My kitchen and living room flow seamlessly together. In the future, I want to redo the cabinets with a dark wood like mahogany or cherry and cap the top with crown molding of the same wood. Right now, I’m about to put up crown molding in my living room and I was planning to paint it white, since all the other trim in my house is white. How should I transition from white crown molding when it runs into the cabinets? Should I return the white molding to the wall a few feet away from the cabinets, or should I just do an inside corner right where I hit the cabinets, one piece white and one piece wood? What do you think? Thanks!

Stopping at the cabinet with the white would be the best and least jarring option.

Hey alan you can put a corner block were the two meet and just have the painted crown dead in into the corner block.

I like a1Jim’s idea. This gives a great transition without the need to marry two pieces you have to get perfect to work out.

I can’t wait to see pictures.
