Help! What size Crown molding with 10 foot ceilings?

last year
last modified: last year

I am going to build a house with 10 foot ceilings. I am thinking 8 foot doors will be best. The great room will be 20 1/2 feet wide and 29 feet long, with adjoining dining room and kitchen off to the side. All doors to bedrooms open directly from the great room. My builder can build a type of crown molding from sheetrock that looks great. It will be installed in the great room, dining room, and bedrooms. It is 14 inches tall. If I put in the 8 foot doors with a 4 inch molding around them, that leaves a space of 6 inches of wall between the top of the door molding and the crown molding. Will that work? (The kitchen will have a tray ceiling that drops it down to 9 feet, so the crown molding will not go in that part of the house.)
