Is this Crown plan going to look stupid?
Okay here are the parameters of the kitchen and the issue:
The ceilings are Cathedral. The side walls are 9' 1 3/4" high. I want the cabinets to go 9' high with the crown on top of that. That is not a problem. The problem lies in tying in the crown around the corner pantry. The walls on the corner pantry are 3" higher than the side walls. The Crown is: 3/4" wide bullnose with 5" riser board on top with 5" cove crown on top of that. Originally the riser would be set on or even with the front of the cabinets. In order to go around the corner and tie in with the pantry walls, the cabinet guy is saying that the bull nose will have to be exposed from underneath 1 1/2" with the riser sitting on it in front of the cabinets. So in other words, when you look up, you will see 1 1/2" of the bottom of the bullnose piece with the riser board and crown in front of the cabinets instead of even with them. See diagram below. Is that going to look stupid? What are my other choices without having to lower the cabinets?
