Hello

I am in the process of installing crown molding in our home. I have run into an issue where the vaulted ceiling meets the flat ceiling. Does anyone have any ideas on how to transition from one to the other. I will have 4 of these to install. I have attached a photo of what I mean. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you wanting to run the crown up the vaulted ceiling portion or end at that point?

If you want to end at flat ceiling, put a little “turned back” piece using an outside miter..

You could install a plinth block, it would allow for an easier transition without creating a shadow from the returns mentioned by hotbyte.

uhhhhh….plinth block….shadow ?

You can mill a transition block for that union .

don’t know where your crown is from but a serious dealer that deals in custom moldings will have a partnering profile for different pitches that will match up on the rake.

If your crown is from the big box, they won’t have any idea what that is

From what i see in the pic your sorta stuck with a transition block due to the offset in your transition.

on the other hand…..appears it will paint so you can always shave and butcher to get within a suitable tolerance that will allow you to caulk and fill successfully

Enjoy the journey amigo ! JB

Bing images have a ton of ideas also.

Have your say...
