Crown vs Baseboard at stairwell.

Recommended Posts

I have the stairwell landing with crown molding - but there is excess material between floors that I want to hide.  See picture attached.  Any suggestions?

What is your image trying to show? You might pull back and give us a wider view, and say what material is excess.

Share a copy of your plan file so others can then look and see what can or can't be done.

Clarification to original post (for Eric).

 

Expanded view to reveal more stairwell as seen from 2nd floor.

The wall material (the brick wall paper) extends above the 1st floor crown molding.

Seeking recommendation on how to hide it; most likely a filler would have to be inserted.

I was hoping that the 2nd floor baseboard could be lowered to meet top of 1st floor's crown molding.

 

I tried to attach a sanitized version of the file, but it exceeds allowed file size.

The brick material you see isn't being hidden because the crown molding leans outward.   There is no 'cap' on the top of the crown molding, and no ceiling to hide what is behind it.
Give it a 'cap' with a box shape (blue, in the pic).
Don't use a soffit...it will give you trouble.

Jo_Ann thank you. it seems to be the best solution.  You must have gone through the same issue to know what to do.

Jo_Ann thought you would appreciate seeing how your recommendation worked.  It blends it with crown molding, hides the problem, and allowed deletion of the base board for the second floor.

 

Again thank you.
