your opinion wanted

I am building a house with 8' walls and thinking about putting 36" wall cabinets w/ crown molding in kitchen, will this look ok versus 30"? because the 36" cabinets will only be a few inches from ceiling. Thanks,.... btw they will be raised panel maple

Put crown moulding around the top of the cabinets, and put accent lighting on top too. It'll look great.

I've done a dozen or so of those kitchens. Most houses around here have 8" ceilings. Some were done with soffits to the ceiling with a crown that was meant to blend in with the room. Some open at the top with the crown matching the cabinets. Some with a cabinet matching soffit and crown. All of them worked in the space.
Some lucky ones had 99" ceilings and opted for the 42" cabinets.
