Crown modling


I'm repainting my kitchen 16x35 and I'm wanting to install crown molding
around the breakfast area and stop at the fur down around the kitchen
cabnets. My sister said it must be extened onto the fur down. What needs to be done?

Do it any way you want. No design rules apply.

In older kitchens, usually, it's the dry walled box above the cabinets in the kitchen. Usually in kitchens with 8' ceilings and the cabinets butt up against it.

I've always preferred the stupid thing that's ugly and makes you have 30" upper cabinets...
