Crown Molding Suggestions

Posted by Korr44 (My Page) on

We have cased out the opening to our kitchen (to the left in the photo) with a decorative header, and wanted to duplicate the look on two other nearby openings on either side of a stone fireplace. Unfortunately, the profile of the crown is more substantial than the stone, so we are faced with having to do returns (pictured) or some other solution (blocks?) to terminate at the stone. We're not thrilled with the returns, as it will be imbalanced with the left side of the opening where casing will meet it. Pay no attention to the left side of the crown on the right opening...I left it long for now while we experiment. Suggestions?

Many thanks.

RE: Crown Molding Suggestions

Take the crown across the face of the fireplace instead of terminating it at the stone. It will require a dremel and/or multi tool to scribe it to the stone, but it will be better than a plinth block or return.
