Molding on a Slab or Wall Break on a Soffit?

Recommended Posts

Complicated question here, for what I would assume is a fairly common problem. So I've got this shower here and it's going to be a steam shower so we're lowering the ceiling height and in real life it'd be a soffit of course. But since I don't know how to break a line in a soffit like I can in a slab, for this purpose I used the latter. However, this presents an issue, seeing that unlike soffits, slabs will not assume the molding of the room they're placed in.

 

So, I either need to know a way to break the line of the soffit so I can get my shower's shape OR add molding to the slab I currently have hovering there...

No go in Pro.  X8 has moldings you can add apart from either slabs or soffits.

Try pushing a soffit into a corner like you would for a corner cabinet.

You could use multiple overlapping soffits, one for each side.

 

You could use very thin soffits placed and sized to go behind the crown where you want it.

Convert your slab to a custom counter top.  You have the same shape customizing tools, but counter tops can have molding applied ... and they're more flexible to use than soffits when it comes to creating shapes with obtuse angle corners.

 

Hope this helps. :)

OR.. you could just change your ceiling finish (j)  in the steam 'room' to 24" or whatever you need for it to be.
