Crown molding or no crown molding?

2 months ago

Just purchased our first home and debating whether or not to install crown molding in our great room to add more character and make it look less box like. This is a newer build home.

If we go with crown molding, what size/type would look best for our home? Ceilings are about 9.5 ft. We are debating between 4-5 inches and possibly colonial.

Would it only look good if we paint our ceiling white as well? Walls and ceiling are currently an off white color.

Would it look ok if we leave our kitchen cabinets as is and install molding on the wall/ceiling above it?

Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
