How should I handle this? As far as I can tell I have 2 options)

1) Choose a shoe moulding tall enough and scribe around the transition then rip base and moulding in kitchen to same height.

2) Cut a miter return, finish the unfinished wall then pick up baseboards/moulding in the kitchen from another miter return (i.e. the 6" wide wall would be finished, but no baseboards & moulding.

The short baseboard in the kitchen is getting replaced so don't mind that.

The kitchen is the raised tile floor, right? And the baseboard in there is getting replaced?

Why not just not just notch your base over the transition like this? (or am I missing something?):

That's the way I always do it. Very simple and clean.

I am assuming you are using Sketchup but drawing it out like you did is very helpful.

Yes, I used SketchUp. Sometimes a picture says it better than words can.

So you're both advocating ripping all of the kitchen base and shoe to keep the same height?

Agreed with ripping the kitchen base. Seems to be the simplest way to go about it.
