Why it happens: Because homes aren’t perfectly level. And when you hang cabinets to be level (which you should), that leaves gaps next to the wall.
How the pros do it: For a finished look, you have to go the extra mile, Blake says. Fill the gap with wood shims. (If you’ve ever wedged anything under a table leg to stop it from rocking, you’ve used a shim. The same technique works here, except you can actually buy ones that work better than a folded napkin.) Then cover the shims with the same molding used in the rest of the room.
