Uneven ceiling height and crown moulding

9 years ago

Hello all, in the ongoing kitchen drama, we have most cabinets installed, which are 42". We also have a 4" crown moulding,which touches the ceiling in half the kitchen, but leaves a 1" to 1 1/4" gap in the other half (we have an older house, some sagging floor joists-we have had support put in but the ceiling still sags).
We could use a 'starter strip' type thing to bump up the crown moulding on the higher part or we could leave part of it not quite touching the ceiling. Contractor wants to do the latter, says it will look funny otherwise, but I am not so sure. to me, having a 1" gap between cabinets and ceiling kind of defeats the purpose of it all, but I don't know...
