Can cabinet crown molding overlap window trim?
I've had my heart set on a wide casing around our kitchen window but couldn't afford to lose cabinet space, so we are in the predicament seen below--the crown on the cabinets leaves very little space for window trim. Our contractor's plan is to pad out (? - I can't remember the right term) the window by adding some wood on the inside edges to allow more room for the trim. There is just enough space for a 2 1/4 trim to clear the crown at the top left corner. If we go with a wide casing (say, 3 1/2 inch) then the top left corner of the casing would have to be cut out around the cabinet crown. I know that isn't ideal, but to get the overall look of the wide molding framing the window, I am considering it. What do you think? I think this is what is done in the photo here but it is hard to tell:http://www.houzz.com/photos/580987/Monte-Vista-Kitchen-traditional-kitchen-other-metro
