We are remodeling our 1947 home to take the wall down to counter height between the dining room and kitchen. The dining/living has coved ceilings. I have two choices: option 1) keep about 10" of the wall from the ceiling and create a cased opening or option 2) make the ceiling between the two rooms equal (flat to each other, no wall).
The coves will stay as is with option 1, but not with the full opening. I don't want to lose the coves, but not sure what happens to them when you take out 10' of a 25' room's wall to the ceiling. The photos shown are similar to creating option 1, but I can't find anything if we went with option 2 and don't know what to do where the coves are cut off. Do they end abruptly?
Thank you for any help.
