU! Pic attached for basically what I'm looking for.

Are you using something from the library for your valance? If so, which item?

 

Is this for a single cabinet, or more for a kitchen or bath?

Yes. I used a valance from the moldings and misc. folder as well as the furniture (for bookcases, I think).  They both worked about the same.  And I would like to be able to use them in both instances (single and vanity).

Just noticed... the valances I attempted to use and posted in the previous pic are from the Dura Supreme catalogue.

I don't think these are made to attach to a cabinet. 

 

I would create a base like I've shown here. Make it a symbol set to stretch in its center so it would work with multiple cabinets.

Here are a few other ways to do it- simplest are the two on the right (edited oops) which have valance added in the accessories tab- one on the right has a custom symbol with returns.

 

The three on the left are not for the faint of hear to work out, takes a bit of practice and trial and error. Those have a custom door symbol that is a valance added.

The last one on the left is a cabinet used as a base with custom door symbol- then stick another cabinet on top.

Symbols are all in the plan. To learn from them open the objects DBX and also open the symbol DBX to see what is going on.

I don't set valances to stretch in the middle, rather  usually part way- open the symbols.
