40'' inch cabinet for 8 foot ceiling(IKEA)

yacht near rock island

I am planning to remodel our kitchen. Everything else is planned out except the cabinet height.

I just love tall cabinets and really really want the space but my ceiling is 8′ ft. With base cabinet + countertop height of 36” inch, 18” inch between countertop to wall cabinet, If I go with the 40” inch they will be almost flush with the ceiling(with 1.5” inch left). Will I have enough room for a decent moulding trim on top? Wondering if anyone has the same situation with us.

Here’s the picture of my kitchen with 40” inch wall cabinets and the 90” inch pantry.

Would appreciate any thoughts/inspiration.
