I need to trim out the ceiling detail in a 9' x 11' room, it is a tin tile ceiling and unfortunately on one side of the room there is a 4 1/2" gap from wall to edge of tile detail and on the other there is a 7" gap.

I am going to be using a large cove crown and so far the best idea I have is just packing two pieces of stepped 5/4 flat stock on the flat against the wall with the bigger gap for the bottom of the crown to hit those so that the crown has a consistent reveal with the tile detail.

I have to imagine there might be some better ways to resolve this and I'd appreciate any suggestions.

dealing with off centered tin ceiling

Sounds like who ever did the tin needs some lessons. Needs to be redone to even reveal then trim as needed.

The tin is off center due to a change in the mechanical/electrical layout there was going to be a box chase on that wall and a smaller molding not a cove crown all the way around.

The individual tin tiles are riveted to one another now and are not coming down so a trim detail has to solve the issue.

I can make it look good with the ideas I have, was hoping for some inspiration to make things look great.

I had to do that on a hotel once, we ended up putting a piece of trim on the ceiling so the reveal was more like 24" on one side and 21" one on the other. It was about 20' off the ground though.
