3'' vs 6'' moldings for tops of cabinets

14 years ago

I have the option to get 39" cabinets from dynasty. That would leave me with a 3" crown molding.

The other way would get 36" cabinets and have a 6" crown molding. And there are some nice pictures with 3" crown molding.

I've looked at this website and I've seen alot of crown molding done using 6" and it looks fantastic. If I opted for 36" high cabinets to get the look, I'd lose 3" of inside storage (probably not usable)

What have other people chosen in this case? Or am I the only one that obsesses about such things.

My husband doesn't care and won't help.
