Coving in a basement

Do people do coving in their basements when there are things like bulk heads present?

Id like to install it but am unclear how it will look with another corner edge underneath the top bulkhead.

Surely people don't install double coving

I've attached my bulkhead

The facing plane is only 3 & 1/2 inches

Will look bad IMO. When I was finishing my gym, I have a similar bulk but 1 1/2 and decided against it. It's the only room now in my basement without but I don't mind, it's a gym.

IF you have a full 3 1/2 piece to install, just do it over. Like a 3 1/2 crown would work, it would just cover the entire bulk head provided the bulk travels the length of the wall.

i think it would look fine. might be too much depending on the height of your ceilings.
in one room, we ran it about a foot from the ceiling and put in rope lighting for an effect.

Why? IMO, it's kinda ugly unless you do a full blown crown moulding.

My thought? Try not to draw attention to Bulk heads.
