Different ceiling heights along cabinet wall
I am hoping for suggestions on how to deal with different ceiling heights in our new kitchen. Our old kitchen had a ceiling height of 8 feet and our remodel/expansion will have 9 foot ceilings.
One wall of cabinets will be both 8 foot and 9 foot and I am having difficulty with the transition.
We will be using ikea cabinets and I have a screen shot of the room but with their software, I am unable to show the different ceiling heights.
The first picture shows the original room with the new addition and the ceiling height transition will be where the wall cabinets start and extend to the right. The oven/microwave cabinet and to the left will all be 8 feet high.
I want all of the cabinets to look built in - so what I am planning on is to using crown molding to bring up to the ceiling. With the 9 foot section, I am torn between stacking cabinets above the wall cabinets shown - or adding a trim panel and crown molding.
I am having difficulty uploading additional pictures at the moment.
Has anyone had to deal with this before?
