Should I use crown molding on walls in new kitchen?
We are beginning a kitchen renovation in which we are actually trading spaces for the dining room and kitchen. We are also doing some extensive remodeling/facelifting in other areas of the home, including new interior trim and doors that will hopefully take the home from standard builder grade to more of a craftsman style look.
We are planning on adding trimwork to all doors and windows like the one shown in this link:
Second sink location
I love how the designer has used the same trim profiles along the top of the cabinetry as they did the window and would like to do the same; however, to maximize effect, should I not have crown molding on the walls in the kitchen or would it be fine to do so?
Our existing space (formerly the dining room) already had crown in place and if I don't go back with crown, there will be need to some drywall repair done (which equals more $$$).
Also, my ceilings are only 8' so please advise on how to scale down the trimwork and cabinet height for the right proportions.
