Crown on ceiling and cabinets5/24
I have a job coming up where the crown on the cabinets will go to the ceiling and then continue around the room where there are no cabinets on the wall. The entire room will have matching crown. We use Kemvar pigmented CV in a shade of white to finish the cabinets and the cabinet crown. I am interested in your thoughts on how the finish the crown on the walls. Either spraying the entire room's crown on the cabinets and walls with the CV or using a latex paint on the crowns. Just think there will be a lot on nails to fill on the wall crown and getting a match on the caulk at the ceiling line. Any ideas would be great. Thanks
I have a job just like that with dentils. I am going to spray the crown over the cabinets with CV and then at the next interior corner I am switching to a matching satin latex paint for the rest of the room
I run in to this often. I spray crown at top of cabinets to match cabinet color and painters will paint crown around room to match other interior trim. They are responsible for filling nail holes and caulking crown at ceiling and wall. If cabinets are stained, I generally will install stained crown at top of cabinets and the rest will be like other interior trim.
Hmmm... room trim is done by the trim carpenter, and painted like the rest. If the crown is free floating, or in some way special to the cabinets, then it gets applied at the shop and sprayed. Same for shoe, by the way... or base, if it continues.
Maybe I am not understanding the question correctly. My response is where the cabinets go to the ceiling and then crown is added at the top of cabinets. I will install the crown around the area that has cabinets. This crown will be the same color as the cabinets. Then the trim carpenters will install the crown around the rest of the area and painters will paint to match other trim in the house. If the cabinets are stained and the customers wants all crown in the kitchen area stained, I will furnish matching crown for that area.
Thanks for the responses. To clarify, our frameless cabinets will be held down 6" from the ceiling. The crown will mount to the top of the cabinets and bridge the gap to the ceiling. I will use a frieze board, a crown and a small panel mould to hide the ups and downs in the ceiling. I would spray the moulding on the top of the cabinets in a white CV.
My question is about using latex paint on crown around the room. (I will be using the same moulding around the room walls as I do on the cabinets.)
I could change to latex trim paint at an inside crown corner. Curious as to what others do? All CV all latex?
Our usual job is to hold the cabinet crown 1" below the finished ceiling or to drop an inch or so below the latex painted crown on the walls. This job has 101.5" ceiling so customer wants the cabinet crown to go to the ceiling and continue around the room.
When we have a job like this, we supply all of the crown in the primed state. That way the site finishers can have their way with it. I have seen guys spray CV on site, latex, and some choose to brush on a high quality oil based paint. If the finishers are any good, the end result looks great no matter what product they are using.
