Extending Crown Molding on Kitchen Cabinets


Hi,
I have existing crown molding on my kitchen cabinets. My ceiling is 9' high and there is about 1' between top of existing crown and ceiling. I want to extend the crown right to the ceiling and removing the existing crown is not an option. How can I make this happen without it looking like an "add-on"? Thanks!!!!

Re: Extending Crown Molding on Kitchen Cabinets


Short of building a soffit above to fill the space, I don't have a good answer for you. A 12" space is pretty big to fill and make it looks like it belongs there. If you removed the existing crown, you could add short cabinets on top, maybe with glass fronts, light them from the inside. Pictures might help.

Re: Extending Crown Molding on Kitchen Cabinets


Did you mean 1 foot or 1 inch?

If 1 foot then do what Mike suggests but that would require removing the existing crown. By the way. Why is removing the crown not an option? That might help come up with other ideas.

A picture might help too...
