Cabinet install...vanity and linen tower


I am installing a linen tower and a vanity in my bathroom. The linen tower is going in a corner. I am able to get the tower level and plumb and it sits tight to the sidewall. but, on the back wall, the top and bottom of the tower are snug to the wall but the middle is about a 1/4 inch off the wall. Aside from making the wall plumb, do cabinets normally get a trim piece to hide gaps?

I am doing kitchen cabinets soon and I am sure I will run into this again.

Thanks

Got a picture?
A simple piece of cove moulding will work.

You have a curved wall---Either add a small trim or get out the drywall tools and fill that---

Sometimes a flaw like that can spoil your day-----

I attached a picture but the gap doesn't show due to shadows. I bet most people wouldn't notice but I do and I am sure my girlfriend will. I think a piece of trim will do the trick.

Scribe molding will do the trick and isn't that noticeable. All the cabinet manufacturers have it to match their colors.

Is that cabinet flat across the whole back? Or is there at least some of the sides sticking out?
If there sticking out like on a kitchen cabinet it's possable to scribe the cabinet and sand or paint it to fit.

The cabinet has a small recessed area on he back. The cabinets are particle board so I would be afraid to start sanding or cutting for fear of chipping. I think i will use moulding to hide the imperfection.
